Chiropractors are a working branch of physical health care experts who focus on the use of adjustments and manipulation of the spine. This type of treatment dates back to ancient Egypt and China where manipulation was administered to treat physical alignments and for individuals who complained of debilitating bodily pain.
Today, Chiropractic care is a highly functional form of treatment. A chiropractic professional focuses on the structural components of the spinal cord, and through manual manipulation, aids in the treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. In fact, chiropractors are firm believers in educating to maintain a healthy lifestyle (through selective exercise) to upkeep the progress from the treatments.
Chiropractors focus on the connection between the nervous system and spine, in order to:
- Restore the structural integrity of the spine
- Reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue
- Improve overall health of the individual
In fact, the manual therapies that chiropractors administer have shown prominence in the treatment of lower back pain, neck pain, and the treatment of lumbar herniated disc. With successive chiropractic treatments and a comprehensive treatment plan involving spinal manipulation, patients show long term improvement in chronic lower back pain. In this form of treatment, the chiropractor applies a high-velocity, short lever arm pressure to the target vertebra. This process helps relive and reduce nerve irritability, improve range of motion, and improve overall functionality.
The treatment procedure with our chiropractic professional is as follows:
During the initial consult, the patient will meet with our chiropractor to discuss the physical alignment at hand, by outlining the following:
- The duration and frequency of the symptoms
- Detail of the symptoms
- Indicating the parts of the body experiencing pain
2- Comprehensive History
- The second aspect of the consultation will include a comprehensive history that relates to learning more about the physical alignment at hand and the overall health of the individual, by assessing the following information:
- Family history
- Medical history
- Occupational history
- Lifestyle habits
3- Physical Examination
In the process of the physical examination, the chiropractor has at their disposal a myriad of methods that narrows to the spinal segment that is in need of isolation and treatment. A thorough, and sometimes holistic approach will be used to treat and attempt to balance out the structure and alignment of the body.
