Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that treats the causes of physical problems rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic care is based on a simple but powerful premise: With a healthy lifestyle and normally functioning nerves and spine, the body is better able to heal itself. This is because the spinal cord, which is protected by the spine, is the main pathway of the nervous system. It controls movement, feeling, and function throughout your body. Chiropractic treatment focuses on adjustments to correct spinal malfunctions, called subluxations, in order to remove interference to the spinal cord and the nerves that exit between the bones of the spine. Science has found that the nerve system controls all other organs and tissues of the body, so a nerve system functioning at its best facilitates the body’s ability to cope with disability and disease.

What do chiropractors do?

Chiropractors use a natural, drugless, non-surgical approach to health care. They consider all aspects of the patient’s life: family history, work, lifestyle, environment, diet, exercise, and the patient’s physical and emotional stress factors. They place special emphasis on the care of the spine. The primary means of chiropractic care is the spinal adjustment, a short and painless thrust against the spine using only the doctor’s hands. Spinal adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, which are changes in the position of the spine that do not allow the spine to function properly. When the spine is subluxated, the nerves in that area may behave abnormally and cause pain or other problems. The intent of a spinal adjustment is to restore normal motion, function, and nerve impulse flow. Doctors of chiropractic medicine provide highly specialized care for musculoskeletal conditions, and they identify and correct vertebral subluxations.

What are the benefits of chiropractic treatment?

There are many benefits to chiropractic care including:

  • Spinal manipulation is more effective than other treatments for low back pain.
  • Chiropractic adjustments take less time and the benefits last longer.
  • Chiropractic adjustments are safe.
  • Chiropractic care costs less and results in fewer lost workdays.

Also, the treatments are pain-free. Many healthcare providers face patients who dread coming to their offices, fearful of a painful procedure or suspected bad news about their health.  Chiropractors are fortunate in this regard because the procedures they perform are never invasive. A trip to the chiropractor is much like a trip to the health club, an enjoyable and rewarding activity you do because you value your health. Because people continue with regular care for its long-term benefits, chiropractors also build close relationships with patients over time.
