What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is the act of using hands-on the spine for manipulation. It combines other alternative treatments. When there’s the proper alignment of the spine, chiropractors believe that the body will heal without any other medication.

Therefore, manipulation is to reinstate flexibility to your joints with no movement from an injury, repetitive stress, or any traumatic occurrence.

Sometimes chiropractic care treatment does involve some conventional treatments to ensure healing in most severe cases.

Chiropractic Care Treatments

Many of us do not quite understand Chiropractic Care and the various treatments and methods which are used. In fact, some of us have very strong opinions regarding this topic!

Perhaps the best way to find out about Chiropractic care and treatment is to get a consultation with a local chiropractor.  One who is board certified.

During your consultation, a chiropractor will be able to determine whether or not you are a candidate for therapeutic massage, and what methods may be best for you to use in order to treat your pain and other symptoms. 

Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustments can help heal patients suffering from…

  • lower, and extreme joint pains

  • tennis elbow
  • other injuries on the shoulder

Manipulation Under Anesthesia

Sometimes you may be under so much pain or have a chronic condition such as arthritis, severe back, and neck pain. At times it may be muscle problems such as spasms or short muscles.  If you are in such conditions then the best manipulation is while you’re under anesthesia.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is an advanced surgical method intended to alleviate pressure on one or more degenerated spinal nerve roots or on spinal nerves passing through the back spinal column.

Decompression of your spinal neural structures is an integral part of the treatment of carpal tunnel, myelodysplasia, and scoliosis. The spinal decompression procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia in order to minimize the potential for complications. 

After the spinal decompression procedure, patients are usually encouraged to get up and get around slowly, taking frequent breaks and rest to promote the natural healing process. Some patients are discharged from the hospital the same day as the spinal decompression procedure.

Anyone can be a victim of back and neck pain or other nerve injuries. It’s good to get proper treatment and diagnosis.
