Doctors of chiropractic undergo some of the most rigorous education and
training requirements among healthcare providers. Doctors of chiropractic
are dedicated to helping patients enhance their overall health, facilitate
their body’s ability to heal itself, and recover from injuries.
If you’ve consulted a sports medicine specialist about a musculoskeletal
condition, he or she may recommend that you receive
chiropractic care as part of your treatment program.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
One of the many benefits of receiving chiropractic care is that it has
an impressive safety record, particularly when compared to treatments
such as narcotic pain relievers and invasive procedures. Patients who
undergo chiropractic treatment typically report immediate relief of symptoms.
However, there is the potential for minimal side effects, such as mild
muscle soreness or aching. These issues typically resolve within 24 hours.
What Conditions are Treatable by Chiropractors?
It is well known that chiropractic care can relieve pain and other symptoms
of the back and neck. However, chiropractors can treat many different
conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care can alleviate headaches, migraines, sciatica, jaw pain,
carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other conditions.
How does Chiropractic Care work?
Sports injuries, trauma from accidents, and repetitive movements all place
stress on the body and can result in structural distortions. A chiropractor
can resolve these structural problems, known as subluxations, by placing
the body back into its proper alignment and allowing the body to heal itself.
What Occurs during an Adjustment?
First, the chiropractor will identify one or more subluxations. Then, he
or she will use either the hands or a special instrument to apply force
in a precise direction. This enables the bones to return to their proper
positions and alignment.
