Chiropractic is a natural method of care that focuses on helping the body heal itself. The chiropractor performs spinal adjustments that help balance the nervous system, correct spinal imbalance, and return the body to a state of optimum health. Because the spine is the center of all nervous system activity within the body, it is the place that many common problems originate. When the spine is not properly aligned, many different problems can be the result. Neck pain, back pain, headaches, and many other issues can happen when the spine isn't properly balanced. Chiropractic care does not rely on medication for treatment but is instead focused on encouraging the body to use its own considerable healing power. Chiropractors can also help patients to live overall healthier lives through lifestyle counseling.
Chiropractic care is good for the whole family. Patients can have their first adjustment when they are still toddlers, in fact. Many pregnant women have chiropractic adjustments throughout their pregnancy and find it so beneficial that they continue to have adjustments alongside their children as they grow up. While many people first visit a chiropractor when they are injured or unwell, this type of care is also good for healthy people who want to achieve optimum well-being. People of any age can have chiropractic treatment, as it does not involve potentially dangerous drugs or techniques. Chiropractic is for anyone who wants a natural solution for their health concerns and issues.
A chiropractic adjustment is performed while the patient lays comfortably on their belly. As the patient simply relaxes, the chiropractor will begin gentle spinal manipulations. These movements feel similar to a massage with a bit of extra pressure at times. The adjustment is usually done using only the chiropractor's hands, although specialized chiropractic tools can be used if necessary. The chiropractor will gently but firmly guide the spine into the right position. Patients rarely experience any pain during adjustments, and relief can be almost immediate.
