What is Chiropractic Medicine?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the prevention and treatment of disorders effecting the muscular, skeletal and nervous system.

Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, laboratory testing, spinal manipulation and rehabilitative exercises often times accompanied by nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

What to Expect

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of tissue injury.

Injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can result in inflammation, pain, and loss of function. Manipulation of the affected joints and tissues restores proper mobility, alleviates pain and flushes out inflammatory chemicals, allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractors may also refer patients to an appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or a condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of a health care team.

Chiropractic adjustments rarely cause discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or achiness following treatment that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.
