What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions of a biomechanical nature. This means problems that arise from the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body, but in particular the spine.
Chiropractic is a manual therapy which consists of specific manipulations, or adjustments, to the joints of the spine as well as other joints of the body. Soft tissue techniques such as massage, cross friction and trigger point therapy can also be used.
If needed specific exercises to either stretch or strengthen joints, ligaments or muscles can be recommended. These will be individually tailored to suit each individual patient’s abilities and goals.
Chiropractic does not involve the use of drugs or surgery in it’s treatment but instead improves the normal function of the body natrually. It relieves tension and irritation of nerves, muscles and joints which in turn reduces muscle spasm and pain.
