What is chiropractic care all about?

Chiropractic is a health-care profession that focuses on the spine as well as other joints in the body, and their connection to the nervous system. The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.” Chiropractors do manual adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery. An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year.

A Chiropractor is a primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and well-being. They focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and care of spine-related disorders and other painful joint issues. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching, and nutritional advice.

A chiropractic adjustment is a safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Accidental falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes can impact tissues, the nervous system, and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more at risk of other chronic problems. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement, and improve performance.

Chiropractic treatment is suitable for people of all ages. Chiropractors are trained to safely treat pregnant women, babies from birth, children, and adults up to the very elderly. Treatment techniques are modified to suit the age and size of the person.

So how much does it cost? Chiropractic care costs the same as, or less than, other types of health care and is included in most health insurance plans. Chiropractors also collaborate with other health-care providers every day and are trained to refer you to the appropriate specialist when needed.

Chiropractors use scientific research, clinical experience, and patient preferences to provide the best care possible. 95% of chiropractic patients say it’s effective, and 89% recommend chiropractic to their family and friends.

Best of all, Chiropractic is safe, effective and affordable care!
