Chiropractic means done by hand. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system. It generally involves “manual treatment” or hand treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians. Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Their major concerns are the effects of the neuromusculoskeletal system and its effect on the body’s control and performance.
Chiropractors cure and relieve lower back pains, improve reflexes, correct joint and tendon problems, align spinal cord, and promote better posture. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment or management plan. He or she may recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractors believe our bodies are self healing and once pressure is relieved from our nerves and our bodies are back in their natural alignment then healing will take place. A healthy body, operating at its full potential, can adapt to injuries and stresses of life and provide the best possible defence against illness. Chiropractic optimises an individual’s health and wellbeing creating good energy, zest for life and a greater immune system.
The chiropractic measures and procedures are not painful. In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. Chiropractors are specially trained to perform spinal adjustments. These adjustments use a specific force in a defined direction to release the vertebra back to its normal position. These adjustments are safe and pain-free. Chiropractic treatment is one of the most reliable help for people of old ages while others who seek help from a Chiropractor suffer from headaches, ear infections, joint misalignment, arthritis, muscle and back pains, and others. It Manipulates, or adjust the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. Treatment of the whole person and seeking out the root cause of a physical ailment makes much more sense than taking harmful drugs and submitting to invasive (expensive) surgeries.
