Chiropractic adjustments are just not limited to the spine. Spinal and joint manipulation can benefit various parts of the body.
Adjustments can alleviate pain, realign your body, and improve overall function.
A licensed chiropractor manipulates joints in the body with special instruments or hands. This is also referred to as spinal or joint manipulation. It can help alleviate pain and improve the body’s alignment and overall physical function.
Chiropractors diagnose and treat various conditions involving the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Chiropractic care can alleviate pain in the low back, headaches, neck, muscles, and other body joints.
What is the role of a chiropractor?
Consider aches, pains, creaks, and strains to grasp what chiropractors do. If you have a musculoskeletal system problem, a chiropractor can recommend alternative treatment options.
Chiropractic physicians do not prescribe medication, which enables them to think creatively. A chiropractor may prescribe the following:
Soft-tissue therapy: is used to relax tense muscles, alleviate spasms, and release fascial tension (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle).
Adjustments: To reposition joints and increase range of motion gently.
Joint bracing/taping (e.g., Kinesio taping): To aid in the healing process of sprained joints or muscles.
Exercises and stretches: To rehabilitate and maintain range of motion and mobility.
Referrals to experts in integrative medicine: For diet and nutrition guidance to reduce inflammation and promote weight loss.
Treatments are generally painless. However, soreness is a common side effect comparable to what you might experience following a workout. However, your muscles adapt over time.
Chiropractors can treat pain in any body part, including the head and jaws, shoulders, elbows and wrists, hips and pelvis, knees and ankles.
They examine the entire musculoskeletal system and address the underlying cause of the problem. Chiropractors look not only at the joints but also at the surrounding muscles.
Chiropractors diagnose and treat patients of all ages. Treatments vary in intensity and force according to the patient.
Each patient is screened to determine their suitability for chiropractic care. For instance, many older patients have bone thinning or softening, which precludes joint manipulation. If patients believe chiropractic care is too risky, they will refer them to the appropriate people and resources.
