What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders and conditions related to the spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors also focus on treating the body as a whole and utilize nutrition, patient education, postural assessment, exercise, and lifestyle guidance to help patients realize their full health potential. The current chiropractic definition is “a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.” The word “Chiropractic” is derived from Greek words meaning “done by hand”, which is correct, since chiropractors are now known as “manual therapists.”
Does Chiropractic work?
The short answer is – yes! Chiropractic is a profession that seeks to uncover the actual problem and fix it rather than cover up symptoms. Over time, physical stresses can add up and wear your body down, which eventually surfaces as pain or inability to do certain activities (dysfunction). Rather than attempting to cover up symptoms or waiting for them to go away on their own, it is important to discover why symptoms are present and receive chiropractic treatment for this underlying issue.
