What is Chiropractic Treatment


Chiropractors use hands-on techniques to properly align the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine. It aims to restore joint mobility that has become restricted because of trauma, repetitive stress or postural problems. Proper alignment of the body’s structures will enable the body to heal itself. Chiropractors are also trained to give lifestyle advice and education and facilitate rehabilitation.

What does Chiropractic Involve?

Chiropractic Treatment

Your chiropractor will start with taking a comprehensive medical history followed by a physical examination. If you’ve had imaging done for your problem they will refer to that as well. In some cases the chiropractor will order more diagnostic imaging to determine if treatment is appropriate for you. The treatment will include one or more adjustments, soft tissue releases, exercises and nutritional advice and lifestyle recommendations will also be incorporated. Restoration of function and pain relief are the main goals of your treatment. Some common ailments that can benefit from Chiropractic Care:

  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Chronic Back Pain
  • Pregnancy

Is Chiropractic Care safe?

Chiropractors use skill, not force or strength to do the specific adjustments. Chiropractic care has a very low risk profile, however like most other interventions, chiropractic has the potential for adverse reaction in some people.

Do they hurt?

Chiropractic Treatments

While there can be a brief discomfort just after an adjustment, it is rare for it to hurt. Most people find having an adjustment relaxing. The popping sound that you may sometimes feel or hear is simply caused by a change in pressure in the joint, as spinal movement is improved. Some common ailments that can benefit from Chiropractic Care:

Neck Pain

Neck pain is very common, particularly for those that sit at a computer all day. Poor posture from looking down at your phone for prolonged times often causes neck pain too.

A chiropractor can realign your spine and ease the tension in your neck muscles. They can also give you tips about better posture if that is the cause of your pain.
