Chiropractic is an alternative medical treatment modality that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. A chiropractor uses manual techniques to correct blockages and interference in the spine and other joints of the body to relieve pain and discomfort.
During chiropractic treatment, the chiropractor will examine the spine and other joints of the body to see if there are any interference or blockages. These can be caused by injuries, poor posture, poor posture or other factors. If a blockage is identified, the chiropractor will use manual techniques such as gentle manipulations or adjustments to move the spine and affected joint into the correct position.
Chiropractic care can be used to treat a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, headaches, joint pain, knee problems and sciatica. It can also be used to treat sports injuries, arthritis and fibromyalgia.
It is important to note that chiropractic care is not for everyone. People with certain medical conditions such as osteoporosis, rheumatism and herniated discs should speak to a chiropractor before treatment. It is also important to find a qualified and experienced chiropractor who has the necessary skills and knowledge to provide safe and effective treatment.
