What Is Chiropractic Care and How Does It Help?

By KayLee Chie Kuehl 

Back pain is a common problem. That sore ache or sharp pain annoying you all day is one many of us have experienced. While there are ways to alleviate it through behavioral changes such as not slouching, staying hydrated, or moving around during the day, sometimes additional methods are required. Procedures like chiropractic care, for example, is a method able to treat back pain.  

But What Is It?

Chiropractic care helps heal the body of certain traumas without medication. Treatments emphasize the health of the spine and nervous systems. It is non-surgical and is often used to treat pain in bones, joints, and connective tissues. However, muscular pain in the neck and back are common problems. The goal of chiropractic care is to prevent chronicity, which is chronic pain, in troubled areas. After a treatment session, chiropractors are also able to suggest exercises and provide nutritional counseling.  

What Do Chiropractors Do?

To do this, chiropractors use spinal manipulation and manual therapies in order to improve range of motion and restore function. They are well trained academically and within their trade to know the body and are required to have an undergraduate degree in addition to four extra years in a chiropractic school of study. 

Who Visits the  Chiropractor? 

Over 22 million Americans visit a chiropractic clinic. About 35 percent of that number is looking to treat back pain due to a number of issues including accidents, sports, headaches, and strains. 

Is It Effective? 

Studies have shown chiropractic treatments are very effective! Though it is dependent on the levels of pain in regards to your condition, manual therapies have a high success rate for treating lower back pain, as well as other conditions.
