What Methods Do Chiropractors Use?

By Stepy Kamei

If you know a little bit about the nature of chiropractic care, you probably are at least vaguely familiar with the concept of spinal adjustments and manipulations. Still, it would benefit you greatly to know more about what exactly goes on during a typical chiropractic session.

Once familiar with the different remedies doctors of chiropractic (called DCs) rely on to improve the overall health and wellness of each of their patients, you'll likely be wondering why you weren't using it in the first place. Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment option for people of all health statuses and conditions, and you should know what it can do to help you and your specific health needs. 

Adjustments to the Spinal Column

Chiropractors primarily focus on improving, as well as maintaining, the overall health and well-being of a patient's spinal column. This is because chiropractors know the spinal column is crucial to protecting the body's central nervous system. When the spine is injured or out of alignment for any number of reasons, this has a direct impact on the central nervous system's functions -- and therefore, impacts the entire rest of the body. 

When the spinal column is thrown out of alignment due to an injury, strain, illness, or other traumatic event to the body, the central nervous system struggles to process communication between the body and the brain as effectively. This can lead to issues with sleep, digestion, stress, and blood pressure levels, among other problems. Fortunately, doctors at The Joint Chiropractic clinics are trained in the ability to correct these spinal misalignments -- which are known as vertebral subluxations -- using very safe and practical techniques. Manual manipulation is one of the most common methods chiropractors use to bring the spine back into its proper alignment. Using applied force and pressure to specific areas of the spine, misalignments can be corrected in a safe and gentle manner.

Chiropractors are also aware of the benefits of other natural and holistic remedies. This is why they often recommend their patients use heat and cold packs to improve circulation while bringing pain relief.
