What You Need to Know About Chiropractors

By Sara Butler

If you feel a little mystified by what a chiropractor does, you’re not alone. A lot of people aren’t sure exactly, but this issue is about to be cleared up! Here are some of the things everyone should know about chiropractic care to help you understand if it’s right for what’s ailing you!

Chiropractors Don’t Prescribe Medication

Chiropractors believe in a completely natural approach to your health, which is why they don’t prescribe medication. Instead, when you go to a chiropractor with symptoms, they investigate to find the underlying cause of the treatment and work with you to treat it. You may need to change your lifestyle habits or undergo manual therapy with a chiropractor to treat the problem. They also provide:

  • Chiropractic adjustments – Chiropractors assess your joints and work to remove any joint restrictions or dysfunctions which may be impacting your health and wellness
  • Exercises and stretches – Chiropractors may show you some helpful exercises to strengthen muscles and stretches to help reduce tension and relieve muscle spasms
  • Referrals – If the chiropractors at The Joint feel you need to be referred to another health care professional for treatment, then they will do just that

You shouldn’t expect treatments from the chiropractor to be painful.

Chiropractic is for More Than Back Pain

Chiropractors are qualified to treat pain anywhere on the body, from your head to your toes. They look at the entire musculoskeletal system and treat the root problem they find there. They ensure the joints are moving properly and that surrounding muscles are functioning at their very best.

Chiropractors commonly treat:

  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems
  • Hip problems

Chiropractors Love Prevention

The goal of the care provided to you by the chiropractor is prevention in the long term. They don’t look to treat your symptoms but to ensure proper function of your body for life. Your chiropractor will assess how you move through your day, how you sit, how you stand, and even how you sleep. They may suggest changes to your lifestyle that are impacting your health and can also offer nutritional advice to ensure your body is functioning optimally.

Understanding what the chiropractor does is pretty simple. If you have an issue involving your musculoskeletal system, then a chiropractor can give you treatment options to help.
