If you have questions about chiropractic but not a whole lot of answers, now might be a great time to find out more.
In an era where natural is becoming more and more appealing, and wellness coaches often help prevent injury keeping us healthy and active, chiropractors can be valuable resources.
What do chiropractors do?
The American Chiropractic Association says chiropractors care for all ages and health conditions, but are especially known for their expertise in back pain, neck pain and headaches, using highly skilled manipulations to help achieve relief restore normal schedules.
Chiropractors also treat injuries and musculoskeletal disorders involving muscles, ligaments and joints and offer advice on nutrition, exercise, workplace habits and wellness changes that might involve weight loss, counseling or relaxation exercises.
Is chiropractic treatment ongoing?
The hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment requires patients to visit the chiropractor a number of times, which would be discussed along with an ongoing plan of treatment. In contrast, treatment from a doctor often involves an initial visit followed by prescribed medications and advice on what the patient should follow up with on his or her own at home.
What Happens When You See the Chiropractor?
The chiropractor’s goal is to help bring pain relief whenever possible without medications or surgery. In the initial visit the chiropractor will do a spinal adjustment to evaluate the health of the spine, take a full medical history and discuss what is going on in the patient’s life, and what their daily activities look like. In chiropractic visits the goal is to keep the spine in good health, insuring the whole nervous system is working well.
I have watched many friends seek chiropractic help to solve injuries or strains. Many were at the top of their game in their businesses and also maintaining an active life with family and friends. Trips, exercise, parties and plans were all happening until sudden pain or an injury intervened. Often they saw a doctor first and then a chiropractor to seek relief. Gradually with the chiropractor’s help they regained their normal schedules and made their way back to the life they loved.
For some the chiropractor advised losing weight and trimming back work hours. For others relaxation, stretching and strengthening exercises were used.
