What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on discipline, focusing on the neuromuscular system.
Chiropractors diagnose and provide treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Treatments chosen depend on the needs of the individual. Chiropractors take a complete history and follow with a physical assessment to confirm or determine a diagnosis.
Chiropractic care can be a primary method of treatment. However, when other conditions exist, it can complement/support medical treatment by relieving associated neuro/musculo/skeletal problems. Chiropractic care can provide symptomatic relief for many chronic conditions as well, improving general well-being.
As necessary, chiropractors refer patients directly or indirectly for additional diagnostic information (x-rays, ultrasounds and MRIs).
Once your diagnosis is made, your chiropractor will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan. It may include soft tissue treatment, neuro-functional contemporary medical acupuncture, spinal manipulation, therapeutic exercise prescription, taping, custom orthotic fitting, and/or laser therapy.
