CHIROPRACTIC CARE, CHIROPRACTIC REHABILITATION, AND CHIROPRACTIC THERAPY
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. It is the largest alternative medical profession. Chiropractors have many similarities to primary care providers; however, they are more similar to a medical specialty such as dentistry or podiatry. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues. Treatment may also include exercises and health and lifestyle counseling. The “specific focus of chiropractic practice” is the chiropractic subluxation. Traditional chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body’s function and its innate intelligence.
Chiropractic care can help relieve and manage pain for all types of spinal injuries including back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and migraines/headaches. There are various medical conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and other musculoskeletal conditions affecting one’s health which can be addressed with chiropractic services.
Chiropractic primarily uses manipulation, also known as an adjustment, as treatment for the patient’s overall well-being. Also utilized are adjunctive procedures, such as muscle stimulation, ultrasound, cold and heat, and manual traction (passive care). In addition, the use of various stabilization exercises (active care) improves strength of the whole body.
