WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?Chiropractic is a health care profession that is natural and hands-on aimed to restore your health without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors are highly trained on disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and are "portal of entry" doctors, meaning you do not need a referral by another health care provider.
Chiropractic has been around since the 1890's with a philosophy centered on treating the whole body with high velocity/ low amplitude (HVLA) manual adjustments. Chiropractic care is centered around treating limited joint motions, muscle spasms, nerve irritation and inflammation to allow your body to heal and recover naturally.
WHAT IS AN ADJUSTMENT?A chiropractic adjustment, or a manipulation, is a therapeutic procedure aimed at restoring motion to a joint that has become restricted due to tissue injury. Tissues are often injured from a traumatic event, like a car accident or a sports injury, or from slumped posture while sitting at the computer or even from lifting improperly. When tissues are injured, they undergo physical and chemical changes that create pain and inflammation, which leads to a decreased function. Manipulation of an involved joint helps to restore normal motion, break up scar tissue and decrease muscle tension and tightness to help with the healing process.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle yet effective, and most patients report feeling some type of relief right away. Often times you will hear a "pop" or "crack" with an adjustment.
