Chiropractic Q & A What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a type of alternative medicine that is used to treat musculoskeletal pain, increase range of motion, and restore joint and muscle function. Chiropractic doctors, also known as chiropractors, are experts in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, as well as chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
IHS Medical Group also provides massage therapy, physiotherapy, and rehab to help patients get out of pain and function at their best. Basic nutritional counseling – either for weight loss or to improve your diet – as well as vitamin and mineral supplements to combat inflammation and reduce pain may be included in your treatment.
Chiropractic care does not require the use of medications or surgery, making it a non-invasive alternative to other pain management methods for patients who prefer not to use medications or undergo invasive procedures.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as manual manipulation, is a hands-on technique that restores a joint’s mobility and function while also reducing pain and inflammation. Before a chiropractic adjustment, a member of our team evaluates your spine to see if an adjustment is a good fit for you.
The team member then places one or both hands alongside your spine and applies a quick pressure impulse. You may hear or feel a popping or cracking sensation during this impulse, which lasts only a few seconds. When a joint is stretched, carbon dioxide gas is released from the joint. Following a chiropractic adjustment, you should feel immediate relief or an improved range of motion.
Although chiropractic adjustments are most commonly performed on the spine and pelvis, they can be performed on any joint. This can help with pain and stiffness in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.
Is chiropractic safe?
Absolutely. Chiropractic care is one of the safest non-invasive treatments for low back pain, neck pain, and headaches, according to the American Chiropractic Association. The only common chiropractic side effect is mild soreness at the treatment site for one to two days after treatment. This soreness resembles muscle soreness following exercise.
