What is Chiropractic?
The spine is the supporting column of the central nervous system. It is made bones and discs which separate them. They are delicately aligned and held together. When these bones become misaligned, nervous communications are disrupted bringing on pain in the spinal area and even areas further removed from the spinal area.
Chiropractic is a natural way of correcting these misalignments without the use of drugs. It uses precise force on specific areas of the spine to do this alignment. The nerve transmission can then heal on its own.
Chiropractic is carried out by a chiropractor. This is a highly trained medical professional who deals with neuromuscular disorders primarily through manual adjustment of the spine. A chiropractor also advises his patients on exercise, posture and ergonomics.
A chiropractor may help with :
- Back pain also called sciatica
- Neck pain
- Chronic headaches
- Arthritic pains
- Sports injuries to the back
- Car accidents injuries
A chiropractor diagnoses these conditions through mobility examinations and various tests which identify the specific spinal area affected. In a treatment session, the chiropractor will apply pressure gentle but firm pressure to help re-align the spine.
During a chiropractic adjustment, this is what you can expect:
- Sharp quick short lever arm thrust to a specific area of the back focusing on a specific vertebra.
- An audible pop sound from adjusted joints. This is called cavitation and occurs when gases in the joint are escape as the joint adjusts in a tighter manner. This does not always occur.
- Relief from joint pain. This may come immediately, or gradually as the muscles attached to the joint stop spasms and relax.
Is it painful?
A chiropractic adjustment is not painful. There can be slight discomfort as the chiropractor applies firm pressure or stretches bunched up muscles. Some aching and soreness can sometimes be felt if there has been a significant change in position, but this can be relieved using an ice pack.
