Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who specialize in the diagnosis, management, and prevention of spine disorders without surgery. They offer both manual therapy techniques and state-of-the-art treatments with electric stimulation techniques known as electrotherapy. Chiropractors mostly treat low back pain, but they also focus on providing relief for other conditions that occur in parts of the body connected to the spine such as leg or arm pain due to nerve shortening or damage. The procedures involve manipulation or traction of the spine by adjusting alignment and adjusting muscles causing the vertebrae to move into their proper place.
Second Opinion Chiropractic does not refer to chiropractic treatment for all health concerns. No procedure is offered that is not appropriate to your condition. There are two ways chiropractors can treat your back pain: manual therapy and spinal decompression. Manual therapy involves spinal manipulation through manipulation of the spine. Spinal decompression involves the manipulation of the spine to realign the vertebrae. The procedures are not recommended for people with mechanical spinal problems. If a patient has a mechanical condition and has not been properly evaluated, chiropractors do not perform spinal decompression. The procedures are also not supposed to be used as a replacement for another type of doctor's treatment or surgery.
advantage of chiropractic treatment is that the spine is one of the few organs in the human body not protected by a bony cage. It is therefore always susceptible to misalignment and, therefore, to injury and disease. The spine reflects the state of our entire being and is involved in every movement in this body, including breathing and circulation, pronation (rolling inwards) of joints such as the shoulder or elbow resulting from poor posture, muscle tightness, and spasms. A healthy spine reflects the vigor of a healthy individual. In fact, the loss of spinal function is responsible for many health problems such as chronic back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis. Spinal alignment is also critical to the efficient function of organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidney systems. A chiropractic adjustment helps you to achieve your personal best in sports activities and daily living by helping you regain control over your spine.
