What is Chiropractic?
Complementary and alternative medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulation treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which can cause other disorders affecting the nerves, muscles and organs.
Who benefits from Chiropractic?
Everybody can benefit from Chiropractic care. Chiropractic offers benefits for health, wellness, and optimum physical function. Chiropractic is non-invasive and conservative in its approach to health. Therefore it does not utilize drugs or surgery, but rather facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Although many patients first seek Chiropractic care for treatment of an injury, or relief of pain, the benefits of a properly functioning spine and nerve system extend beyond mere pain relief to optimum health and well-being.
Does it hurt to get adjusted?
Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. Compared to other common treatments for pain, such as over-the-counter and prescription pain medications, chiropractic's conservative approach offers a safe and effective option.
