What is Chiropractic? When is it Appropriate?

Chiropractic Care Chiropractic is a medical discipline that utilizes drug-free, noninvasive, cost-effective health care solutions to diagnose, treat, and prevent mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractic is based on the hypothesis that, when misaligned through injury or stress, spinal vertebrae, joints, and soft tissues impinge on the nerves, particularly those in and branching from the spinal cord. This impingement impedes the natural flow of electrical signals from brain to organs. Signals that enable the body to function properly, remain healthy, and heal itself.

The objective of chiropractic is to return vertebrae, joints, and soft tissues to proper alignment, primarily through manual manipulation. Unlike drugs, which often treat pain but not its underlying cause, and surgery, which can be risky and require a long convalescence, chiropractic has no adverse side effects and requires no post-treatment recovery period. When provided by a skilled practitioner, chiropractic treatment is extremely safe and proven through research and decades of data to be as or more effective than conventional medical care.

This is why many people, from professional athletes and industry workers to police officers and office workers get injury treatment from chiropractors and rely on chiropractors to help them maintain their health and level of performance.
