Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline with a focus on treating the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. By employing various manual therapy techniques, chiropractic can help to reduce pain, increase mobility and function and improve overall quality of life. 
 
Chiropractors employ various techniques in order to help patients achieve their goals. The technique most commonly used by chiropractors is the chiropractic adjustment. Adjustment involve a quick and specific thrust through a joint in order to restore the motion and proper biomechanics of the targeted joint. Some benefits of adjustments include pain relief, decreased muscle tension and increased mobility. Adjunctive techniques commonly include joint mobilizations, muscle release therapy, therapeutic modalities, exercise prescription and lifestyle modifications. 
 
The chiropractic approach to care starts with a thorough history and physical exam and is followed by the presentation of a diagnosis along with a treatment plan recommendation tailored to each individual's goals.
Three stages of care
Relief or Acute Care
This phase is designed to relieve any pain and discomfort arising from the condition. In this stage you can expect frequent, carefully timed visits. 

Rehabilitative or Supportive Care
This phase is designed to treat the underlying cause of the original symptoms by correcting dysfunction. This will promote a more complete and optimal healing environment for the affected tissues. In this stage you can expect a decreasing frequency of visits which can be supplemented by home exercises as well as work and lifestyle modifications.
 
Maintenance or Wellness Care
The final phase of care is designed to maintain the improved function and prevent the return of the original condition. Another benefit of regular care is the detection of small problems before they become more serious. In this stage the visits are much less frequent.
