When it comes to pain management and relief, Chiropractic care is a branch of healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure – mainly the spine – and its function. Conditions commonly treated by chiropractors include back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries and repetitive strains. Patients also seek treatment of pain associated with other conditions, such as arthritis.
Chiropractic is derived from Greek words meaning “done by hand.” In practice, this translates to Chiropractic adjustments of the spine and joints to help relieve pain and stiffness, improving the function of the associated nerves, joints and muscles.
Chiropractic treatments begin with a medical case history, orthopaedic and neurological evaluation and might conclude with adjustments to help realign the spine.
Scientific evidence indicating that Chiropractic care is considered effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other conditions relating to the spine is continuing, however just like any form of medical treatment individual responses cannot be guaranteed.
