Chiropractic care is a health care profession that attends to the needs of patients who have issues related to their nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Their services are often used to address issues such a back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms and lets, as well as headaches. Chiropractic physicians typically do not subscribe drugs, but prefer to use a hands-on approach to resolving the patient’s complaints. Depending on the findings of an examination, the chiropractor may find it necessary to recommend physical therapeutic, nutritional, dietary or lifestyle services. If the chiropractor does find it suitable to treat the patient’s malady, the most common therapeutic procedure used is called “spinal manipulation,” In times where movement of the joints has become restricted as a result of tissue injury, manipulating the joints a specific manner generally helps to restore mobility. An advantage of using chiropractic care is that is that it rarely causes discomfort. In the rare instance where some level of soreness is experienced, it is typically minor and resolved within 12-48 hours. A chiropractor will usually employ a number of diagnostic techniques to find the source of an issue, including clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging as well as others.
