What are the Health Challenges that Chiropractors Commonly Help With?
Chiropractors help with a variety of musculoskeletal problems. These problems are commonly caused by poor posture at the office, or intense physical work, sport injuries or even household chores. Chiropractic may help to alleviate pain caused by tension in the muscles or joints. More than this, even if you don’t feel any pain, chiropractic helps keep your spine inline and your joints moving at their best.
Some examples of painful situations in which a chiropractor may help include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Injuries from daily repetitive activities which cause strain on your muscles or soft tissues
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Tight muscles that restrict your movement and flexibility
What Happens on Your First Visit to a Chiropractor?
You’ll receive a thorough chiropractic examination. You see, a chiropractor will want to know what’s happening with your body, your muscles and bones.
A chiropractic assessment often includes:
- A detailed health history
- Vital sign checks
- Visual inspection of the spine
- A visual and palpable inspection of the muscles and soft tissues around your spine and joints
- Orthopedic and neurological examinations, as required
The goal is to identify the underlying cause of your health complaint, and correct it (where possible).
If your health condition needs the attention of other health care professionals, you will be referred to the appropriate professional for your specific situation.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Let’s look at the different ways a chiropractor may treat you.
This is the main therapeutic procedure performed by a chiropractor. The aim is to restore overall joint mobility, to improve spinal motion and your body’s physical function. A chiropractic adjustment consists of applying a controlled amount of force on the specific joints in question. This helps to release tightness, reduce pain and facilitates healing.
Other areas may include:
- Exercises done under the supervision of a chiropractor
- Heat and ice application
- Ergonomic and posture advice
- Orthotics prescription
What we were saying is that chiropractic often helps many of the daily muscular and spinal problems we experience. Whether your problem is from an accident or injury, poor posture, repetitive day-to-day activities or something else, chiropractic aims to address these problems in a non-invasive and ‘hands on’ way.
