What Is A Chiropractor
A Chiropractor is a health professional who practices Chiropractic, which is a health discipline focused on the relationship between the nervous system and spine, and how this affects our health and well-being.
Chiropractors learn that biomechanical and structural degradation of the spine can ultimately affect the nervous system, causing pain, discomfort and possibly chronic issues. Chiropractic adjustment looks to restore the structural integrity of the spine and reduce pressure on neurological tissue and subsequently relieve pain and improve the general health of a person.
What Does A Chiropractor Treat
Through an array of various non-surgical techniques, Chiropractors treat some of the following types of pain:
- Lower back pain and leg pain (sciatica nerve)
- Neck pain
- Repetitive Strain
- Athletic Injuries
- Injuries resulting from accidents such as car accidents
The discipline of Chiropractic focuses primarily on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. However, the problems that may be treated through chiropractic care are not exclusively limited to nervous and musculoskeletal issues. Chiropractic adjustments may improve a person’s general health as the spine regains integrity and movement throughout daily life improves.
Chiropractors will often refer their patients to medical doctors and other health practitioners for lower back issues if determined appropriate or necessary. Wellington Chiropractic Care Facility works in conjunction with other spine specialists and medical physicians through our local network in order to provide our patients with optimal treatment and the best chiropractic care.
What Is An Advanced Chiropractic Adjustment
The human spine can become irregular and maladjusted for many reasons; bad posture, prolonged sitting, sports injuries or accidents can cause damage over time that eventually produces pain and discomfort, and limits mobility.
During a chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor will apply a series of high velocity, short-lever arm thrust applied to the vertebrae, that will reduce subluxation between skeletal and neurological tissue in the spine. This will relieve stress to the lower back and neck areas, allowing a patient to move and walk better, with less discomfort. Prolonged chiropractic treatment will have better results; an advanced chiropractic adjustment is focused on making pain and discomfort eventually disappear completely.
