Many people are unfamiliar with chiropractic and what exactly doctors of chiropractic do. Chiropractic is a field that has elected to forgo the use of drugs or surgery to treat disorders of the joints, muscles, nerves, and soft tissues of the body.
Most Chiropractors focus primarily on the spine, which is the focus of the 5000 + hours spent in their studies. Of those hours, 1,000 are spent learning hands on techniques in an education setting. This accounts for why chiropractic treatments are so safe. In fact, chiropractors have some of the lowest malpractice insurance rates on any healthcare provider.
While the field of general chiropractic is helpful for many, our doctor has undergone extensive study in many additional evaluations and treatments. This makes our clinic uniquely equipped to handle athletic injuries, soft tissue problems, and chronic or difficult to manage conditions.
The most commonly used treatment in chiropractic is the adjustment, which involves placing force into one or more joints to encourage proper motion. This procedure is to a joint what a stretch is to a muscle. Think of a tight muscle. Having tight muscles is bad. To help, one might stretch the muscle past it’s commonly used range of motion. When done repetitively, this can improve the flexibility of the muscle. An adjustment has the same in intention with joints, to make something that is stiff move better.
