What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a dynamic healthcare profession that is passionate about helping an active population stay active and mobile. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on approach that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system; which involves any ailment related to nerves, muscles, tendons and joints. The health of their patients is enhanced through the use of a variety of techniques and approaches which may include the chiropractic adjustment, joint mobilizations, soft tissue release techniques (Graston Techniques, Active Release Techniques, Functional Range Release), and corrective and rehabilitation exercises.
As primary contact health care professionals, chiropractors have a comprehensive and complex understanding of the human body, enabling them to diagnose and treat, and when necessary co-manage and refer patients to other health care professionals.
What can you expect when visiting a Chiropractor?
You can expect to have a thorough history taking, followed by a comprehensive physical exam which may include a biomechanical and orthopedic assessment and functional movement screen. A thorough assessment aids in the development of an individualized treatment and management plan to help you reach your health and movement goals. Doctors of chiropractic can also educate their patients on various aspects of overall health and wellness including diet, exercise, ergonomics and stress management.
