Chiropractic Care Improves Health
Chiropractors are best know for treating patients with health problems related to the nervous system which includes the spine, back, neck, and other joint damage.|
"Oh, my aching back!" Better call the chiropractor. What about, "Oh, my aching head?" or "I wish I could be as healthy and active as I used to be."Do you call the chiropractor for this too?
Of course! Many people do. While chiropractors commonly help people manage back pain, they also help people with a variety of ailments, including headaches and even the common cold. Chiropractors specialize in detecting improper function of the spine and nervous system which can result in not only pain, but many other health problems. Their approach to healthcare is "holistic.” This means they stress the patient’s overall health and level of fitness, while primarily recommending only natural, drugless, non-surgical treatments.
Chiropractors follow a routine to diagnose illness. For example, they talk to the patient and take a medical history. They observe the patient’s posture and spine. They examine the patient’s body and test nerve function, bone structure, and joint movement. They sometimes use lab tests to confirm diagnoses, or x-rays to locate specific joint problems and injuries.
Chiropractors use many kinds of treatment. When health problems are related to the skeletal system, they manually adjust the spine and other joints. They also use therapies such as massage, heat, or stretching. Such therapies relax the muscles and stimulate tissues so that healing can occur. Chiropractors counsel patients about holistic health ideas, such as nutrition, exercise, and stress management. They may also apply supports, such as straps or braces, to body parts. Each time they see a patient, chiropractors write case notes in the patient's chart. In addition, they may consult with and refer patients to other health practitioners.
