What exactly is Chiropractic Care?
You may have heard from friends or family that has visitied a chiropractor before, but what exactly is chiropractic care and how does it affect someone’s health?
Well the definition of chiropractic care is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. In short, chiropractors treat the spine, nervous system, and everything that’s connected to it, which is pretty much every body part you can feel. Chiropractic is a natural treatment (also called alternative medicine). Doctors can treat a variety of problems including back pain, wrist pain (carpel tunnel), neck and other joint pain, IBS (irritable bowel syndrom), anixenty, stress, headaches, and much more.
Depending on the chiropractor, your visit with him or her may involve a few xrays and a health questionarrie. This will help the doctor to determine whether or not your problem is treatable and how long it may take. Some treatments only require one visit, while others may require many visits to completely correct.
Satisfaction rates for chiropractors are upto 83% (meaning that those patients that went to a chiropractor for some reason felt satisfied or very satisfied after their treatment). You can rest assured that your chiropractor has your best health in his or her interest and will all they can to ensure a quick and speedy recovery.
