Chiropractic Q & A

What is involved in chiropractic care?

Chiropractic medicine is focused on the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the way they function. A provider uses special techniques to diagnose diseases and dysfunctions of these two systems and to help relieve symptoms of pain, inflammation, and pressure that can interfere with your regular activities of daily living.

Unlike more “traditional” approaches to medical care that rely on drugs and invasive surgeries, chiropractic care helps promote wellness by tapping into your body's own natural ability to heal, using hands-on methods and lifestyle guidance aimed at restoring the normal balance of your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, as well as reducing inflammation and promoting circulation.

How does chiropractic care relieve pain and inflammation?

Chiropractic care focuses primarily on your spine and the nerves that travel through it. Your spine contains a series of interconnected bones called vertebrae. The nerves that travel through the spine exit through openings between these bones.

When the vertebrae are out of alignment, either due to disease, injury, or just the daily strains of life, the nerves can become compressed or “pinched” where they exit the spine. Local inflammation that occurs as a result of misalignment can also press on nerves and also compromise normal circulation.

As a result, the organs served by these nerves don't receive normal signaling, which can result in decreased function. Chiropractic care uses special techniques to gently realign the spine, so irritation, impingement, and inflammation are relieved.

Is spinal adjustment safe?

Spinal adjustment, as performed by a licensed chiropractor, is extremely safe. Chiropractors are trained in the specific “controlled force” techniques used to gently manipulate the vertebrae without causing damage to the spine, the nerves, or other tissues.

In addition to treating specific symptoms, regular spinal manipulations can serve an important role in helping maintain proper spinal alignment and balance.
