Chiropractor Treatments

 

 

When people are in back or neck pain, they often think about going to a chiropractor. But first, they want to know what they can expect out of a chiropractic treatment.


Of course they do, and if you’re in pain, you do too! Having someone manipulate your spine can be scary, but not if you know exactly what they’re doing, and what a typical chiropractor treatment consists of.

Spinal manipulation, or spinal adjustments as they’re also called, is a major part of chiropractic treatment and, the treatment works exactly the way it sounds. Using a hands-on technique, a chiropractor will manipulate and adjust certain bones and tissues.

Other spinal manipulations include things such as “gapping,” which is when air is gently forced out of the spinal joints. There are many conditions and injuries in which chiropractors find manipulation to be useful. But, although spinal manipulation is the most common chiropractic treatment, it’s definitely not the only one that’s used!

Soft tissue therapies, such as deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy are also common treatments that chiropractors use. These treatments work to go deep into tissue to calm and repair them. Physiotherapy modalities are also sometimes used to treat pain or injury through chiropractic.

These treatments often rely on ultrasounds to determine and correct problems and in some instances, electrical stimulation is also used.

Chiropractors aren’t always hands-on in their treatment though. Chiropractors are grouped as part of alternative medicine. To stay true to this, chiropractors will use other treatments such as nutrition advice, stress management therapy, and herbal therapies to treat their patients.

A lot of focus is also placed on preventative treatments so that the patient can learn how to take care of their back properly and without strain so that the injury or pain does not reoccur.

The Safety of Chiropractic Treatment

This is usually one of the first concerns that people have with chiropractic treatment and so, we'll get it out of the way. More and more studies are coming out all the time pointing towards the safety of chiropractic as an alternative form of treatment that does not involve surgery or medication, when it is performed by a certified and experienced professional chiropractor.

Even though a lot of study is still being done on the safety of chiropractic, the most famous was also one of the first studies to ever be done. That report is the Magna Report, which was published in 1993.

The study was a Canadian study and not only found that chiropractic treatment is in fact safe, but that it's much safer than conventional methods of treatment which often involve taking prescriptions that come with side effects, or having invasive surgery performed. And if, after all, you're going to take a look at the safety of chiropractic, you must also look at the safety of the alternative.

This report not only showed that chiropractic was a very safe and effective form of treatment for patients suffering from lower back pain, but that it should be the first treatment of choice and that conventional methods should be avoided altogether...
