Chiropractic is a noninvasive form of healthcare focused on the relief and prevention of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractors specialize in spinal and joint health, which means they most commonly treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headache, as well as joint pain in the hip, wrists, and knees.
Chiropractors utilize non-drug methods of easing and preventing pain. The most common technique used by chiropractors is spinal manipulation therapy, also known as chiropractic adjustments. During an adjustment, a chiropractor uses an instrument or his or her hands to apply a controlled, precise force directly to restricted joints in the spine. These joints can become restricted as a result of tissue injury. After an auto injury or other traumatic event, the tissues surrounding the spine undergo several physical and chemical changes which lead to inflammation, pain, and disability. Long hours of sitting or standing, poor posture, and repetitive motion injuries may also lead to tissue damage.
Chiropractic adjustments decrease inflammation to restore mobility in the affected tissues and joints. Chiropractors will often use soft tissue therapies, such as massage therapy, in addition to exercise therapies to facilitate recovery.
