When accidents, falls, tension, over-exertion or other injuries occur, it can result in minor displacements or derangement of one or more vertebrae of the spine, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots directly by pressure or indirectly through reflexes, and requiring consultation with a chiropractor.
If you've never been to a chiropractor before, you may be a little worried about what will happen. But the fact is, visiting a chiropractor for pain is simple, safe, and usually painless. In fact, a visit to the chiropractor results in immediate relief for many people.
What does a chiropractor do?
The word "chiropractic" comes from ancient Greek and means "done by hand".
A Chiropractor is a regulated health professional that deals with the assessment of conditions related to the spine, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and joints of the extremities. A Chiropractor is specialist in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body - so you can enjoy everyday activities again as quickly as possible.
Chiropractors provide diagnosis, treatment and management of such disorders. Most frequently, patients come in due to:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Strains and sprains from daily activities
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Work and sport-related injuries
- Sports injuries
- Car accident injuries
- Arthritic pain
- Spinal Manipulative Therapy (Adjusting, Joint mobilization)
- Soft Tissue Therapy (Advanced Massage Techniques, Trigger point therapy, Percussive massage)
- Posture and Gait Analysis
- Therapeutic Exercise (Stretching)
- Ultrasound Therapy & Electrical muscle stimulation
