Do you suffer from joint pain? Do you find it difficult to move or function from day-to-day? If so, you can benefit from chiropractic care. But wait! What is it? What are the benefits? What types of procedures are offered? If these are some of the questions you have, continue reading on for the answers.
Question: What is chiropractic care?
Answer: It is medical care that is deemed natural. Chiropractors will rely on the x-rays and MRIs to make a proper diagnosis, but that is usually in terms of medical tools and technology. They operate with a hands-on approach. This approach is known as manual therapy. Often, most physicians only treat the problem causing symptoms of pain and discomfort. Chiropractors want to treat these symptoms too, but they go directly to the source and fix it.
Questions: What type of problems can chiropractic care treat?
Answer: Just about anything. If you suffer from pain and discomfort, a chiropractor should be able to provide you with relief. This relief may not be immediate, as diagnosis and proper treatment plan must first happen. Chiropractic care typically involves therapeutic massages or realignment. It has been used to treat the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis, whiplash, and sports injuries.
Question: Who can undergo chiropractic care?
Answer: Just about anyone. You will rarely find any restrictions or age requirements. If they do exist, they are the doctor’s personal preferences. Chiropractic care, when properly performed, is safe for individuals of all ages, including children and the elderly. Pregnant women can benefit from it. For most, it makes birth easier and less painful.
Question: What type of schooling and experience must chiropractors have?
Answer: Requirements vary depending on the state. What you want to look for, as a patient, is a doctor with a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree. There are various tests that one has to undergo and pass. Once again, these vary by state. To receive a state license, more testing is required. As for schooling, it is usually an ongoing practice. New techniques are developed each year and tips are regularly shared between professionals. Many chiropractors continue their schooling and attend yearly chiropractic conferences. This is not usually required, but done to better their skills and treatment.
Question: Does chiropractic care work?
Answer. Yes. Many individuals and some medical professionals write off chiropractic care as a questionable form of alternative medicine. This is not the truth. Chiropractic care is very successful. Millions of men, women, and children have used the services of a chiropractor worldwide. Many opt for continued treatment and care. They wouldn’t if they didn’t notice an improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain.
Question: Can I do my chiropractic care at home?
Answer: No, you shouldn’t. Many mistakenly believe that since chiropractic care involves using the hands, it can be done at home. Yes, manual therapy does involve the use of the hands, but it is much more than that. Precision is required. Chiropractic adjustments are used to decrease pain and improve mobility in locked up joints. Yes, the hands apply force, but if you are not accurate more damage and pain are likely.
Question: Is chiropractic care long-term?
Answer: It depends. It all depends on the severity of your pain, the frequency, and your chiropractor’s choice of treatment. For example, if headaches are caused by spinal distortion, vertebrae realignment is performed. A chiropractor may suggest a few follow-up appointments, but treatment is usually short. On the other hand, those suffering from osteoarthritis deal with pain and daily. Therapeutic massages will reduce the pain, but continued treatment is best for long-lasting pain relief.
Question: What makes chiropractic care better than traditional forms of medicine?
Answer: A lot. For starters, it is important to note that chiropractors do not discourage seeing a primary care physician. Chiropractors specialize in alleviating pain and improving mobility, not curing cancer, or treating the flu. As for the benefits, there are no drugs. Chiropractors are unable to perform surgery and write prescriptions. Your treatment is 100% natural. This is less intimidating and the recovery time is short. There rarely is a recovery period. Continued physical therapy or therapeutic massages may be suggested, but there is never any hospitalization.
