Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders have on general health. Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.
Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are specially trained in manipulation of the spine and extremities, as well as recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises. Chiropractors provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, diagnostic imaging, laboratory testing and other diagnostic methods.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint function by manually applying a controlled force into joints to restore normal alignment and movement. Diagnosis and treatment is not limited to spinal conditions. Chiropractic doctors are often consulted for conditions of the extremities including, but not limited to, the shoulders, hips, feet and knees. A chiropractic treatment program may include manipulation, deep tissue techniques, application of kinesio-tape, instrument assisted soft tissue and/or manipulation.
Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition or the condition warrants co-management with other members of the health care team.
