What is Chiropractic Medicine?

According to the World Federation of Chiropractic, chiropractic medicine is:

“A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.”

When Should You See A Chiropractor?

The most common health issue people will see a chiropractor about is known as vertebral subluxation. This is caused by several phenomena, including:

  • Out of place vertebra, or misalignment, occurring after a slip or fall
  • Spinal misalignment due to bad posture
  • Swollen joints caused by damage to the intervertebral joint
  • Inflammatory bodily responses caused by psychological stress or poor diet choices
  • Degenerative changes or osteoporosis of the intervertebral disks or spine
  • Tight back muscles that can pull vertebrae out of place.

There are many possible symptoms of vertebral subluxation, including the below. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact me as soon as you can:

  • Tightness, spasms of the spinal muscles
  • Balance issues or dizziness
  • Tingling, numbness or pain in hands and feet
  • Reduced spinal mobility
  • Stiffness or pain in joints
