It is a known fact that Chiropractors are the most effective at treating neck and back pain and it is for this reason that hospitals and numerous other medical specialists are now working with Chiropractors to get the best care for their patients.
As Chiropractors are primary health care practitioners one does not need to be referred to a Chiropractor by another doctor.
Chiropractic 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 functions of the nervous system and general health.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by a Chiropractor is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment”. A Chiropractic adjustment is a manual procedure that uses highly refined skills developed during the intensive years of chiropractic education. The technique involves the chiropractor applying thrusts of varying speed and forces to joints in the body, particularly the spine in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function. A chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort.
