When it comes to paramedical treatments, chiropractic care is often the one that patients are most skeptical about, but also the one they know the least about. There are many myths surrounding chiropractic care which prevent people from seeking treatment; chiropractors aren’t real doctors, they only treat back pain, all they do is crack bones. These common misconceptions alter the way people see chiropractic care and ultimately prevent them from getting a treatment that can reduce pain and treat injury in an effective and timely manner.
Chiropractors treat conditions related to the nervous system, skeletal system and musculoskeletal system and the impact that these conditions can have on overall health and wellbeing. Many people believe that chiropractors only adjust or “crack” the back, however, they use many manual techniques to treat more than just the spine.
What will your treatment look like?
When you go for treatment, a chiropractor will take a medical history but also a lifestyle history. Examining what factors in your daily life could be contributing to your ailments. They will then use a combination of adjustments, massage, muscle stimulation, mobilizations, stretches and lifestyle coaching to assist in your recovery. They will then give you exercises and stretches to perform at home that will assist in your recovery.
Patients experience increased nervous system function, more restful sleep, improved mobility and pain relief, stronger immune function and less need for medications.
