A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment or manipulation of the spine such as spinal decompression therapy.
Most chiropractors seek to reduce pain and provide relief by improving the functionality of patients as well as to educate them on how they can account for their own health via exercise, ergonomics and other therapies to treat their injuries (such back pain).
Chiropractic is generally categorized as alternative medicine or complementary medicine.
Chiropractors focus on the intimate relationship between the nervous system and spine. In Chiropractic, the belief is that biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the nervous system. For many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
The treatment concept of chiropractic adjustment is to reestablish normal spinal mobility, which in turn alleviates the irritation to the spinal nerve and reestablishes altered reflexes.
Family chiropractors use a variety of non surgical treatments to treat patients with certain types of:
Lower back pain
Leg pain (sciatica)
Car accident injuries
Prenatal, Pediatric and Family treatment and ongoing care
While primarily focusing on treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders, chiropractors are not exclusively limited to problems with the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
When appropriate, chiropractors refer patients to medical doctors or other health practitioners for treatment. Although many people believe chiropractors only work on spine and lower back pain, chiropractic care can cover many advanced conditions. Many chiropractors also have a local referral network or work together with other spine specialists in a multidisciplinary or multispecialty spine clinic.
