What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care involves hands-on manipulations from a trained professional. These manipulations can realign the joints and provide pain relief for muscles, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Chiropractic care is often used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment and rehabilitation to produce optimal results. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to align the spine properly and musculoskeletal structure to enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. This practice is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury.
The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care offers patients a wide range of benefits. Those who opt to undergo chiropractic care can expect to reap numerous health-related benefits, even just after a single session. Chiropractic benefits include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Improved neck pain
- Reduced reliance on opioid pain relievers
- Lessened back pain

When To Seek Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care isn’t for everyone, but it poses various health-related benefits worth looking into. If you’re someone who suffers from neck, back, or knee pain, you might benefit from seeing a chiropractor. We recommend that patients interested in pursuing chiropractic care are generally healthy and without advanced joint disease. Chiropractic care may be a useful treatment option if you suffer from one or more of the following:
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Neck pain
- Low energy
- Poor posture
- Restless sleep
Chiropractic Treatment & Rehabilitation
How do you determine which type of therapy is right for you? It depends on the kind of condition you have and your specific needs. Depending on the condition, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and medicine can come together to help relieve pain and improve your quality of life. Talk to your provider when deciding what type of therapy you need. They can advise you and explain how each treatment may help improve your symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment is sometimes referred to as an adjustment. Chiropractors use their hands or a small instrument to apply controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. An adjustment aims to improve spinal motion and improve the body’s physical function. There are several treatment processes and methods, including:
- Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT)
- Thompson (Drop Table)
- Webster Technique
