What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the Science, Art and Philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration of good health by restoring and maintaining a properly functioning nervous system, without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism.
These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunctioning of the tissues and organs throughout the body.
Doctors of Chiropractic call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. The chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, boost the immune system, and remove nerve irritation. Once this nervous irritation is removed, your body is able to do what it is designed to do – heal itself.
Chiropractors help in restoring nervous system function. Many chiropractors also focus on the biomechanics of the body such as joint motion. Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history.
Your case study history is vital, as it reveals the background about your health such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, and other details, which brought you to visit us. After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed.
Once the examination is complete, your chiropractor will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. Progress is monitored with a periodic examination and follow-up reports.
Diversified Technique is the classic chiropractic technique, developed by D.D. Palmer, DC. The focus is on restoration to normal biomechanical function, and correction of subluxation. In addition, the technique can be used to adjust the extremities. Motion palpation and full spine, hands-on techniques are used to deliver a thrust, which may make an osseous popping sound as the adjustment is given.
Activator is light non-forceful chiropractic adjustment, developed by W.C. Lee D.C. and A.W. Fuhr D.C., which uses an activator instrument. The instrument controls the force and speed of the adjustment. A leg test is also utilized to tell the doctor if a subluxation is present.
The patient lies on a special table with sections that drop down. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the section drops. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that can accompany other techniques.
