What is Chiropractic?
WHAT DO CHIROPRACTORS DO?
Have you ever seen videos of Chiropractors adjusting people on social media or YouTube and thought, “what is it actually doing?”. Keep reading and hopefully you can get a better idea of what Chiropractic is, and how we can get you feeling better.
Chiropractors focus on the bones and joints of your spine and pelvis. Chiropractors work to identify and correct “misalignments” of the spinal joints, which can cause many problems including pain, inflammation, muscle tightness and can even affect our nervous system.
WHAT IS A "MISALIGNED" JOINT?
A “Vertebral Subluxation Complex” is a misalignment of a vertebral joint within the spine or pelvis that causes a loss of movement and function within that particular joint. This can cause symptoms of pain including inflammation, increased muscle tension, and can interfere with your nervous system.
HOW DO CHIROPRACTORS HELP?
Hopefully you understand a little better what a “Vertebral Subluxation Complex” is and how it can affect pain, inflammation and even our nervous system. So.. how can a Chiropractor help with my back pain or neck pain?
Chiropractic treatment involves specific chiropractic adjustments or manipulations of “vertebral subluxations”. This painless procedure helps restore proper function and movement within the affected joints that are causing your symptoms.
HOW DO CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS HELP?
Chiropractic adjustments work to free up the affected joints that are otherwise stuck and causing you pain. Depending on the technique used, you may hear a “click” or “crack” which signifies the release of nitrogen gas from the target joint.
We use many different types of specific chiropractic manipulation techniques to suit all body types, ages and preferences. For more information regarding the specific manipulation techniques Dr. Daniel Pica uses, click here.
