What are Chiropractors?

What are Chiropractors?

A chiropractor is a doctor, which primarily focuses on the spine. They specialize in holistic, non surgical approaches, to not only determining the cause of back pain, but also treating the pain a patient is suffering from.

Chiropractors focus on the connection between the nervous system and the spine. The belief is that when the spine is misaligned, it can cause pain, and affect the nervous system. Regular visits to your Davie chiropractor office, can help reduce this pain and swelling, and help realign the spine. Different techniques used help reduce pressure on the lower vertebrate, improve function of the spine, and restore balance to the nervous system.

Chiropractic adjustment –
One of the most common reasons for a visit to a chiropractor’s office, is for a spinal readjustment. The procedure simply involves stretching the spinal joint, in the ares where it has to be adjusted, and aligned. Joint popping is commonly heard during this process. Manual manipulation of the spine, will help realign the spine, and eliminate pain that the patient is experiencing.

How many adjustments are required? –
For some patients, you may only require one adjustment. If you slept poorly overnight, and this created minor deviation in the spine’s alignment, a single treatment may be suitable. For others, if you were involved in a car accident, or major sports injury, continual treatment and visits may be required. Depending on how poorly aligned the spine is at the first visit, and how much of an imbalance there is between the spine, and nervous system function, your Davie chiropractor will determine the number of sessions required, to treat the pain.

Visiting the chiropractor is not only going to help with pain management, but will help properly balance your system. When the nervous system is not functioning normally, you are going to continually feel an imbalance.

Chiropractic Visits

Chiropractic Visits

Although a visit to a chiropractor involves the same elements which can be expected when seeing general physicians, there is big difference regarding the treatment. It is considered a specialty and makes use of alternative healing methods. In essence a chiropractor focuses on aligning the spinal cord because it helps the body to naturally heal, however the treatment does include other methods as well.

The first visit entails an interview, mainly based on medical history and conditions. Typically it takes about 40 minutes and other questions like job requirements, family history or any complaints will also be asked. This is followed by a physical examination which gives the chiropractor an idea of how the muscles, nerves and spinal joints work individually and in conjunction with each other. It isn’t uncommon for orthopedic or neurological tests to be done as well and if deemed necessary the patient might be sent for x-rays. To complete the evaluation blood pressure is recorded, the lungs are listened to and the abdomen is examined.

Like mentioned before, the spinal area is the focus point simply because it connects everything and is structured in a very complex way, therefore it’s the most important part of the examination. After the chiropractor is satisfied with the evaluation a step by step discussion will take place with the patient, explaining everything in detail and what steps should be taken. If the specialty of another doctor is needed then it will be advised seeing as the patient’s health comes first.

The great thing about this alternative healing is the natural way it approaches a problem. Without making use of surgery or excessive medication; a plan will be constructed about self-treatment the patient can do at home and dietary suggestions might also be made. The treatment is very effective against acute pain which can suddenly occur during a certain action like moving furniture. In addition it can relieve neck, back and other physical pain brought on by injury.

Don’t be hesitant to do some research before making an appointment. Finding great and professional help like that of Davie Chiropractor, a well-known expert in the field, can really help to ease pain in a more natural way. All the above mentioned services come standard and every patient utilizing his practice will find satisfaction. The spinal cord is a very sensitive area and the last thing anybody wants is a knife cutting close to it. With a chiropractor there is no need for such extremities.
