Types of Chiropractic Care


There are different types of chiropractic care for different ailments, for example chiropractic care for back and neck problems or care for general health. Just like going to a specialist doctor for an ailment, there are specialist chiropractors for different conditions.  Chiropractors are concerned not just with the spine but your whole body.

Subluxation is a condition when the vertebrae of the spine get misaligned, thereby causing nerve irritation. This misalignment can be anywhere along the whole spine and not just in the lower back. Chiropractic care is all about setting right the subluxations. This misalignment of the vertebrae puts pressure on nerves leading to and from the brain. A chiropractor helps to put the misaligned vertebrae back in their place by using highly skilled adjustments, gently.

Some chiropractors believe in removal of subluxations, of a particular location along the spine, only, and they are called ~straight~ chiropractors. The logic they work on is that once subluxations are removed the body will naturally revitalize itself. Other category of chiropractors is called ~mixers~ because they mix their practice with other forms of health care like physical therapy, exercise programs and nutrition. They do this to give holistic care for the body.

You will have to undergo a full medical examination by the chiropractor initially and then a complete analysis of your condition. After which the chiropractor will take in the full case history, information about any other disease that you have and then only will he decide on your line of treatment. Chiropractic care has three basic forms:

Relief Chiropractic Care

This is to help immediate relief needed for acute pain and discomfort when a patient is in a lot of pain. The frequency of visits are determined by the amount of damage that needs to be corrected.

Chiropractic Care- Corrective

As compared to Relief Chiropractic Care the Corrective Chiropractic Care is more of a long term treatment in which the results appear only after a period of time. This kind of treatment is mainly taken for those patients who are suffering from spinal problems that have taken place over a long time. Very often, the patient going for long time without medical attention.

Chiropractic Care - Maintenance

This kind of chiropractic care is needed for patients with permanent spinal weakness and need constant check ups. Other patients who have had relief from earlier ailments,  but see the chiropractor for regular check ups to ensure their future health and comfort. Usually this kind of treatment requires a visit every 2 to 6 weeks.

Chiropractic care involves the whole health of the body. Treatments involve using the internal healing systems in the body to relieve the spinal problems that can interfere with the nerves and cells. Therefore, receiving chiropractic treatments is a way of ensuring that every part of body is functioning as it should.

Chiropractic care is a popular and recommended form of alternative medicine. The treatment is based on the premise that all ailments occur because of some blockage in the nervous system due to problems in your bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, vertebrae etc. Chiropractors do not use or recommend surgery or drugs, but they do refer patients to medical practitioners when ever required.

Chiropractic care is safe and natural helping the body to draw upon its own restorative capabilities to heal. It teaches patients how to take control of their own health and avoid chronic pain. It also can help prevent problems before they start or get worse.
