Introduction to Chiropractic
The field of chiropractic began all the way back in 1895. The word 'Chiropractic' is derived from Greek terminology and means 'to treat by hand.' Chiropractic care focuses on conservative, non-invasive treatment for joint and soft tissue problems and their associated effects on the neurological system. Neurological 'irritation' caused by such problems can lead to anything from pain and dysfunction to headaches to organ problems. Joint and soft tissue problems, if left untreated, can ultimately lead to degenerative changes. The main job of the chiropractor is to identify the cause of the problem, address it properly, and educate the patient so as to reduce the need for continued care.
The field of chiropractic has evolved much over the last 117 years and this is a great thing! Chiropractic care, if properly applied, incorporates the best of treatments for joint, muscle, fascia, and ligament dysfunction to help you get better as quickly as possible. More educated chiropractors implement rehabilitative protocols to help patients 'hold' their treatments for longer periods of time.
