Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical science and as such, does not include pharmaceuticals or invasive surgery.
Chiropractors provide conservative management of pain including, but not limited to back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
This is achieved through chiropractic manipulation or “adjustment'” of the spine or other joints in the body. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore mobility by manually applying a controlled force into a joint or joints that have become hypomobile.
In other words, the joint does not move through its full range of motion. This can be due to trauma, stress or illness. The chiropractic adjustment is used to relieve pain and increase the range of motion.
Chiropractic For Prenatal Care
Chiropractic can also be of great benefit for those experiencing lower back pain during pregnancy. Changes in weight distribution can lead to postural adaptations. This can lead to increased demand and fatigue on spinal and pelvic ligaments as well as changing in spinal curves. This results in increased joint stress, which in turn causes vertebral and sacroiliac joint misalignment. Postural corrections can help reduce muscular and ligamentous stress.
