Chiropractors have the ability to provide an appropriate treatment plan to complement the patient’s complaints.
Chiropractic treatment is one of the largest health care professions in Canada. Chiropractors perform a drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints, and their effect on the nervous system.
The most common form of treatment used by chiropractors is a manual adjustment; also known as spinal manipulative therapy. This is a non-invasive method that helps decrease pain in the spine and joints where movement is limited. It also helps decrease muscle tightness or spasms by restoring the natural function of the spine, extremities, and supporting soft tissue structures.
Chiropractic treatment may improve the patient’s general well-being by treating the musculoskeletal elements of disorders such as chronic pain. In this regard, chiropractors have the ability to provide an appropriate treatment plan to complement the patient’s complaints.
