WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC ?
Chiropractor is a health care professional that focuses on disorders
of the synovial joints and other
most common therapeutic procedure performed by a Chiropractor is
known as “spinal manipulation,” or a “chiropractic
adjustment”. A Chiropractic adjustment is a manual procedure that
uses highly refined skills developed during the intensive years of
chiropractic education. The technique involves the chiropractor
applying thrusts of varying speed and forces to synovial
The chiropractic adjustment is often described as a “cracking” or “popping” sound. The “popping” or “cracking” noise that is often heard is simply gas bubbles being released due to a change of pressure within the joint. There is no pain involved. Patients often note positive changes in their body following the treatment. The best way to describe it is when you open a coke bottle for the first time you get that release of gas, as it moves from a high pressure area to a low pressure area. That is the same as the “popping” or “cracking” noise after an adjustment. This sound has nothing to do with the quality of the adjustment.
WHY SHOULD YOU SEE A CHIROPRACTOR TODAY?
An everyday action or exposure to physical, chemical and/or emotional stresses, can cause any of your movable vertebrae to lose its normal motion. This causes the joint to become jammed, leading to irritation of both the joint and its nerve and other surrounding structures such as muscle. Both the nerve and trigger point formation within the muscle can cause pain within the vicinity and refer elsewhere.
So anyone can suffer from such pain syndromes, therefore anyone of all ages can benefit from Chiropractic care!
