Chiropractic is a specialized form of conservative care in which the Doctor of Chiropractic delivers specific, high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) manipulations, also called adjustments.
These adjustments aid in achieving optimal function of the musculoskeletal system which is made up of , muscles, and joints, tendons and ligaments. Chiropractic is different from other forms of care in that it uses no pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgical procedures. Rather, it focuses on determining the cause of symptoms like pain and correcting it to facilitate the body’s own healing and recovering abilities.
A Chiropractor is well versed in the anatomy and physiology of the human body. In fact, most Chiropractic students will spend the same amount of time in lectures and laboratories studying anatomy, physiology, and neurology as a medical intern would. And while a physician will spend countless hours honing his or her skills with various surgical procedures, Chiropractors train to become adept at delivering specific spinal and extremity manipulations also known as “adjustments”.
There is strong evidence supporting a variety of conservative treatments known as manual therapies used for the successful treatment of soft tissue injuries and dysfunction.
