Some say that the inception of chiropractic care originates back to the Ancient Greeks. Around 2,500 years ago, Hippocrates, known as the father of Modern Medicine, discovered a medical breakthrough – that there was a remarkable nexus between the body and the brain’s nervous system. By performing manual manipulations, Hippocrates would be able to treat spinal column illnesses more rapidly than other medicines. He would say: “Look well to the Spine for the Cause of Disease”. In matters related to spinal injuries, a consensus can be established that Hippocrates was certainly correct.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic Care is a branch of medicine that focuses on the structure and function of the spine along with its relationships amongst the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It is aimed to restore the spine to its proper function by treating disorders with the medical arts of diagnostics and manipulation. Indeed, chiropractors manually manipulate the spine with the application of various spinal adjustments in a safe and efficient manner. Additionally, chiropractors utilize various forms of physical modalities to treat patients of their spinal disorders. Such injuries and ailments that chiropractors treat include:
- Neck and Back Pain
- Traumatic Spinal Injuries
- Fractures in the spinal area
- Sprains / Strains
- Various other Neuromuscular Conditions
Chiropractors conduct spinal manipulations by applying firm pressure with their hands and elbows to realign the spine. With this, the patient experiences pain relief while receiving benefits of reduced subluxation and restored functional movement. Assisted stretching, strengthening and massage are also utilized for patients who suffer from muscle spasm.
