What Is Chiropratic ?"Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Doctors of Chiropractic often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling." Taken from the American Chiropractic Association.
Chiropratic FAQ'sIs chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic is among the safest of the healing arts. The risk factor is estimated to be less than one million to one.
Does Chiropractic hurt?
Under normal circumstances, adjustments don't hurt. The patient may experience a minor amount of discomfort during the adjustment and some minor soreness for a day afterward.
Is it bad to "crack" your own neck or back?
The desire to pop the neck or back is caused by tension from a jammed or fixated vertebra, which can cause another part of the spine to compensate too much by making a "popping" sound. The jammed part of the spine should be adjusted by a chiropractor so that the spinal column will be balanced and stop being so noisy.
Am I adjusting myself by cracking my own neck or back?
No you are not adjusting yourself, you are merely giving yourself temporary relief, because the cause of the spinal tension has not been corrected!
