Chiropractic care is a multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare that uses physical exam, diagnostic imaging, and hands-on treatment to improve & treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
One of the most common misconceptions about chiropractic care is that practitioners simply "whack 'em and crack 'em" to treat pain. In reality, chiropractors use multiple treatment strategies to localize and treat patient's musculoskeletal complaints. At Alternative Healing Chiropractic, some of the treatment techniques we use include
Manual spinal manipulation
Low-impact adjustments with adjuvant tools
Rehabilitative exercises & stretches that can be incorporated at home
Chiropractic care is centered around the concept that the body has the capacity to heal itself. Therefore, it is generally a medication-free approach to pain, and chiropractors do not write prescription medications.
For some patients, especially those with back & neck pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. However, many patients have other medical conditions beyond pain. In these instances, chiropractic care can complement or support medical treatment by improving the musculoskeletal dysfunction associated with the condition.
