Chiropractic Care Q & A

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Contrary to depictions on TV or in the movies, chiropractors don’t just crack backs. They are highly-trained specialists in the biomechanical and structural misalignments of the spine, which are responsible for a wide array of musculoskeletal and neurological problems. Chiropractors remedy these issues by using their hands to manipulate soft tissue and make spinal adjustments and to restore and maintain proper alignment in the body. The term “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (practice). In addition to performing manual manipulations and adjustments, Dr. Swanson uses several other modalities to provide non-invasive, drug-free relief from musculoskeletal and neurological issues. These include Kinesio-Taping, traction therapy, trigger-point therapy, Activator Therapy, Graston Technique and ergonomic and nutritional advice.

Chiropractic treatment not only offers effective relief from symptoms but also the underlying causes of a long list of problems. Among the most common are:

– Lower back pain
– Neck pain and whiplash
– Strains and sprains
– Headaches
– Sports injuries
– Arthritic pain
– Car accident injuries
– Sciatica
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Shoulder pain
– Knee pain
– Osteoarthritis
– Fibromyalgia

Chiropractic care is natural and doesn’t entail the potential side effects that can accompany prescription medications or the extended downtime involved with surgery. In addition, chiropractic treatments address the underlying problem, not just the symptoms.

A personal reference from a friend or your primary care physician is always a good place to start. Next, confirm that the referral is a graduate of a college that’s accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education. After that, inquire about the chiropractor’s experience within the particular issue you are seeking treatment for. Once these parameters are established, choose someone whom you feel comfortable with. Make sure that he or she listens to your concerns and is willing to answer your questions.
