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.
