It is a hands-on treatment that addresses pain or pathology coming from your muscles, joints and/or nerves.Chiropractors use the best available evidence and clinical expertise to diagnose issues that affect your body’s movement. They treat them without medication or surgery and prevent them from returning. Chiropractic care can also promote health and improve your quality of life, as well as alleviate pain.
The most common chiropractic treatment is the chiropractic adjustment. It is a high velocity, low-amplitude thrust applied to joints that are restricted in motion. This technique is used to increase/restore range of motion at the joint. Chiropractors are most well-known for applying this to the spine.
