|What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic Care is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. The vertebrae, which protect the nervous system, when misaligned or lose its normal motion, causes malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body.
Chiropractic Medicine is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or medicines. Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as chiropractors, are primary health care providers licensed in all 50 states, and are recognized by governmental health care programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Workers' Compensation programs and more. Every year, more than 30 million Americans see chiropractors as part of the regular health care programs and with over 84,000 licensed chiropractors nationwide and more than 10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school, it is the fastest growing health care profession.
Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains. However, the scope of conditions that chiropractors manage or provide care for is not limited to the common pains and problems listed above. Chiropractors also have the training to treat a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, and other disorders as new research is developed.
Look how far chiropractic has come:
Chiropractors are well known for adjusting the spine and restoring alignment to the body. While chiropractors are the spine authorities, they use other methods to treat the body, as well as treating disorders and ailments, which have nothing to do with the spine. Chiropractors seek to understand and treat the patient through a total wellness approach. In addition, recent discoveries in medicine are supporting chiropractic care as an avenue to treat multiple afflictions.
Diet and Nutritional Counseling
In the spirit of a total wellness approach; chiropractors are specifically trained in diet and nutritional counseling. It is no secret that a healthy diet and balanced nutrition are the foundation of good health. Chiropractors design nutritional programs that are specific to your needs. These programs are designed to improve overall health, encourage weight loss, and decrease the effects of chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc. Chiropractors take nutritional counseling a step further than dietitians do as they understand the effect that each nutrient has on the muscles, joints, and limbs.
