A drug and surgery free method
Chiropractic is a drug-free, surgery-free form of medicine in which adjustments to the spine and joints are used to restore alignment in order to alleviate pain, regain function, and allow the body to perform its natural ability to heal itself. A Doctor of Chiropractic, or DC, is trained in administering these adjustments for problems most commonly related to the health of the neuromusculoskeletal system. As the ACA (American Chiropractic Association) states, doctors of chiropractic – “often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.”
Chiropractors commonly perform a spinal manipulation, or chiropractic adjustment, as treatment. A chiropractic adjustment is an application of controlled force to a joint area that has become hypomobile; it’s become restricted in its movement. This causes pain, inflammation, and the pathway to arthritis. The name of the game is restored mobility, and that will allow healing and flexibility and alleviation of pain. Chiropractors also treat problems through prescribing rehabilitative exercises, lifestyle changes, and diet improvements. Just like medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic are bound by state laws and licensing boards. A chiropractor will direct you to see another health care provider if he or she determines that chiropractic is not well-suited for your condition, or that the best approach is chiropractic care along with other types of treatment.
Chiropractors are licensed by all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and many nations around the globe educated in 4-year doctoral grad school programs endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education subject to the regulations of state licensing boards required to acquire continuing education (CE) units every year.
