Chiropractic Care Q&A

by Robert Moses, DC

What Does Chiropractic Care Do?

Chiropractic care is designed to help a person heal themselves naturally. The human body has the ability to do so in many cases, but often a spinal misalignment is interfering with the healing. The chiropractic care provider will use both traditional and cutting edge chiropractic care techniques to help the patient feel better, now and in the future.

What is a Spinal Misalignment?

A spinal misalignment, also called a subluxation, happens when there are improperly aligned vertebrae in the neck or the back. This improper alignment can result in many different problems and health concerns. While the degree of the spinal misalignment can range from tiny to major, the impact that it has on the body can be significant. Patients with spinal misalignment may have not only pain but also fatigue, depression, and other symptoms if the misalignment is not corrected.

Why do Subluxations Occur?

Subluxations happen for a wide range of reasons. Sometimes an accident is the cause, for example, an auto accident. In other cases, the spinal misalignment is the result of repeated stress on the back, such as constantly lifting heavy weights. Subluxations can also happen with much less impact. For example, a person can slip and fall, then end up with a spinal misalignment. Children sometimes develop spinal misalignments when they are learning to walk as toddlers since the process involves a lot of falling.

Who is a Good Candidate for Chiropractic Care?

One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic care is that it is appropriate for nearly everyone. Chiropractic care does not involve medication or any invasive procedures, so it is considered a natural healing method that can benefit virtually anyone of any age. Children can benefit from chiropractic, as can elderly people. Even pregnant women often have chiropractic adjustments today.
