Chiropractic is one of the largest growing healthcare professions in the world. It is a healthcare profession that provides a drug-free approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of joint, nerve, and muscle conditions by predominantly treating the joints of the body. Treatment focuses on restoring normal joint movement and positioning to help facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal.
What do chiropractors treat?
Treatments focus on neuromusculoskeletal complaints or problems arising from the joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerves. The most common complaints include, but are not limited to, neck and back pain, sprains and strains, headaches, sports injuries, extremity pain, pregnancy pain, and poor posture.
Is chiropractic safe?
Yes — chiropractors carefully select a technique suited for each patient after taking a detailed history and performing a thorough neurological, muscular, and skeletal examination.
At what age can you be treated?
At any age. Different techniques are used for younger and senior patients. For example, the pressure used to adjust an infant is very similar to the same pressure you use to check a tomato for ripeness.
Do you need a referral to see a chiropractor?
No, you can book directly at the City Chiropractic office.
How much treatment will I need?
This depends on the nature of the injury, how long it has been there, and the individual’s response to treatment. Most patients experience considerable relief of their symptoms in just one treatment but long-term conditions can require more care.
