What Does A Chiropractor Really Do?
We’re frequently asked questions by our many clients and we think this is because Chiropractic treatment has traditionally been very poorly explained. Most of us have experienced back or neck pain at some point in our lives, so lets use this as an example.
- When a spinal or extremity joint is injured it’s movement may become restricted. In Chiropractic we refer to this as joint fixation.
- This process sends pain signals to the brain telling it that something is wrong and causes compensatory changes in surrounding soft tissues including muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia.
- You may then experience signs or symptoms such as muscle tightness, generalized stiffness, swelling & referred nerve pain.
- Multi-modal Chiropractors then apply various treatment techniques in order to reduce symptoms which someone my be suffering from and rehabilitate their problem.
