Chiropractic care is a drug-free iteration of healthcare that can help you reach your highest level of wellness. While the treatment method is more accessible than it once was, many aren’t clear on the true benefits that you can enjoy when you work with a doctor of chiropractic (DC).
Chiropractic care adopts a total-body approach to healing, allowing you to have a more comprehensive healing process for your health journey — working to address the underlying ailments disrupting your day-to-day life. In this blog, we provide a little more insight into what chiropractic care is and how it can help.
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective method of care that relies on spinal manipulation and other related techniques to address neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are trained to address the root cause of the health problem and rely on a more “whole” approach to your wellbeing. Rather than treat the symptoms, you can expect a more comprehensive care experience as they work to assess the state of your health.
What can doctors of chiropractic do?
Doctors of chiropractic (DC) are physicians. They specialize in the treatment and management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Your doctor of chiropractic (DC) has gone through a minimum of seven years of higher education and can successfully navigate your medical care no matter how complex it may be. Chiropractic care involves manipulation techniques while keeping the end goal in mind — total health and wellness.
What conditions can chiropractic care assist with?
There are two main categories of conditions that chiropractic care can address — acute and chronic.
Acute conditions can represent an initial injury, such as a car accident or trauma. It can also apply to a sudden onset of symptom presentation, even if there was no trauma to precipitate the disruption. Chronic conditions are ongoing conditions that may be attested to chronic illness. In either case, your doctor of chiropractic can assist you in creating a comprehensive care plan that addresses your symptoms, diagnosis and future health.
Adding chiropractic care can help with many aliments. It’s not a substitute for total care but is a great supplemental option. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about how it could benefit you.
