Chiropractic services provide effective therapy for neuromusculoskeletal problems using noninvasive manipulation and manual adjustments to realign your body and relieve the accompanying pain and discomfort. Chiropractic is frequently the primary treatment approach for many musculoskeletal conditions.
When you attend a chiropractic treatment session at Taylor Family Practice, your practitioner uses their hands, or in some cases, a chiropractic tool, to administer adjustments to your body. The adjustments feel like a series of light taps or pushes, and they’re swift and precise, aimed at exactly the right point to effectively realign the target area.
Chiropractors don’t qualify in the same way as medical doctors, although many chiropractors are also medically qualified. Licensed chiropractors use the post-nominals DC, which stands for Doctor of Chiropractic.
Qualification as a chiropractor entails four years of doctoral study in a graduate school accredited by the United States Department of Education. On completion, graduates must then pass national board examinations to obtain a license to practice.
There are several forms of chiropractic technique, any of which may be used according to the needs of the patient and the treatment site. The diversified chiropractic technique is a hands-on form of manipulation with which you may be familiar, where you lay on a treatment table while your practitioner performs the adjustments.
The activator technique is similar to the diversified technique. However, your doctor uses an activator adjusting instrument to perform the adjustments instead of using a hands-on approach. The Thompson technique uses the same form of manipulation as the diversified technique, but in this technique, you lay on a chiropractic drop table to allow your doctor easier access to the treatment area.
Chiropractors are highly qualified clinicians with specialist expertise in relieving musculoskeletal pain, and their treatment aims to reduce and dispel pain. As long as you’re attending a licensed chiropractic session at a reputable clinic such as Taylor Family Practice, you shouldn’t experience too much discomfort.
You may feel pain during the examination as your doctor establishes precisely where the pain is and what’s causing it, but they take care to minimize your discomfort. The manipulation may feel odd at first, and you may feel a little tired and sore afterward, but this is a result of the tissues in your body being realigned.
After a few days, the tissues adapt to their adjustment, and you’ll be able to enjoy the effects of your treatment to the full. To feel the difference that chiropractic services make to aches and pains, make an appointment to visit Taylor Family Practice by calling the clinic or booking online.
