Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body). "Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning "effective treatment by hand." Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment.

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. The nervous system is the master system which controls all other systems of the body, including the glandular, reproductive, digestive, eliminative, respiratory, circulatory and immune systems.

Different Between Chiropractic & Physiotherapy 

Chiropractic is distinct from the other healthcare professions. Medicine and Dentistry are allopathic healthcare systems that use pharmaceuticals (drugs) and surgery to treat diseases. Physiotherapy is a supplementary medical profession concerned with the rehabilitation and treatment of physical disability and bodily malfunctions using physical and mechanical measures.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

 

Manipulation, when carried out by a properly qualified practitioner, is considered to be very safe, as most reactions to chiropractic treatment are physiological in nature and the complication rate of manipulation is low.

 

The most common reactions following chiropractic treatment, which affect 50% of patients, include discomfort in the area treated, headaches, fatigue, and pain radiating from the area treated. These reactions are those to be expected and are mainly physiological in nature
