What Does A Chiropractor Do?
Doctors of Chiropractic work with the bones of the back, neck, and other joints in the body, such as the knees, hips and shoulders. They use their hands to locate locked up vertebrae (spinal bones) that put pressure on the nerves, irritate muscles, and other parts of the body, and result in reduced overall health and performance. This is called a subluxation.
After locating the subluxation, the Chiropractor uses various highly specialized techniques called spinal "adjustments" to restore motion to the joints and thus release pressure on the nerves, relieving pain and improving performance and health. With each adjustment your body is beginning its re-education process. From this moment on, a healthier spine and nervous system and an improved quality of life is within your reach!
Is Chiropractic Safe?
Chiropractic is among the safest of the healing arts. As proof one merely has to compare malpractice rates between Chiropractors and other health professionals. Chiropractors malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors, especially orthopedists and surgeons.
Doctors of Chiropractic have the most extensive education and practical experience of all doctors in performing spinal treatments (adjustments) to relieve nerve pressure. Chiropractors receive an average of 563 total hours of formal education on how to make exact adjustments. Doctors of Osteopathy receive an average of 146 hours, while medical doctors and physical therapists receive no formal training on spinal adjustments.
Chiropractors also receive two to three times the formal classroom training of medical doctors in diagnosis, neurology and x-rays.
