What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare approach that focuses on the relationship between the spine's vertebrae and overall well-being. Chiropractors recognize that issues like pain and illness can result from misaligned or abnormally moving vertebrae in the spinal column, known as subluxations. Chiropractic treatment aims to correct these subluxations, alleviating pressure on nerves, restoring joint mobility, and promoting the body's return to normal function.

Numerous studies have underscored the effectiveness of chiropractic care in addressing various musculoskeletal problems such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, and sports injuries. Additionally, chiropractic care has shown promise in reducing high blood pressure, lowering the frequency of childhood ear infections, and ameliorating asthma symptoms. Ongoing scientific research reveals the significant negative impact that subluxations can have on the body's tissues. To achieve true health, it's essential for the nervous system to function without interference from subluxations. Chiropractors possess unique expertise in detecting, locating, and correcting the vertebral subluxation complex through chiropractic care.

A fundamental aspect of chiropractic care is chiropractic adjustment, which involves a swift thrust applied to a vertebra to correct its position, movement, or both. Adjustments often produce an audible release of gas, resembling a 'crack' sound. While this sound might initially surprise some individuals, it typically provides relief. In some cases, minor discomfort may occur, particularly if surrounding muscles are tense or the patient tenses up during the procedure. Occasionally, the audible 'cracking' may not occur due to significant muscle tightness or patient difficulty in relaxing during adjustments.

This section includes articles discussing the history of chiropractic, the distinctions between wellness and medical care, and an exploration of what an "adjustment" is and how it is utilized in a chiropractor's practice.
