What Chiropractors Do?
Chiropractors approach patient care in a uniquely specific manner. They interview the patient, obtain a detailed health history, and perform an evaluation of the spine. The purpose of the the chiropractic encounter is to develop and relationship between the cause and effect of the patient's condition. They then develop a care plan and monitor the patient’s progress over time. Chiropractors often treat problems related to the nervous, muscular, and/or skeletal systems.
The manual methods used by chiropractors range from stretching and sustained pressure to specific joints, which are usually delivered by hand and involve a quick and gentle thrust. The purpose of the adjustments is to improve joint motion, function, and alignment of the vertebral column.
