A note about About Chiropractic Care Treatment
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
Choosing a professional chiropractor
After deciding to go ahead with chiropractic treatment, it is important to discuss this with your primary care physician or healthcare provider. Once the clearance is given it is advisable to short-list names of all available chiropractic physicians in one?s area or preference.
This can be followed by confirming details regarding their experience, licenses, credentials educational qualifications, and certifications. Chiropractors are permitted to practice only in States where they have a valid license. One can always confirm or find out more about chiropractors on the internet or through references and based on all of the above, the decision can be finalized.
Chiropractic Care Treatment Consultation
The first consultation with a chiropractor will involve describing the nature of the pain or problem, signs, symptoms, and the entire history of the problem. The next step will include physical examination, especially of the spine.
Depending on the requirement, x-rays might be requested. Based on all the above and the x-ray, the chiropractor will go ahead and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Succeeding consultations with chiropractors will include gentle and mild form of maneuvering techniques or adjustments to the spine and other affected areas. While most of the adjustment is performed at the spine level, manipulation or maneuvering might be extended to certain joint regions in an attempt to increase the range of motion.
In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractic care treatments might also include the use of electrical stimulation, heat and ice treatment, tips on exercise, nutrition, vitamin supplements, rest, etc.
Side Effects and Dangers of Chiropractic Care
While there are no major side effects to chiropractic care treatment, there are a few risks depending on the nature of chiropractic treatment.
Some patients have reported temporary discomfort in areas which underwent chiropractic treatment. Quite a few have experienced mild headaches and feeling tired following treatment.
However, chances of major complications like stroke are extremely rare.
Certain nutritional and dietary supplements prescribed might, sometimes, react or interfere with any regular medication the patient is already taking. Hence, it is important to inform the chiropractor of any medication the patient is taking at the time of treatment.
