Chiropractic: An Introduction

Chiropractic is a health care approach that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure – mainly the spine – and its functioning. Chiropractors primarily perform spinal adjustments to the spine goal of correcting alignment and problems relating to it supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself and deal with the daily stresses that it encounters. For effective corrective care spinal manipulation will not be enough; the spine must be made ready for changes by warming up and softening tissues around the spine. After this is done spinal manipulation will be far more effective in achieving their intended purpose that then has to be followed by reactive exercises creating a new pattern for the body to hold the spine in correct alignment.

People seek chiropractic care primarily for pain conditions such as backache, lower back pain, neck pain, and headache. Many also seek care for scoliosis with the aim of correcting the spine. Very few side effects have ever been reported and then mostly been temporary muscle soreness related to the treatment making chiropractic a very safe treatment option.

Ongoing research at different universities around the world is looking at effects of chiropractic treatment approaches and validating its claims and results for a wide variety of conditions.
