Chiropractic

A form of physical therapy primarily performed with the hands.
Therapy focused on the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the further effects of such disorders on the function of the nervous system and an individual’s general health (WFC Dictionary Definition World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001). Chiropractors are trained in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints including but not restricted to the hip, knee and shoulder. Chiropractic adjustment can help relieve pain and can restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body. Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe clinical exercises and recommend injury prevention strategies. Chiropractors undertake University training consisting of a 3 year Bachelor of Science degree followed by a 2 year Masters of Chiropractic.

The Chiropractic Adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment is a highly specific, quick and small movement applied to a joint of the body.
The adjustment normally releases the joint to restore proper movement and improve function. When the joint is adjusted, a pop or click sound may be heard. After a chiropractic adjustment is performed, temporary soreness can be experienced in the day/s following but is usually minor. Your chiropractor is well-trained to determine if your problem will respond to chiropractic care or if you require help from another health care practitioner.
