Some chiropractors believe in removal of subluxations, of a particular location along the spine, only, and they are called 'straight' chiropractors. The logic they work on is that once subluxations are removed the body will naturally revitalize itself. Other category of chiropractors is called 'mixers' because they mix their practice with other forms of health care like physical therapy, exercise programs and nutrition. They do this to give holistic care for the body.
The chiropractor decides on the type of care and method of treatment for his patients after discussing about the other medical conditions that the patient may have had. There are three main kinds of chiropractic care:
Relief Chiropractic Care
This is to help immediate relief needed for acute pain and discomfort when a patient is in a lot of pain. The frequency of visits are determined by the amount of damage that needs to be corrected.
Chiropractic Care- Corrective
This type of care program is used for spine problems that have been there for a number of years and have deteriorated over the years, because of lack of correct treatment. This type of care requires long term treatment.
Maintenance Chiropractic Care
Many patients due to permanent spinal weakness from old injuries once they have relief from the problem and the pain, still need to have regular checkups with the chiropractor to ensure that you remain healthy. Usually these treatments are once every 2 to 6 weeks.
In chiropractic care body's internal immune systems are used to provide healing to the patient. Usually spinal problems can create havoc with the patient's nerves and cells. With chiropractic treatment the intent is to heal not only the spine but rather the whole body to ensure the complete function of the body.
Chiropractic care is the most recommended form of alternative medicine. It is based on the belief that certain conditions are caused by impairment of your nervous system due to problems in your joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones. While chiropractors do not use drugs or surgery, they sometimes do refer patients for medical care
when they believe it is necessary.
Chiropractic care is safe and natural helping the body to draw upon its own restorative capabilities to heal. It teaches patients how to take control of their own health and avoid chronic pain. It also can help prevent problems before they start or get worse.
