Chiropractor in Thornhill
What is Chiropractic? Chiropractic is a regulated health care profession that emphasizes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine and the nervous system. Chiropractic Care is most often used to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints such as neck pain, back pain, joint pain and headaches.
Chiropractors have a very extensive diagnostic skillset and are trained to provide a diagnosis after completing a thorough history and physical examination of their patient. Chiropractors will provide a comprehensive treatment plan based on their findings that may include spinal manipulation, rehabilitative and therapeutic exercises, nutrition and dietary counseling and other non-invasive, drug-free therapies.
What is a Spinal Manipulation? A spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment, which it is more commonly referred to as, is a manual procedure whereby the Chiropractor provides a very controlled force to a joint that is restricted or is not moving properly. The purpose of this manipulation is to restore mobility and return function to the joint. An adjustment is also helpful in alleviating pain and reducing muscle tightness and allowing injured tissues to heal.
A Chiropractic Adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, some patients may complain of mild soreness and achiness after a treatment which usually resolves in 12-48 hours. Some people may ask what is that “cracking’ noise they hear during an adjustment. Simply put, that noise is an exchange of gases within the joint complex itself that results in an audible sound. No bones are breaking!!
