CHIROPRACTIC – HOW IS IT PERFORMED AND HOW SAFE IS IT?

The term ‘Chiropractic adjustment’ refers to the specific manipulation Chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function properly, otherwise known as a subluxation. Specific spinal adjustments or spinal corrections are the specialty of Chiropractors. There are more than 20 adjusting systems utilized in Chiropractic today. Each system has a specific adjusting procedure to restore the spine to normal function. This reduces the negative neurologic impact, and returns the body to more normal efficiency. Spinal adjustments, regardless of which system is utilized, are tailored to the patient’s age and spinal condition.

Technically, chiropractic analysis utilizes x-ray examination for visual assessment of the subluxated spine, to detect any possible contraindications to spinal adjustments, and to rule out bone disease or spinal pathologies. This clinic uses state-of-the-art noninvasive testing called an Surface Electromyographic Analysis (or SEMG). As nerve control the muscles of your spine, the SEMG will measure how well the motor nerves are working by reading the amount of current found in the muscles. This technology will objectively help to detect areas or nerve disturbance, muscle imbalance and postural disturbance and will help to document and monitor your results.

Furthermore, chiropractic on the other hand is widely recognized as one of the safest and most effective therapies for musculoskeletal conditions. In the words of the New Zealand government’s inquiry, Chiropractic care is “remarkably safe.” Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs, given the fact that medicine and prescription drugs are the number on cause of death in America and the third leading cause of death in Australia (behind heart disease and cancer).

Chiropractic is the largest non-surgical, non-drug prescribing primary contact health profession in the world. Chiropractic avoids drugs and invasive procedures and has an excellent safety record. In relation to the treatment of neck and back pain, studies have shown that a course of chiropractic care was 250 times safer than a course of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although chiropractic care has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are extremely small. To put things in perspective, you have a greater chance of being injured in a car accident than from your chiropractic care. Nonetheless, chiropractic is safe and may assist in a wide range of conditions such as:

1. Pregnancy

2. Osteoporosis

3. Rheumatoid arthritis

4. Cancer

5. Disc injuries

6. Whiplash injuries

7. Spinal fractures

8. Strains and Sprains

9. Headache, etc.
