The chiropractic field has grown in recent years due to its focus on expanding treatment for a variety of different health concerns.
For those who are unsure of what a chiropractor does, a chiropractors name derives from the Greek words, ‘cheir’ and ‘praktikos’ which means hand and done which together translates as, done by hand. That definition alone shows just how in tune and committed your chiropractor is to treat your condition as they are ready to do the hard work needed to get you feeling your best.
The Chiropractic Process
In order to reach your optimal spine health, your chiropractor will perform adjustments to correct misalignments or subluxations. Chiropractors treat conditions that are related to the musculoskeletal system such as the bones, muscles and joints.
In addition to providing these spinal manipulations, chiropractors will also educate their patients on exercises they can perform at home to increase the strength in their muscles, bones, and joints. Exercise won’t win the fight alone though, proper nutrition is also important and our Atlanta chiropractors will work with you to develop the best dietary plan to fit your lifestyle.
Custom Treatment Plans For Each Patient
As each patient’s needs are different, chiropractors can perform many different techniques and create individualized treatment plans to help suit each patient. Some patients may seek out chiropractic care for pain management while others may seek care for other conditions. One important beneficial aspect of chiropractic care is that chiropractic care is not a one size fits all approach, each approach or technique can be modified based on a person’s physical condition, age, or other health needs.
Chiropractic Works For Everyone
Chiropractic care is not limited to adults as children and teens can find great relief from increased pressure but on their bodies. Children now are carrying heavier backpacks, sitting for long periods of time, overusing electronic devices which is causing a slump in their posture, as well as other spine- straining activities.
For those young adult athletes, they may seek a different type of chiropractic care as their bodies have an added stress that their peers may not. Seeking chiropractic care for children and teens can help promote a healthy spine into their adult life.
Each stage in life may require a different type of approach from the last, as adults may not need the same type of adjustments as a growing child or a pregnant mother may not need the same time of care as an elderly woman. Each stage faces a different type of stress on the spine and chiropractors will fine tune an approach to fit each stage accordingly.
