What Exactly is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a regulated health care profession that focuses on spinal, muscular, and joint pain or injuries. Every muscle, organ and tissue in your body is impacted by your nervous system. If there is interference to the normal function of your nervous system, then your spine, musculoskeletal system and the rest of your body is negatively impacted and you will likely feel pain or discomfort.

It focuses on restoring normal movement, relieving pain and maintaining the health of your joints, muscles and nerves. Depending on your condition, the chiropractor may manipulate parts of your spine or other joints and offer a range of supplementary treatment techniques including stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and advice on lifestyle and nutrition.

What Does A Chiropractor Do?

Chiropractors are doctors who specialize in the care of the musculoskeletal system. They use hands-on techniques (manual adjustments), such as adjusting vertebrae (spinal bones) and applying pressure to specific areas of the back for pain relief and improved function. X-rays and scans are used to identify problems, and treatment plans are developed to address these issues. Chiropractors often recommend massage therapy to relax muscles before and after treatments.
The most common treatments used by chiropractors include adjusting the spine, massage therapy, exercise programs, and nutritional counselling.


What Happens During A Chiropractic Treatment?

Our chiropractor will assess your spine and joints by looking at your posture, range of motion, muscle tone, and neurological function. They may recommend exercises to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. If necessary they may adjust vertebrae (spinal bones) using techniques like traction, manipulation, and massage.


What Chiropractic Techniques Do We Perform?

Flexion Distraction

Flexion distraction tables are used to help the spine to relax. Patients use them to reduce pain and increase flexibility. These tables are designed to be used by people who have osteoporosis or arthritis.
This technique involves using a gentle-spring-loaded adjusting instrument. It is used on infants, the elderly, and smaller joints of the jaw and feet. Applied Kinesiology is used to diagnose your structural, chemical, or mental aspects of health.


Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments involve manipulating vertebrae that have limited range of motion. The technique is called High-Velocity Low-Amplitude (HVLA). Gas bubbles trapped in the joints are released to relieve pressure and improve movement, resulting in the popping sound.
In addition, manual adjustments may also be helpful in cases of neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, and issues affecting the lower extremities. Chiropractic adjustments work by sending electrical impulses to the nerves and muscles. These impulses prompt the body to secrete natural painkillers to help reduce pain. You’ll experience a very light tingleshion when the pads are applied.


Graston Technique

Freedom Physical may also incorporate Graston Technique treatment as part of chiropractic care. Soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization refers to this technique. Chiropractic care increases soft-tissue function and reduces pain in specific soft-tissue areas by using special tools and emollients. Soft tissue injuries can be reduced by breaking down fascial adhesions and reducing scar tissue. In addition, the technique involves stretching the connective tissue to help it become more flexible.

As a result of the technique, the nerve fibers in the tissues are stimulated, offering neurological benefits. Graston Technique may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments. You may also employ the Graston Technique just before an adjustment in order to address muscle hypertonicity and allow the adjustment to last longer.
