Chiropractics treat and diagnose disorders of the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system and their effects on general health. In addition, chiropractors treat various conditions relating to the musculoskeletal system, including headaches, neck pain, and back pain.
You may benefit from chiropractic care if you suffer from aching joints or muscle pain, making it difficult to get through the day or preventing you from performing your favourite activities. However, even if there are no painful symptoms, it can help maintain a healthy spine and joint function.
Lower back pain is commonly treated with chiropractic adjustments, such as chiropractic manipulations or manual or spinal manipulations.
A chiropractic adjustment is a technique in which trained specialists apply controlled, sudden pressure to spinal joints using their hands or a small tool. This medical procedure results in improved spinal motion and improved physical function.
Chiropractic adjustments involve manipulating vertebrae that have abnormal movements or don’t function normally. During this chiropractic treatment, the subluxation is reduced, the range of motion is increased, nerve irritability is decreased, and the joint function is improved.
Adjustments are usually painless. Despite a few pops and cracks, there shouldn’t be any intense pain. In most cases, you won’t experience pain after an adjustment if you weren’t in pain beforehand. Occasionally, chiropractic patients experience mild soreness or minor aches after their visit.
The first time a patient undergoes chiropractic treatment, they may involuntarily stiffen up or resist the adjustment, causing them to feel a bit of discomfort until they are relaxed. Additionally, patients who have experienced whiplash may experience mild discomfort from inflammation resulting from the trauma. However, following the adjustment, many patients report feeling relieved, calm and a sense of wellbeing. Others report feeling more mobile.
Chiropractic care and physiotherapy share some similarities. Both disciplines treat and manage your pain and stiffness, and they are practised by professionals who have extensive science-based education. They can, however, have slightly different approaches.
In both chiropractic and physiotherapy, the goal is to increase movement and strength, reduce pain, and restore your full functionality. The main difference between chiropractors and physiotherapists is that chiropractors use manipulation, while physiotherapists often use mobilisation techniques.
A chiropractor adjusts your spine and limbs by hand if they cannot move as they should. Manipulations that restore healthy body movement are gentle and specific. You should move better and more freely after receiving treatment.
We have a modern, well-equipped clinic in Gladstone, and our team of friendly and knowledgeable professionals are committed to helping you.
