What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a natural holistic method of the spine, joint, and sports injury treatment. It focuses on restoring health without medication, injection, or surgery. The profession of chiropractic started in 1895 in the United States of America. Since it has flourished and is now available throughout the world. Chiropractors treat the spine, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. The treatment given by a chiropractor is called an adjustment.
An adjustment is given through the hands-on method or via an instrument. The instrument-assisted form of chiropractic treatment (adjustments) is by a device called the Activator. The Activator method of chiropractic treatment is the best and most effective form of care given by chiropractors. It offers all the benefits of the hands-on method, but with greater precision. Hands-on methods such as the Diversified Technique, Gonstead chiropractic, or Thompson methods are the common hands-on chiropractic care system. While these hands-on methods work well for the majority, some with spinal disc issues or acute injuries may do better with the Activator method.
