Complex injuries and pain often involve an interplay between injured body parts and the nervous system. Chiropractic is a holistic, hands-on, drug-free healthcare discipline that comprehensively assesses and treats conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal system with an emphasis on the contribution of the nervous system.
Often sought for specific injuries and pain, the treatment also identifies and addresses less obvious issues responsible for referred pain and secondary complaints. While common targets for chiropractic treatment include back pain, neck pain and joint pain, chiropractic can also address health concerns such as headaches that may be secondary effects of injury or dysfunction.
The best known chiropractic treatment technique is a chiropractic adjustment (the word ‘chiropractic’ comes from the Greek words for ‘hands’, cheir and ‘practice’, praxis). Based on a thorough assessment, which may include X-rays, a chiropractor will carefully and purposefully apply pressure to your spine or other joints to adjust and correct alignment, to reduce pain and improve movement. In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be a standalone treatment. However, a Soaring Health chiropractor may also refer you to other health professionals and, where appropriate, work collaboratively with them on co-occurring complaints or conditions.
