Chiropractic treatments are a drug-free, surgery-free natural form of health care and are often referred to as alternative medicine. The treatments involve spinal manipulation, rehabilitative exercises, and other therapies to counteract muscle, skeletal and nervous system imbalances that negatively impact a patient’s overall health.
Knoxville Chiropractic treatments
A chiropractor’s goal is to improve functionality and reduce pain, and this is done by re-establishing optimal spinal mobility and nerve function. Chiropractors also educate patients on proper ergonomics and exercises to maintain optimal health. Spinal manipulation, also called chiropractic adjustment is the primary treatment, and involves applying precisely directed and controlled manual forces to specific areas of the spine in order to restore spinal alignment and mobility of the joints.
These misalignments are called subluxations, and they impede regular transmission of nerve impulses, thus creating issues far away from the spinal cord. Restoration of spinal alignment results in restoration of normal nerve transmission, which then allows the body to naturally heal.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
One common misconception is that these adjustments are uncomfortable and painful. Actually, chiropractic adjustments are very effective and very safe, and rarely create discomfort, but a patient might have mild muscle soreness immediately following treatment.
