Chiropractic Treatment Richmond BC


Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Proponents believe that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system, and that chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.

Key Concepts of Chiropractic Care:

  • Subluxation: Central to chiropractic is the concept of a spinal subluxation, which refers to a misalignment of the vertebrae that is believed to cause health problems through interference with the nervous system.

  • Holistic Approach: Chiropractors often adopt a holistic approach to health, emphasizing the body's inherent recuperative powers and the importance of maintaining proper spinal alignment for overall health.

  • Preventive Care: Chiropractic emphasizes the preventive aspect of health care, advocating for regular spinal adjustments to maintain spinal health and prevent disease.

Common Conditions Treated:

Chiropractic care is most commonly sought for musculoskeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and headaches. While chiropractic adjustments are most known for their effectiveness in treating low back pain, practitioners also treat a wide range of other conditions.

Treatment Techniques:

  • Spinal Manipulation: The most common technique, involving the application of a controlled force to a joint of the spine, aiming to improve function and alleviate pain.

  • Mobilization: Involves low-velocity movements and stretching of muscles and joints, with the goal of increasing the range of motion within those areas.
