The goal of this form of therapy is to correct any structural issues within the musculoskeletal system, as well as increase joint mobility. The central focus of chiropractic manipulative therapy is placed on the spinal cord’s alignment and its structural integrity. Common symptoms of musculoskeletal issues are back pain, neck pain, and headaches. This could be due to a range of conditions, such as car accidents, sports injuries, poor sleep positions, or bad posture.
Treatment is performed by applying quick, non-forceful pressure on stiff joints. Each session is often accompanied by exercise instructions or lifestyle changes that are needed for a path to full recovery. Many chiropractors don’t claim to offer a simple cure, but rather identify the causes of pain and facilitate the conditions that’ll allow the body to naturally heal itself.
