Work, Workout, or Motor Vehicle Injuries

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is concerned with human health, prevention of disease and injuries. Doctors of chiropractic are physicians who consider a person as an integrated being, but give special attention to spinal biomechanics, musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, and nutritional relationships and their impact upon health.All states in the USA (and Puerto Rico) have statutes recognizing and regulating the practice of chiropractic as an independent health service.

As of 1995, the practice of chiropractic was officially regulated in nine of the provinces of Canada, in Switzerland, West Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Bolivia, and is acknowledged and accepted in the Scandinavian countries, Italy, the British Isles, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Japan, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, and the Virgin Islands. This list is increasing.

One of the chiropractor’s primary tools is the chiropractic adjustment. The chiropractor can gently and skilfully direct a specific force to restore normal range of motion to a joint which is being restricted by muscles or fibrous adhesions. Abnormal nerve signals caused by the restriction which create interference with normal function can then be eliminated. Once normal motion is restored, other body systems which have compensated for the problem can begin to return to normal. Studies have shown that the chiropractic adjustment triggers the release of natural painkillers known as endorphins and that swelling, inflammation and pain can reduce significantly after an adjustive intervention. The effects of a chiropractic adjustment may be felt long distances from the point at which it was delivered: the elimination of a chronic headache, for example, after an adjustment of the vertebrae of the neck or even the lower back.Because chiropractic’s approach is conservative and designed to be as noninvasive as possible, it may take several adjustments on several days to restore a balance. Since the chiropractor facilitates the patient in becoming healthy, it is imperative that the patient cooperate and take responsibility for their healing.
