What Is Chiropractic Care? Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints, particularly those of the spine, and their effects on the nervous system. Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
How A Chiropractor Makes A Diagnosis Diagnosis is reached only after thorough examination of the patient, including: Case history and physical examination, observation of posture to assess biomechanical stresses, examination of individual joints, x-rays or imaging (when clinically necessary).
Treatment And Patient ManagementTreatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm. Such skilled manipulation is very specific, directed at individual joints in order to reduce strains and improve mobility in one area without disturbing another. Treatments are also supported with individual counseling and advice about the patient's lifestyle, work and exercise, in order to help in managing the condition and preventing a recurrence of the problem. In comparison with osteopaths and physiotherapists, chiropractors tend to use manipulation as the main form of treatment, as well as mechanized treatment tables and use of soft tissue or massage techniques. X-rays may be used in the diagnostic process if clinically justified.
What is DTS Treatment? DTS is a non-surgical treatment to help in the management of serious low back/leg pain. DTS treatment is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be a major source of pain. It can relieve the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica and headaches. DTS helps relieve pain through decompression of lumbar or cervical discs and joints (that is unloading due to distraction and positioning). This cyclical painless stretching reduces pressure and promotes blood and fluid flow. This helps improve healing naturally.
Can DTS Work For You? DTS treatment may provide the relief you’re looking for. Much of the common cause of back and neck pain is mechanical compression. Decompression is a direct, intuitive remedy - and unlike other treatments it can focus its effect at the source of the pain.
What about Pinched Nerves?Damaged discs can cause limb pain or numbness in two ways – they can simply “refer” pain or they can pressure a nearby nerve root. True “pinched nerves” may create leg or arm pain but little back or neck pain. They are often a more serious problem and may take additional time and therapy to resolve.
Everyday For LifeTrue health is more than a state of being. It is a lifestyle that is achieved through daily habits. To promote lifelong good health, you need good nutrition, which includes both micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other compounds we consume in small amounts) and macronutrients (carbohydrates, high-quality proteins, and beneficial fats). When your body lacks these vital nutrients, it does not function properly. You also need to care for your skin to defend against the daily effects of free radicals on your appearance. The foundation for good health is developed in childhood and progresses day by day. We must begin now to develop and promote daily habits of eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, exercising, taking high-quality nutritional supplements, drinking plenty of water, and caring for our skin. These practices work together to keep you feeling and looking your best and are not things to be done once a week or a few months out of the year. Maintaining good health must be an everyday process. We carry the full line of Metagenic products which will partner in your process of building true health – every day for life.
