What Is Chiropractic?

Natural Chiropractic in East Lansing, MI

You may have heard that chiropractic has a high success rate when it comes to treating common ailments like chronic pain, especially back pain and neck pain. 

But what exactly is chiropractic?  

A chiropractor is . . .

A primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and well-being. They focus on the prevention, diagnosis and conservative care of spine-related disorders and other painful joint issues. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching and nutritional advice.

A chiropractic adjustment is . . .

A very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Accidents, falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.

Chiropractic care costs . . .

The same as, or less than, other types of health care and is included in most health insurance plans.

Chiropractors collaborate . . .

With other health-care providers every day. They are trained to refer you to the appropriate specialist when needed.

Chiropractors use . . .

Scientific research, clinical experience, and patient preferences to provide the best care possible. Ninety-five percent of past-year chiropractic users say it’s effective, and 89 percent recommend chiropractic to their family and friends.

Chiropractors also use their own tools and methodologies. I use the Heart Technique in my practice.

Chiropractic is safe, effective, affordable care. 

Chiropractic in 2021

Chiropractic is continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the public in the post-COVID era. This means not only do many of us now offer telehealth or the option of working with patients remotely, we offer very specific and tailored solutions for people with certain conditions, goals, aspirations, and preferences. 

I enjoy working with patients who are proactive about their health and have a desire to understand the actual root cause of their stress, headaches, anxiety, depression, or pain. More often than not, there is an emotional component to address, along with other internal and external root causes. 

This is where I’ve seen great results with my patients who may have been frustrated with traditional approaches in the past.
