The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as spinal manipulation, also called a chiropractic adjustment. The purpose of the manipulation is to restore joint mobility in joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation which may result in pain or diminished function. Manipulation helps restore mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal.
In many cases chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. When chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition or the condition warrants co-management with other specialties chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider.
