Understanding Chiropractic Methods – Colorado Springs Chiropractor
Especially for the new chiropractic patient visiting our Colorado Springs office, we wanted to review our chiropractic methods. A common belief is that most chiropractors are mainly concerned with treating back pain. While back pain treatment is part of what we offer, the spectrum of services that we provide can help restore movement and better alignment for the entire body.
For example, a patient may visit us complaining of neck pain. We will take a full assessment of their physical condition and discuss the patient’s lifestyle at work and at home. By reviewing this overall picture we can not only discover the triggers and causes of the pain (which is key to preventing further discomfort), but we can also identify adjacent muscles and tissues that can be affected. In other words, the pain that a patient suffers is often part of a larger context, not only limited to the painful area.
We call the methods we use to alleviate pain and alignment ‘adjustments.’ Done by hand or through the use of an instrument, chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain and promote relaxation in the patient.
