Have you ever wondered what a chiropractor does? Chiropractic care has long been praised for its ability to provide relief from muscle and joint pain, but there is far more to it than that. Chiropractic practitioners are knowledgeable professionals who have an array of in-depth skills that can be used to restore and optimize physical health and well-being.
Chiropractors are licensed health care professionals who focus on your body’s capability to heal itself. Helping to care for the neuromusculoskeletal system, which focuses on the bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Before they do anything, chiropractors perform an examination of a patient, looking at their spine’s position and muscle reflexes. As well as taking some x-rays in order to see the problem. Instead of using prescription drugs to help alleviate pain, they will use a kind of therapy called spinal manipulation. Where they use their hands or instruments to apply force to a joint in the spine, moving the joint in a specific direction for better alignment.
In addition to spinal adjustments, Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to help the body heal itself. They might have you stretch or do certain exercises to help with joint mobility and balance. Or they might use soft tissue therapy to help ease spasms, tension, and tight muscles in your body. Your chiropractor might also use k-tape to help with sprained joints or muscles. When it comes to k-tape, CanDo® Kinesiology Tape is the best choice. This is because it can help reduce inflammation, increase circulation, reduce pain, improve mobility, enhance recovery, and prevent future injuries.
