Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Disorders of these systems can have impacts on overall health and function. Chiropractic care most often addresses these neuromusculoskeletal complaints which include but are not limited to neck pain, low back pain, headaches, and pain in joints of the arms and legs.
One of the most common therapeutic procedures used by doctors of chiropractic is called chiropractic manipulation, which is also known as a chiropractic adjustment. The doctor utilizes a targeted and controlled force into a joint that has become restricted or hypomobile, in order to restore normal function within the area. Hypomobility is usually associated with tissue injury. Tissues can become injured from a variety of causes such as a single traumatic event like a car collision or sports injury, as well as long term micro-trauma from poor posture, or repetitive loading.
