Neck Pain Treatment Chiropractic care has been used as a proven and effective alternative method of medical treatment for centuries. Primary care physicians are beginning to fully understand that chiropractic treatment can be a valuable tool in their patients' rehabilitation and in maintaining a healthy and pain-free (or as pain-free as possible). Physicians are suggesting to their patients that they try chiropractic treatment before resorting to more drastic or risky methods of treatment such as medication trial and error and surgery. Although chiropractic care is proven to be less evasive and poses less risk, it does have its own advantages and disadvantages which should be weighed carefully before choosing to proceed with this method of care. A chiropractor, or Doctor of Chiropractic, is different from a Doctor of Medicine. The chiropractor's goals are to "diagnose, treat, correct, and prevent neurological, skeletal, or soft tissue dysfunction by primarily employing manual and conservative therapies; the most frequent being spinal and other articular adjustments and manipulations". It is a science-based and holistic method of treatment that is far less evasive than traditional forms of medical care and rehabilitation. The focus is on getting the body working smoothly as a whole unit instead of just treating one symptom at a time. Due to chiropractic care being a holistic method of treatment, it is less risky than traditional treatments. Patients do not have to endure surgery, use medication to induce a comatose state to help the body relax to heal itself, or use medication on a long-term basis to control pain/symptoms. Chiropractic treatments realign the spine and joints which allows the body to naturally "reset" itself to obtain and maintain optimal health. To avoid further injury to current physical conditions and avoid any new injuries, it is paramount that you choose your chiropractor very carefully. He/she needs to be a licensed and highly qualified, highly skilled and experienced chiropractor. The first step is to research their professional Dr. of Chiropractic license and his/her professional background/profile. Inquire about how long they have been a chiropractor, research if there has been any complaints made against him/her, if they have any specialist licenses or awards, what services he/she is qualified to provide, and if their fees are reasonable (not inflated). If the chiropractor does not meet highly qualified standards then keep searching. An unlicensed chiropractor that has little or no experience or they are not highly qualified/skilled can do serious damage to your body. Often times this damage is irreversible and could possibly cause a patient to become paralyzed, permanently disabled or cause death (which is highly rare).There are numerous benefits to chiropractic treatment, but there are nine that are more prominent: improved circulation, reduction or elimination of lactic acid, oxygen and nutrients are easily delivered to the whole body, increased flexibility, elimination of (or drastically reduced) pain and soreness, faster recovery time, decreased frequency of muscle spasms, prevention of future injuries or further aggravation of a current condition, and feeling healthier and more relaxed/at ease (The Minneapolis Chiropractors).The downside to chiropractic care is that there are side-effects and problem areas that patients need to be aware of. Certain patients may not experience any side-effects until hours or days after their treatment. Some of the side-effects associated with chiropractic treatment are fatigue, pain in the area(s) of the chief complaint and headaches. Although rare, there are more serious side-effects such as: herniated disk(s), compression of the nerves in the lower portion (lumbar region) of the spine which can result in pain that is more intense than the original pain along with weakness, bowel problems and the possibility of a stroke. On the plus side, chiropractors will do a thorough exam to make sure you don't have any medical conditions that might worsen the current physical condition(s). There are also people that need specialized care such as the elderly, pregnant women, children and infants. This group is more physically vulnerable to injuries and need to have a chiropractor that specializes in patients that fit into this group. Overall, chiropractic treatment is less expensive than surgery or numerous medications. There is, however, a downside to the financial side of chiropractic care. Each chiropractic session runs anywhere from $25.00 to $100.00. The length of the session can last between five or ten minutes up to one hour. The frequency of visits needed to obtain optimal health ranges from two to four times per week. If you do the math, you can see that these sessions can quickly add up. Aside from the financial aspect, this method of treatment is "hit or miss". Some patients experience immediate relief. Then there are patients that, after numerous sessions and hundreds (even thousands) of dollars, experience no relief or improvement at all. The way to avoid further injury to current physical issues and/or avoid new injuries, is to choose your chiropractor very carefully. He/she needs to be a licensed highly qualified, skilled, and experienced chiropractor. You need to first research the chiropractor's professional Dr. of Chiropractic license to make sure they are legally able to provide treatment(s) in your state. Look at how long they have been a chiropractor, if there has been any complaints made against him/her, if they have any specialist licenses or awards, what services he/she is qualified to provide, and if their fees are reasonable (not inflated). If the chiropractor does not meet highly qualified standards, keep searching. An unlicensed chiropractor that is not experienced or highly qualified/skilled can do serious damage to your body. Often times this damage is irreversible and could possibly cause a patient to become paralyzed or (although rare) cause death. The above pros and cons of chiropractic care will help you make an educated decision on whether or not this method will be beneficial for you and your condition/injury. Choosing a chiropractor that meets your physical and mental needs takes time. Never allow yourself to be bullied or pressured into selecting a chiropractor. You need to another doctor that you feel comfortable with. You need to be able to effectively communicate with your chiropractor for optimal results. You are in charge of your body, so keep searching until you find a chiropractor that you have "professional doctor/patient chemistry" with. Talk with your primary physician about utilizing chiropractic services so you can start enjoying a pain-free life today. Neck Pain Relief

What is Best Chiropractic - Treatment of Hip Pain?

Many people wonder are chiropractors doctors and what do they do? Chiropractors are required to attend medical school for three years and earn a doctorate degree. This is the same degree dentists and doctors have. Chiropractors study medication and therapy while in school and typically focus on treating problems with the joints and spine. Every state requires chiropractors to obtain a license before they can practice. The same department handles licensing for all physicians. These professionals use x-rays to diagnose problems and are responsible for devising and implementing a treatment protocol for the patient. Some treatments involve manipulation of the joints and the back. Chiropractors offer alternative treatments for back pain that are noninvasive and less risky that surgery. Many health insurance policies will cover chiropractic care. There are certain neuromuscular conditions that will not respond to chiropractic medicine. In some cases, doctors and chiropractors will work together to come up with a suitable treatment for a patient. A chiropractor can offer patients more options when it comes to nontraditional treatments. Alternative treatments may be incorporated into the program to speed the patient's recovery. D.D. Palmer introduced chiropractic medicine in the late 17th century in Iowa. At the time, there were many people practicing medicine that had no experience and were making all kinds of promises to people about special elixirs and alternative treatment methods. Palmer's first school opened in 1895 and his son carried on in his father's footsteps. Unscientific treatment methods were abandoned and many doctors at that time were actually in agreement with chiropractors. To this day, chiropractic medicine is shunned in some medical circles and there are many patients who are missing out on treatments that can help because their doctors will not refer them to a chiropractor. Much of the friction between the professions disappeared when a chiropractor won a lawsuit against the American Medical Association during the 1908s. The AMA was found to have conspired to prevent chiropractors from practicing their trade using illegal restraint of trade practices. Since then various chiropractic organizations stay vigilant for libelous statements that can hurt the industry. So, the short answer to the question is, yes. Chiropractors are indeed doctors and many patients benefit from various treatments they will only get in a chiropractor's office. Anyone with back and joint problems can seek the advice of a local chiropractor and find a treatment protocol that suits their individual needs. Herniated Disk

Upper Back Pain - How a Chiropractor Can Help You?

A good chiropractor should be able to determine what the cause of the muscle imbalance and/or spine misalignment is, whether it is purely structural or whether there is an underlying problem such as a nutrient deficiency, food sensitivity, a toxic overload, or a hormonal imbalance. This takes not only a good chiropractor but an inquisitive mind set as well as good doctoring skills. These are not taught in all chiropractic schools, and the good chiropractors have usually had lots of other training, for example in applied kinesiology. Hence in my view, chiropractic adjustments are useful to address some musculoskeletal issues. For sure, for acute injuries to the system. When it comes to chronic pain though, the key to getting rid of the issue is addressing the cause. A practitioner who understands how the body works will use a combination of spinal manipulation with physical therapy to address tight and weak muscles, and offer a plan on removing the cause of the ailment (postural habits, etc). This would be similar to the work of a physical therapist skilled in spinal manipulation. Often however even that is not enough. A chiropractor with a firm belief that removing spine misalignments is all that is needed to treat a person will likely keep a person with a vitamin deficiency or a food allergy in treatment for months (and be unsuccessful). I think that is plain ignorant. To treat a person, all aspects of the body have to be considered and for that a holistic practitioner acknowledging the whole body approach to healing is needed. A good chiropractor will recognize the limitation of his or her work and will refer a patient to someone else if spinal manipulation is not producing lasting results. Long term Chiropractic care many chiropractors think that regular spinal manipulations are necessary to stay healthy. After all, in their minds, all disease originates in the spine, and hence small misalignments should be frequently removed for optimal health. It is not clear to me whether these chiropractors actually believe this or whether they simply understand that they will have clients for life, as long as the client believes that he or she should see the chiropractor once a month for optimal health. Of course, services are not limited to adults. Many chiropractors now offer a family package and start adjusting children from infancy; For maintenance: once a month for the rest of their lives.Maintenance may be a good idea a couple times a year or after accidents to prevent the problem of "as the twig is bent, so grows the tree". However, there is more to good maintenance healthcare than adjusting. The biochemical and emotional systems also need maintenance, and typically people with more balanced chemical and emotional systems will need less adjustment to stay feeling good. A good alternative to using a chiropractor for health maintenance is using a practitioner who can address the full spectrum of healthcare and preventive maintenance, such as a Naturopathic Doctor also trained in physical medicine.In summary: The good: chiropractic manipulation can be extremely helpful in reducing or removing pain, often chronic.The bad: Typical chiropractors address only the structural component of the problem. Some will often guidance on how to stretch and strengthen affected muscle groups to help the spine in alignment. Most do not tackle the chemical/hormonal aspect of the problem which are often the hidden cause of spinal misalignments. There is also an emotional aspect of spinal alignments which is rarely addressed.The ugly: Chiropractors often set up their practice with the intention of keeping the clients coming and coming and coming. It's not uncommon to see packages of 60 to 80 visits sold upfront: not only for you - but for your entire family, whether they are ill or not! Optimal Solution: Finding a practitioner who understands the relationship between the musculoskeletal, biochemical, and emotional systems in your body, and can get to the cause of your problem. This can be a holistic chiropractor, naturopathic doctor trained in spinal manipulation, or perhaps a chiropractor who's also an acupuncturist. Sciatic Nerve Treatment
