What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession focusing on musculoskeletal disorders and their effects on the nervous system and general health. Chiropractic is recognised for its results on back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the limbs, and headaches, showing better results than pain relief medication in many studies. Regarding the abuse of opioids in the USA, the recommendations are now promoting first physical therapies rather than chemical therapies.
Chiropractic suits everyone from children to seniors including athletes or sedentary people, housewives or pregnant ladies, builders or office workers, slim or overweight individuals. The treatment will be suited to each person using different modalities and techniques.
Chiropractors excel in the relief of the symptoms but also, more importantly, in treating the cause of the problem to recover faster and better. They practice a hands-on approach without medication.
They receive a five-year college training including a year of internship. The Commission of Inquiry into Chiropractic concluded that chiropractors in New Zealand are careful and skilled. They also advocated the chiropractic care, from registered practitioners, does not show unusual degree of risk.
