Chiropractic Care in Long Beach Area

Advanced-Wellness-Chiropractic-Care-aChiropractic care was invented by David Palmer in 1895, but therapeutic manipulation can trace its roots back to Hippocrates in the 5th Century B.C. Defined as both a science and an art, chiropractic is more than a method for treating back pain, tapping into the inherent recuperative powers of the body. This form of healthcare focuses on the relationship between the musculoskeletal structure of the body, particularly the spinal column, and the nervous system in the restoration and maintenance of health. This natural approach to attaining wellness doesn’t rely upon medication or surgery.

Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the professions that fall within the category of complementary and alternative medicine. According to a survey of patients seeking alternative care, chiropractors are used more often than any other alternative provider group and the [patient] satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high. There is steadily increasing patient use of chiropractic in the United States, which has tripled in the past two decades. From a February 2002 article by William Meeker, DC, MPH and Scott Haldeman, DC, PhD, MD, FRCP in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, including, but not limited to: back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

What Does a Chiropractor Do?
Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are trained to prescribe therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation,” or “chiropractic adjustment” and is done to correct subluxations and restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force to joints that have become restricted in their movement. Adjustment of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal. There are dozens of different ways to perform an adjustment; please refer to the technique quide to learn more.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
Adjustments rarely cause discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

Will I Need To See A Chiropractor More Than Once?
Sometime subluxations have been present for a long time and the muscles connected to those misaligned vertebrae get used to their positions and have a tendency to pull the bone back out of place. It may take several visits before the adjustment “holds,” and the bone settles into its proper alignment.

Who Needs Chiropractic Care?
When a vertebra is out of alignment, it can interfere with the normal flow of life energy through nearby nerves. If the affected nerve happens to be carrying a message to the liver, the function of the liver can be altered. The health of every part of the body depends on the proper flow of energy and if that is interrupted or interfered with, the result is dis-ease. When bones are allowed to go back to their proper positions, the nerve energy can resume its natural flow. When the flow of nerve energy is restored, the body is often able to heal itself. So, who needs chiropractic? Whoever needs a normal flow of life energy in their body. Anyone who has headaches, back pain or any other kind of illness or injury – children or seniors, all can benefit from chiropractic care.
