Chiropractic primarily focuses on diagnosing, managing and preventing mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This covers a wide range of conditions from a simple muscle or ligament sprain/strain to a hot and raging disc bulge. Chiropractors are highly qualified healthcare professionals who have studied at university for at least 5 years to recognise and treat various conditions. When something does not fit within their scope of practice they acknowledge and refer you on to the relevant health professional.
Chiropractic offers a drug free modality of treatment which is generally considered safe, gentle and conservative (a small proportion of people may experience some adverse reactions). While it is easy to pop a pill to reduce pain and inflammation it may only be masking the pain and not getting to the root of the problem. There might be underlying issues which may cause the pain to reoccur again later down the track and become more and more frequent. And of course the adverse affects of ongoing continued use of over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatories causing ulcers to the lining of the stomach.
Chiropractic also offers a surgery free modality of treatment, an option to keep joints going for as long as bearingly possible. While advancements in technology and medicine have been great it is still important to know the success rate percentage on certain procedures before you make an informed decision. Of course each individual will be treated according to their own scenario. And a discussion and agreement with your Chiropractor on the different modalities and period of your trial of care will give you a clear indication of what to expect and when you will be referred on.
