What is Chiropractic Care?
The term ”chiropractic” combines the Greek words ”cheri” (hand) and ”praktiki” (practice) to describe a treatment done by hand. Hands-on therapy – especially adjustment of the spine – is central to chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is based on the belief that the relationship between the body’s structure (primarily the spine) and its function (as coordinated by the nervous system) affects our health. Biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the nervous system. For many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the spine’s structural integrity, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
How does Chiropractic Care Work?
Chiropractic care treats the spine and structural gateway between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and all organs, muscles, bones, and skin. These structures are all innervated by nerves extending from the spinal cord through the spinal column joints. Dr. Rashad Trabulsi and Dr. Alex Kazhdan ranked as two of the best chiropractors in New York City with a combined experience of over 20 years. Their philosophy is to heal patients by maintaining a drug-free, non-surgical approach to treating injuries and nerve or joint-related illnesses.
Spinal adjustment is a specific procedure used to help correct the body’s nerve interference. This must be applied with the correct amount of pressure in the proper direction. Usually, this is done with the doctor’s hands but can also involve additional instruments. Often symptoms are relieved immediately, and many patients report a feeling of peace and relaxation. It often leads to increased energy and improved sleep.
What is Common Use of Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic services used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractic adjustments improve both the range and quality of motion in the joints. Many professional athletes are using chiropractic care for rehabilitation and injury prevention.
