Introduction to Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine which specializes in diagnosing and treating problems related to the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Chiropractic treatment usually involves manual adjustments or manipulations of the spine or other joints in the body to realign the bones and restore proper function. This can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote overall health and wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Can chiropractic care help with my headaches?
Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in treating certain types of headaches like cervicogenic and tension headaches. Performing adjustments to the spine and the muscles surrounding can help with inflammation by improving blood flow to the area which can then help relieve headaches.
2. Will a chiropractic treatment hurt?
Chiropractic adjustments are generally never painful, but some people may experience some soreness following a treatment. It is important to only see a registered chiropractor because they’re fully trained to use gentle and precise techniques to minimize any discomfort.
3. Do I need a referral from my doctor to see a chiropractor?
There is no requirement for a doctor referral to see a chiropractor but if you will be claiming it through your extended health insurance, they may require one for reimbursement or direct billing.
