Considered to be an alternative form of medicine, Phoenix chiropractic care involves the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders through treatment involving the manual adjustment of the spine. This is accomplished by holding to the basic belief that biochemical and structural issues associated with the spine can affect the nervous system. As such, manipulating the spine helps reduce the amount of pressure that is placed on sensitive tissues, thereby alleviating the pain associated with many conditions.
Treating Pain with Chiropractic Care
With the help of a Phoenix chiropractor, you can address a number of conditions. Among these are:
- Arthritic pain
- Car accident injuries
- Leg pain
- Lower back pain
- Repetitive strains
- Sports injuries
Ultimately, the goal is to re-establish normal spinal mobility to help alleviate irritation without needing surgery or other invasive interventions.
Chiropractic Care and Education
In addition to treating pain and other conditions, a skilled chiropractor will also focus on educating you in a way that will help you to further reduce pain and improve functionality. This might include providing you with information about exercises that you can perform, ergonomics information or other therapies to help you address the pain. If appropriate, a chiropractor will also refer patients to a medical doctor or other healthcare provider if additional treatment is necessary.
