What Are The Common Types of Chiropractic Techniques?

1. Spinal Manipulation

Spinal adjustment is one of the most common chiropractic techniques for treating back and neck pain. The chiropractor will apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint at the end of its available motion. This is commonly done with the patient lying on their side or facing down on a table. Spinal manipulation effectively treats acute problems such as strained muscles or pinched nerves.

2. Soft Tissue Therapy  

Soft tissue techniques involve massage-like actions to treat muscle spasms, tendinitis and fibromyalgia. The chiropractor may use their hands to apply deep pressure and stretching to tight or tender muscles, ligaments and tendons. Soft tissue therapy helps reduce pain and improve mobility for conditions affecting the muscles and connective tissues.

Along with these techniques, chiropractors educate patients about nutrition to support spinal and musculoskeletal health.

FAQs

1. What type of chiropractic treatment is best in Vancouver?

A chiropractor’s expertise and the patient’s condition determine the appropriate treatment type. There is no definitive answer regarding the “best” type. Most chiropractors take an eclectic approach, blending techniques as needed. An integrative regimen customized to each patient gives the best overall results.

 

2. How safe is chiropractic during pregnancy?

Chiropractic is generally considered safe during pregnancy when performed by an experienced practitioner. Gentle adjustments that avoid intense pressure on the abdomen can help relieve back/joint pain common in pregnancy. As with any treatment during pregnancy, women should discuss chiropractic care with their obstetrician. If you are looking for a chiropractor near me, True Health Studio can help!
