Chiropractor Info

Chiropractor Summary:
Chiropractors diagnose and treat spinal misalignment that often effects the nerves, muscles, bones, and joints of the body. Although most contemporary chiropractors have introduced other therapies, spinal manipulation remains the essence of chiropractic. Chiropractors are often effective in dealing with acute and chronic low back pain, neck pain, headaches (including migraines), frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and other sports injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome, and may be helpful for otitis media (ear infection), digestive problems, menstrual and premenstrual pain and asthma.

Chiropractor FAQs:
What is a Chiropractor?
A Chiropractor practices a type of "therapy" in which abnormal function of the nervous system is considered the cause of disease. The method of treatment is delivered by a chiropractic doctor, or Chiropractor and usually involves manipulation or "adjustment" of the spinal column and other body structures. A Chiropractor attempts to correct misalignments which are often the cause of pain, illness and lack of body harmony.

What happens during a visit to a Chiropractor?
The first visit usually lasts about an hour. The Chiropractor takes a complete health history, including information on past injuries and illnesses; current conditions and medications; lifestyle; diet; sleep habits; exercise; mental stresses; and use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco. During a physical exam, the Chiropractor also tests the extent of spinal mobility and may perform various diagnostic tests, such as blood pressure and x-rays, to rule out other conditions. Patients are typically asked to lie on a specially designed table, where the Chiropractor performs the spinal manipulations. The most common maneuver is manual manipulation, which involves movement of the selected joint, followed by a low-force thrust. The Chiropractor may use other treatments including massage and soft-tissue therapies. Some people experience minor aches, stiffness, and tiredness for a few days after the manipulation while their body adjusts to the new alignment.

Are there conditions that should not be treated by a Chiropractor?
Individuals with bone fractures or tumors, acute arthritis, bone or joint infections, or advanced osteoporosis should avoid therapy by a Chiropractor in areas affected by any of these conditions. Patients should also tell their chiropractor about any physical disabilities they have, or if they are experiencing symptoms of numbness, tingling, weakness, or other neurological problems. In extremely rare cases, manipulation of the neck has damaged blood vessels or caused strokes. The screening process, however, is designed to detect people at high risk.

What type of education or degrees does a Chiropractor need?
A minimum of eight years of study is generally required to obtain a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree (DC). The Chiropractor student is required to complete a four-year undergraduate degree and a four-year degree from an accredited Chiropractic College or University. In order to attain the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, the Chiropractor must complete a one-year clinical internship prior to graduation. After graduation, the Chiropractor must pass four demanding national board exams and state exams in the states in which they practice.
