Chiropractic is a healthcare field that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system
It is a form of complementary or alternative medicine used as a noninvasive therapy or treatment.
What is the neuro-musculoskeletal system?
The neuromusculoskeletal system represents the holistic relationship between the nervous system, the muscular system, and the skeletal system of the human body. Each of these systems are heavily reliant on one another to function properly, and in an optimal state, they each mutually enhance and support the well-being of one another.
The neuromusculoskeletal system comprises the body’s bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, soft tissue, and nerve connections and nerve bundles. When any or all of the systems within the neuromusculoskeletal system are disrupted, this can create a disruption across the entire body.
Chiropractic care focuses on rebalancing all of the systems within the neuromuscular skeletal system to rebalance the global health of the body, facilitate mobility, decrease pain, improve flexibility, agility, and performance, and to support cognitive health.
What makes chiropractic care different?
Chiropractic care focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions without resorting to invasive (surgical) treatment techniques.
The main techniques chiropractors work with include hands-on, manual therapy techniques. This may include spine manipulation, or manipulation of joints or other soft tissues.
At Fremont Spine And Wellness, our chiropractors begin treatment by assessing the symptoms that the patient is experiencing and/or exhibiting. When necessary, orthopedic and neurological evaluation as well as radiographic imaging techniques may be used to provide a more thorough diagnosis.
