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.
The expert chiropractors of Fremont Spine + Wellness use the diagnostic information acquired during each patient’s initial appointment to determine a unique and individualized plan of treatment which will effectively address their symptoms. Each patient’s treatment plan will differ, but most will include treatment through the use of spinal manipulation and manual therapy techniques which alleviate pain and restore natural functionality of the joints, muscles, and tendons. If needed, the chiropractor will lead the patient through rehabilitative exercises.
Chiropractic care is unique in that it is entirely non-invasive, and yet is often able to achieve substantial or complete pain reduction, elimination and reduction of symptoms, and increased overall health and wellness outcomes.
In some cases (and upon request), your expert chiropractor may also work with your other healthcare professionals as part of a comprehensive, team-based healthcare plan.
