Chiropractic care varies based on the techniques and methods used by your chiropractor and may include manual spinal manipulation, instrument assisted manipulation, computerized spinal manipulation, soft tissue techniques, rehabilitation exercises, sports therapy, acupuncture, kinesiotaping, nutritional counseling, and a variety of other techniques.

Why is chiropractic so safe? There are four main reasons:
1. Chiropractors have been trained, doing clinical work long before becoming licensed.
2. Chiropractors have years of schooling with coursework that includes classes on all aspects of the spine.
3. Chiropractors continue their education long after graduation, completing courses yearly in order to maintain a license to practice.
4. Chiropractor’s basic philosophy is that the body is capable of healing itself. The purpose of a chiropractor is simply to remove the subluxations, or blockages, that occur in spine so that the body can do its job.
Chiropractic, on the other hand, has limited recovery time. At most, chiropractic patients may feel some mild soreness in the area of the manipulation. This soreness is typically gone in a matter of hours, not days or weeks as with surgery.
Additionally, surgical patients that are older, out of shape, overweight, or generally in poor health will take far longer to heal and be ready for every day life. Although different factors will dictate how quickly you are pain free, the ability to resume your lifestyle happens quickly with most patients, often with as little as one manipulation.
A chiropractor will help you with the cause of the problem rather than help you manage the symptoms.
