Chiropathy

  1. 1. CHIRORAPCTIC THERAPHY
  2. 2. What is Chiropractic Therapy? • Chiropractic is from Greek words meaning done by hand. It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system is functioning properly. • Chiropractic therapy focuses on the relationship between the body's structure — mainly the spine — and the body's function. • Chiropractic therapy is used most often to treat musculoskeletal conditions
  3. 3. It's suggested for several health conditions including: • back and neck pain • back pain related to a woman's monthly period • headaches and migraines • leg pain and sciatica • sports injuries
  4. 4. Basic Concepts • The body has a powerful ability to heal itself. • The body's structure (mainly the spine) and its function are closely related, and this relationship affects health. • Chiropractic therapy is given with the goal of normalizing the relationship between structure and function and helping the body as it heals.
  5. 5. Special Considerations • It's important to talk to your doctor if you're thinking about trying chiropractic therapy. • Anyone with bleeding problems or those on anticoagulants (blood thinners) may have a higher risk of stroke caused by manipulation of the spine. • Women with weakened bones or osteoporosis from breast cancer treatment may be at risk for broken bones from chiropractic therapy.
  6. 6. Possible Side Effects • These are the unwanted, but mostly mild and temporary effects of a successful treatment. These can include discomfort or mild pain at the point manipulation, stiffness or tiredness for a day or so.
