Chiropractic is a Holistic Treatment

Chiropractic: A holistic type of medicine
The philosophy of chiropractic is a holistic one. It means that the treatment you receive will be 100% all natural. So often in the medical world, doctors write a prescription as the final step in treating pain. In their mind, ending the pain is the end of the problem. With chiropractors and other holistic medical professionals, the goal is not to cover up the pain, but to discover the cause of it and work with your body’s natural healing processes to heal the injury naturally.

Medications do have their place in medicine today, but many times medications that are prescribed for pain or inflammation can have bad side effects. They can cause drowsiness, effect your ability to concentrate which can affect your ability to go to work or school. The long-term effects can have an effect on body systems and organs and be even more detrimental to your health
However, holistic and natural medicine is an alternative and increasingly popular form of treatment. Chiropractors can use a number of methods for pain relief:
  • spinal manipulation
  • techniques such as traction, non surgical decompression
  • electrotherapy such as ultrasound and interferential stimulation
  • nutrition
  • cold or hot therapy
  • recommend changes to diet
  • massage and trigger point therapy
  • prescribed exercises and stretches
These natural therapies do not create side effects that many medications do. Most importantly, it works with your body’s natural healing ability to create an all natural healing process for your body.
