Holistic Options: Here’s The Inside Scoop On Your Chiropractor!

Chiropractic care is becoming increasingly popular throughout the Caribbean as more look for natural approaches to maintain health and wellness. 

It is one of the most prevalent forms of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Arguably one of the reasons for its growing popularity is that it is drug-free, non-surgical care.

Using non-invasive medicine, chiropractors focus on the spine, pelvis, joints and nervous system.  Chiropractors or chiropractic physicians treat and help prevent disorders using their hands.  The main form of treatment employed is called manual adjustments or manipulation of the spine. 

As a CAM, chiropractic physicians use their treatment in conjunction with other healthcare practitioners such as osteopaths. Also, like osteopaths, chiropractors must be licensed and are guided by a regulatory board.

At this point, we gather, you may be considering taking visiting a chiropractor.  Before you do, here are some conditions treated by chiropractors:

  • Back pain.
  • Car accident injuries.
  • Neck pain.
  • Migraine headaches.
  • Slip disc.
  • Partial dislocation (subluxation).

As we continue along our journey of holistic options, up next will be massage therapy. Until then, do enjoy your next visit to the chiropractor.

In the event, you need to find a chiropractor near, search the Yello listing.
