Techniques Used in Chiropractic Adjustments
When looking for a chiropractic wellness center in the South Florida area there are many options. We have quite a few good doctors down here. You can vet your future chiropractor by asking a few simple questions.
Inquire about background and schooling when selecting an office and doctor for your treatments. Sit down and speak with them on their techniques and preferred methods.
Ask the chiropractor if they use ice and heat packs alongside gentle manipulation and stretching of the joints and muscles. This is usually a good sign and indicates they are a science based chiropractor. They will usually also use ultrasound treatments and recommend a mild home exercise regimen similar to that one a physical therapist will use.
Some things to avoid when looking for a chiropractic wellness center here in South Florida. It is usually best to avoid chiropractors who utilize Activator Methods, allergy testing, applied kinesiology, Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.), chelation therapy, colonic irrigation, cranial or craniosacral therapy, laser acupuncture, magnetic or biomagnetic therapy, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), or Neural Organization Technique (NOT).
Chiropractors indication treatment can cure diseases or try to make you sign a contract for long term care should be avoided. Doctors that speak about “danger signals” leading to necessary care raise a red flag.
Chiropractic treatments do carry risk if done incorrectly so caution must be exercised. Spinal manipulations involving quick movements have greater potential for injury than more conservative types of therapy. Chiropractic neck manipulation can cause serious injuries if not done with care by a professional with experience. Neck manipulation should be done very gently with care to avoid excessive rotation that could damage the patient’s vertebral artery.
Select your chiropractor carefully to so the chances are lessened for injury.
