This YouTube video by Dr. Cordova of Core Chiropractic provides reasons why chiropractic care can help your back.
What Does a Chiropractor do?
Chiropractic care is for individuals with health issues due to their neuromusculoskeletal system. This includes nerves, bones (particularly their vertebrae), and muscles.
Chiropractors adjust and manipulate a patient’s spine, among other things, to correct curvatures and straighten areas. In doing so, they help ease issues related to back and neck pain, headaches, numbness, and many more issues.
As Dr. Cordova discusses in the video, X-rays are an important part of chiropractic care. It’s the best way to figure out why a patient suffers from their ailments. Once they review the images of their skeletal structure, they’re able to construct a course of therapies to help them. Additional X-rays are taken during the process to check on improvements.
If the process is on track, then therapy continues until a solution is reached. If there’s minimal or no change, then the method of chiropractic care is adjusted to see if it helps.
