Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, etc. Doctors of Chiropractic often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

How does chiropractic differ from other forms of health care?

As a Colorado resident, you will notice a wide variety of health care practitioners from medical doctors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, physical therapist, osteopaths, and chiropractors.  What makes the chiropractor unique is the treatment of the central nervous system via adjusting the spinal joints, affecting the neuromuscular system and biomechanics of human movement. The nervous system regulates all functions of your body. So, controlling the nervous system is one of the most profound treatments available in the world today.

There have been research studies showing the multitude of benefits of spinal manipulation for certain conditions, and along with the studies comes many reasons and proof that chiropractic therapy works. There is evidence that spinal manipulation as physiological therapy was used as early as the ancient Egyptians.

The neurological wiring of the nervous system is affected by chiropractic adjustments due to the relationship of the wiring of the joint and the central nervous system.  Nerves in the legs and arms can also be involved, with nerves being irritated by tight muscles and or adhesions resulting in pain, numbness, and/or tingling. Chiropractors who are also trained in A.R.T. are able to locate these nerve irritations and restore normal nerve flow by actively moving the specific joint and applying pressure to the specific spot and "freeing" it up. Many people who experience this, are noticeably better in one treatment.
