What Does A Chiropractor Do?

You might be asking yourself, “What does a Chiropractor do?” For that, you will get a variety of answers. Some will say neck pain, whereas some might say something completely unexpected such as – digestive disorders. Crazy, I know. Below, I’ll explain to you why there is a huge variety of conditions Chiropractors can and will help people with.

What does a Chiropractor do in the field?

As a Chiropractor in Marietta, GA, my specialty is Upper Cervical – in particular, Orthospinology Procedures. There aren’t many of us who practice this method as our primary technique because of its complexity. It’s a sophisticated method that uses math, science, and ultra-specific radiographs to help the practitioner make the most specific corrections (adjustments) to the upper neck. Some conditions I see are: neck discomfort/pain, migraine, headaches, vertigo, scoliosis, facial pain, and more. There are conventional Chiropractors who also see these conditions, but their method or philosophy towards care may be completely different. I tend to err on the side of as few adjustments as possible. While some might say that Chiropractic care can fix all, I disagree. There are limitations of matter that cannot be helped and it’s important to keep an open mind – both patient and doctor. With that being said, let’s look into what [we] do best.

  • Our main goal is: optimizing your Central Nervous System (CNS).

Now, you might wonder to yourself, how the heck are they going to do that? This sounds like…quackery.

Truth is, your brain and spinal cord consist of your CNS. The spinal cord lives within the spinal column. Additionally, the spinal cord is a multi-lane highway. Each lane has its own function. These are called, tracts. The cord is anchored via tiny, paper-thin ligaments at various levels known as, denticulate ligaments. Think of these ligaments as anchor to a boat. Without these ligaments, the spinal cord would be moving around, causing massive disruptions and shocks to the body. Put short, your really expensive boat would float away. Now that we have our anatomy down, let’s keep moving forward.

Chiropractors adjust the spine because there could be structural shifts that occur due accident, injury, trauma, or complications during birth. When one or more of the vertebra’s misalign, or subluxate, this causes dysfunction. Pain usually follows. However, there will not always be immediate pain as the body adapts well to the external environment. It simply depends on the person and their body’s resiliency. The goal of the Chiropractor is to adjust the bone back into its normal alignment. When this occurs, pathological tension is taken away, allowing the spinal cord to communicate with the brain effectively.

Final thoughts on “What does a Chiropractor do?”

In theory and practice, there are many conditions that Chiropractors are able to help with. It extends beyond neck and back pain. Someone may come in with odd sensations and feelings, random unexplainable pains, etc. Chiropractic is a holistic form of care that uses your own body’s potential to heal itself the best possible. No drugs. No injections. Nothing artificial. It’s important that everyone be checked to see if they have a misalignment or again, subluxation. You might just be missing out on an optimized life.
