Hands-on manipulation refers to direct contact with the spine or other problematic areas by a trained chiropractor. This method is primarily used to correct alignment issues with the spine, which can make it difficult to sit, stand, or move around comfortably. It also allows chiropractors to mitigate pain directly, without the need for invasive procedures or devices. Soft-tissue manipulation, hands-on manipulation, and chiropractic spinal alignment are a part of a portfolio of tools and treatments chiropractors regularly apply to help patients regain their mobility and reduce chronic or severe pain.
The description title of a "hands-on" treatment might cause some hesitation, but chiropractic manipulation has been a well-practiced and supported medical approach to pain management and healing spanning decades of licensed practice.
What is Involved
Chiropractic therapy is a method of treatment that compliments traditional medicine by focusing on the musculoskeletal functions located in particularly the back area or spine. While traditional medicine typically applies either surgery, pharmaceuticals, or immobilization for curing immediate problems, chiropractic manipulation adds in the ability to help the muscular and nervous system to function properly again. As the title implied, chiropractic treatment involves a contact, hands-on manipulation of the body to realign the moving parts again.
The chiropractor's goal is to reduce pain from misaligned parts and joints, improve function and mobility, and reset how the body moves. This entire biological network is a working system involving the coordination of bone, muscle, ligaments, cartilage, mobility in joints, and connecting points with tendons. When some of these parts malfunction, get injured, or stop working properly, people experience pain and loss of mobility or strength. Chiropractic hands-on manipulation therapy has helped thousands regain their normal life again.
