A chiropractor is a specialist that deals with the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Doctors who specialize in chiropractic Westland treatments will include relatively hard and soft techniques of exposure. Not only does a chiropractor affect the body with their arms, but they are also considered massage therapists. However, these two professions are not comparable with each other by skill level, nor on its effect on the body.

Yes, a chiropractor works with their hands like a massage therapist would. However, the therapist works with only soft tissue: kneads, rubs, strokes or taps. They do not act on the spine or joints, meaning they cannot “reduce” or “put in place.” The manipulation of the spine, including the neck, can only be performed by a chiropractor.

When should you turn to a chiropractor?

You should see a chiropractor if you suffer from any of the following:

*   Chronic headaches;
*   Dizziness caused by osteochondrosis;
*   Acute and chronic pain in the neck and back;
*   Various diseases of the spine;
*   Pain and limited mobility in the shoulders and hips; and/or
*   Posture disorders (scoliosis, kyphosis, etc.).

What happens at the chiropractor?

*   A specialist will listen to your complaint, ask about your lifestyle, study the medical information provided and, if necessary, appoint additional surveys.
*   Find indications and contraindications for treatment.
*   Conduct manual diagnostics and manual therapy sessions using the traditional techniques of exposure.

What additional testing may designate you seeing a chiropractor?

*   Clinical analysis of blood;
*   Biochemical analysis of blood;
*   X-ray examination of the spine with functional tests or joints;
*   Duplex ultrasound vessels;
*   Electromyography (EMG);
*   Computed tomography (CT) of the spine;
*   Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine;

A Westland chiropractic specialist is usually referred by a neurologist or orthopedist. However, there are some cases when a patient sees a chiropractor without a consult. This is because a chiropractic specialist not only a deep understanding of human physiology and anatomy, but also has their own methods of diagnosis, treatment, etc. And of course, he is fluent in therapy techniques.
