Anderson, DC Which Chiropractic Technique is Right for You? Chiropractic, simply stated, is the healing art that is mainly concerned with the proper function of the joints and muscles of the body. In the body, improper function leads to pain or other sylnptoms; when the dysfunction is corrected, the symptoms stop. Chiropractors use a variety of methods or techniques to correct function. Some use their hands, others use hand-held devices and still others use special tables to correct the body's misalignments. Most Chiropractors utilize one main technique, often believing that "their" technique is the best. However, there are approximately 100 different techniques and all of these are beneficial. My belief is that because we are all individuals, we will all benefit from a different approach, an approach customized to each of us. Rather than try to make every person fit into one technique, I have chosen to utilize numerous techniques so that each individual's needs can be met. This allows for more treatment variation between each individual. In addition to better results, there is another benefit to utilizing multiple techniques; comfort. Many people fear certain chiropractic techniques and this fear is well-founded. For example, certain techniques that are appropriate for a 20-year-old may not be appropriate for a person in their 60s. This example is one I come across regularly. Many of the seniors in our community are unaware that there are techniques that are "low force" and are very comfortable. On the flip side, a 25- year-old 250 lb. male may not receive as much benefit if treated using the same techniques as a 65-year-old female who weighs 100 lbs. At my office, we try to meet the needs of the individual. If you have a health problem that concerns you, you may receive benefit from ChiropraCtic. But if you have heard it "hurts," you may be hesitant to give it a try. Give us a call; you will be surprised. If I think 1 can help you, we will formulate a plan that doesn't hurt to help you get well. After all, if you go to a dentist and it hurts, why not find a dentist that doesn't hurt; or do you just stop going to dentist for good? Anderson Chiropractic is currently accepting new patients.
