What is chiropractics
Chiropractic, from the greek Kheir-hand, and praktikos- action, is a practice which states the objective of maintaining and restoring human health, through the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of its functional deficiencies by focusing on the total nervous system, assuming that it controls all other systems of the human body and the anatomical structures around the components of the nerval system. It brings special attention to the spine that contains the spinal cord.
The assumption, in particular, is that the
dysfunction of the spinal cord may interfere with what they call the innate
ability of body to heal itself and that this dysfuncion is connected to
anatomical lockings, blockages or misallignments in the spinal culomn or other
structures that containe nerve channals or ganglia..
Chiropractic care is in many countries generally considered an alternative medicine, but this definition is disputed by most chiropractors. Chiropractic emphasizes manipulation (including spinal manipulation) and includes a work of counseling on "lifestyles".
The word chiropractic is related to the study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders consisting of echeletal, muscular and neural misallignments or blockages and their effects on the general state of health of humans and vertebrate animals. It is 'practiced throughout the world and is standard in some forty national jurisdictions, some of which have created university degrees for it.
Symptoms and practice
Chiropractics concider more than 250 symptoms or diagnoses to be of relevance for its use, and there are more than one hundred different chiropractical methods in use, even though a dozen of them are prevelently used.
Important in chiropractics is the diagnosis of subluxation, ie joint or segmental lesions with altered alignment, kinetic integrity and physiological function even if the contact between the articular surfaces remains intact.
Chiropractic has developed its own theoretical model of the subluxation complex, consisting of the representation of a dysfunctional motion segment and interactions pathological nerve tissues, muscles, ligaments, vascular and connective.
According to the theory, the subluxation itself will produce symptoms and can cuase seondary disorder at the place of teh subluxation or in organs innervated from that site.
It has also produced important scientific discoveries, for example in the anatomy of the sacroiliac joint, the vertebral facet joints, the intervertebral foramen ], the nuchal ligament .
Chiropractic treatment techiques
The prevailing therapeutic act, performed by chiropractors, is the manipulative techique called correction, also called the adjustment, consisting in manual handling with coordinated forces, levers, direction, amplitude and speed on specific joints and adjacent tissues in order to realligne the site to normal anatomical structure an physiologal functions.
The manipulation is performed generally gentle and painless with the use of the bare hands, of instruments and of special arrangements to keep the patient in a effective theraputic position.
What is treated with chiropractics
Chiropractic treatment is indicated by pain and functional disturbances in the spinal culomn, back joints and muscles hwrw these symptoms can be attributed to some anatomical misallignment, stiffness or functional blockage.
Chiropractics also deal with complaintof symptoms not residing in the spinal culumn, sheleton, joints or muscles, but may be connected to such problems or may respond to the same techiques, like some herat conditions, some conditions in the digestive system and some genitourinary conditions.
Some chiropractors are particularly oriented to disease prevention and health promotion in general, apply methods of treatment of mental and physical wellbeing of patients .
The chiropractic spinal adjustments are generally contraindicated in cases of hypoplastic epistropheus tooth, bone odontoid instability, acute fracture, spinal cord tumor, osteomyelitis, septic column tuberculosis, cancer of the meninges, or spinal hematoma intracanalicolare, malignant tumors spread to the spinal column, frank disc herniation with progressive neurologic deficit, basal invagination of the upper cervical spine, Arnold-Chiari malformation of the upper cervical spine, dislocation of vertebra, aneurysmal bone cyst, giant cell tumor, osteoid osteoma or osteoblastoma, neoplastic disease of muscle or soft tissue, syringomyelia, hydrocephalus, diastematomielia, cauda equina syndrome, congenital hypermobility, positive signs of Kernig or Lhermitte, and the presense of artifacts of fixation or stabilization .
In all other cases, chiropractic manipulations and
corrections are usually indicated and safe . Adverse reactions or complications
related to chiropractic maneuvers would be extremely rare .
