Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug-free form of healthcare focused on relieving disorders in the nervous and musculoskeletal systems, while improving general health and wellness. Typically patients see chiropractors for neuromusculoskeletal complaints like back pain, neck pain, headache, joint problems, or pain in the arms, legs, and hands.
Chiropractors use chiropractic adjustments, sometimes referred to as spinal manipulation, to restore mobility in the restricted joints of the spine after tissue injury. During an adjustment, chiropractors use their hands or an instrument to apply precise, gentle force to a specific areas of the spine. This technique is often accompanied by spinal mobilization, massage therapy, and exercise rehabilitation. Time and time again, we've seen firsthand how this integrated treatment approach is effective for our Estero patients with musculoskeletal problems. The effectiveness of chiropractic care for a number of musculoskeletal conditions has been repeatedly confirmed by medical studies.
