Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care uses gentle, noninvasive hands-on techniques to support your body’s natural healing process. 

Chiropractors focus on the spine and the joints and their connection to your nervous system and use noninvasive techniques to improve alignment, movement, and health. 

The bones that make up your spine protect your spinal cord, which is part of your central nervous system. Your spinal cord has spinal nerves that exit the spine and travel to all of the organs and tissues in your body, serving as a line of communication between your body and brain.

Problems that affect your spine affect the nervous system. Chiropractic care addresses how changes in spinal alignment interfere with communication between your body and brain. Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation to restore this communication and health.

What happens during a chiropractic care evaluation?

Your initial chiropractic care evaluation at Manhattan Medicine is a comprehensive exam that focuses on your whole health, not your painful condition or injury. 

During the evaluation, your chiropractor reviews your symptoms, including the location and type of pain you feel, as well as the activities that make it worse. They also ask about your medical history and daily routine, including exercise habits, usual diet, and stressors.

Your chiropractor does a physical exam and may request imaging tests such as X-rays or an MRI to confirm a diagnosis.
