What is Chiropractic Medicine?

The medicine focuses on the relationship between the body’s structures such as muscles, skeleton and nerves and the patient’s health. Chiropractors make adjustments, especially in the spinal column to improve their patients health & quality of life.

At Bodhizone our practitioners do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures, however, they do refer patients for these services if medically indicated. Sometimes, chiropractors prescribe exercises for patients to follow at home. Chiropractors may perform diagnostic imaging, lab testing and other testing and some practice complementary medicine and nutrition.

Chiropractic care is a non-drug and non-surgical type of healthcare. Chiropractic treatment involves the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system using gentle spinal changes and manipulation.

It is a natural way to revive and correct the spine position and help to heal your physique and reduce pain.

Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe?

Chiropractic is remarkably safe and can treat various musculoskeletal pains. A New Zealand government study the treatment by a doctor of chiropractic are safe and more efficient than other surgery and drugs. The adjustments are 100 times safer than over the counter drugs or medications for the same types of pain. We can also provide gentle chiropractic care for patients with sensitive nervous systems.

Some physiological therapeutic measures often used:

ART (Active Release Technique) – This involves the chiropractor re-establishing proper motion between muscles and fascia while reducing fibrous adhesions. This is achieved by manipulation using their hands.

Weight Loss

The Graston Technique – An instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization therapy. It is beneficial in breaking up scar tissue adhesions, fascial restrictions and detecting areas of fibrosis and chronic inflammation.

Ice or Heat Treatment – The therapist alternate between ice and heat therapy to treat patients back-pain. Ice packs are used to numb the back for a 10-15 minute period before then switching to heating pads.

Massage – The chiropractic physician may massage the soft tissues to improve the circulation and reduce the inflammation and swelling associated with back pain and to encourage faster healing.

Exercise – The obstetrician provides patients with instructions for an exercise program that focuses on strengthening and stretching the back.

Diathermy/ Electrical Stimulation – This is a kind of electromagnetic therapy that passes the softer tissues and offers heat to tissues present in denser parts. It helps to relax muscles, decrease muscle spasms and thus it accelerates the healing process by increasing the circulation.

Ultrasound – This is a deep heat therapy that can be applied to joints and soft tissues. Ultrasound, can not only help to reduce back pain, spasms and stiffness, it also increases the flow of the blood and accelerates the healing process.


How a Chiropractor Diagnoses a Misalignment?

During your initial consultation with the chiropractic healthcare professional, they will ask questions to acquire understanding about your total well-being and your medical history. You’ll be asked to fill out some forms and your answers will support your chiropractor in making a prognosis.

chiropractic diagnosis

  • A Posture test is an easy way to check when the patient is sitting or standing. Improper posture leads to spinal misalignments, muscle spasms and subluxation.
  • The chiropractor observes your walk pattern. Marching or strolling in position may reveal inconsistencies between the pelvis and backbone.
  • The chiropractor measures flexibility by making you bend in distinctive directions and could help in the evaluation of stiffness and abnormal curvature of the backbone, as obvious in scoliosis.
  • In the Psoas Muscle experiment, the chiropractor gently pushes on the raised leg to determine force, ache or imbalance of the joints between the vertebrae.
  • Measuring the size and length of each leg helps the chiropractor check if there is a discrepancy in leg length. The chiropractic adjustment helps to balance the pelvis and proper leg length discrepancy.
  • Other checks may be performed by the chiropractors like a bilateral evaluation of physique weight, muscle spasm/trigger point analysis, reflexes, sensation and muscle testing.
  • Bodhizone uses the Graston Technique and the Active Release Technique for chiropractic treatment.

X-ray Diagnosis

  • The x-ray is an important diagnostic tool in chiropractic care. It allows us to see a more precise layout of the body’s interior design.
  • Since there is a harmful effect to the body by ionizing radiation the x-rays are arranged only if necessary.
  • Once a set of x-rays are taken for your spine it may be repeated to look for improvements after treatment.

MRI and CT Scans

  • If X-rays don’t furnish as vivid a picture as a chiropractor expects then Magnetic Resonance Imaging or CT Scans are suggested because it is used to study in detail the state of the bones and the other structural alignments.
  • Chiropractic care is free from any type of surgery, X-rays only allows the chiropractor to see the design of the bones in the body.
