Mattingly Chiropractic – Chiropractic Treatment Center

Chiropractic treatment has been used as an alternative therapy for thousands of years – in fact, it is one of the oldest medical/nutrition practices known to man. Chiropractic is an alternative, non-invasive complementary and medicinal science that deals primarily with the diagnosis and prevention of mechanical ailments of the skeletal system, particularly the back. Chiropractors perform diagnosis, and treatment relevant to the spine and skeletal system of patients, as well as the musculoskeletal structure of the body.

Chiropractic doctors and dentists use a diverse range of medical equipment, many of which are not available to chiropractors other than X-rays, computerized tomography (CT) scans, and MRIs. This is why most chiropractors do not receive the same level of training with most other doctors and dentists. Many states require that chiropractors acquire some sort of formal education before they can practice professionally, although in many countries chiropractic treatment is not recognized as a complementary medical treatment.
In recent years, the chiropractic treatment for the spine has received increased attention and interest, especially because of the growing number of people who suffer from a combination of musculoskeletal problems like back pain and whiplash, as well as neurological disorders like stroke and diabetes. Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation, often combined with manual therapy, in order to correct alignment problems in the spinal column, as well as realigning the soft tissues of the spine and neck. In addition to spinal manipulation, some chiropractors perform massage therapy on their patients. Manipulation, in combination with spinal manipulation, is a very powerful treatment, which can improve overall neuromusculoskeletal function, reduce inflammation, speed the healing process of injured soft tissues, and stimulate overall health.
