What is Chiropractic and What Does it Treat?

We strongly believe that if more people were accurately informed about the positive health effects of chiropractic care, more people would use it. Unfortunately, for too many people it is a medical treatment only for those who have recently been in a car accident and hurt their neck, or have a sports-related injury that has left them with a bad back. Many people don’t understand that we throw our bodies out of alignment every day and damage our nervous systems simply by doing things like texting, sitting at a computer, and driving. Sometimes just our posture can be negatively affecting the alignment of our spine, which then affects all other functions of the nervous system.

So what is chiropractic treatment?

This kind of holistic approach to healthcare can be significantly more effective than medications in treating pain. But it also works to improve your general wellbeing rather than an isolated injury or ailment. The term “chiropractic” means “done by hand.” While there are spinal adjustments and massage therapy involved in the treatment, those are not the only approaches used.
At Coastal Chiropractic Rehab & Wellness Center we also incorporate factors such as nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice to ensure that all of our loyal Seminole patients are getting the best experience from visiting our office. We don’t just look at one problem area—we focus on the whole picture.

What is chiropractic used to treat?

Again, if you are someone who has thought it is only for those with a specific problem/ache in their back, neck or spine, think again. While these are essential components of what chiropractors look at, this kind of healthcare is also used to treat a wide variety of ailments and conditions such as:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
