What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system (the muscles, bones and joints). Chiropractors, use a type of “hands-on” therapy called joint manipulation (or adjustment). During an adjustment, chiropractors use their hands to apply a controlled, force to a joint. The manipulation also stimulates the nervous system to help reduce pain and relax local musculature. It has been researched and documented that motion is restored following an adjustment but no bones are moved for this to happen. Chiropractors may also use massage and stretching to relax muscles that are shortened or in spasm. Richmond Hill Health & Wellness uses this approach to provide diagnoses, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.
