Another form of conservative care that helps to treat different ailments and injuries is chiropractic care. Many people hear different rumors about chiropractic and that it may be non-beneficial. We’re here to correct these rumors and tell you about the new chiropractic services offered here at Hohman.
Doctors of Chiropractic are trained physicians that are able to diagnosis and treat musculoskeletal complaints of the spine and extremities of patients. Chiropractors must undergo 7.5 years of school prior to becoming a licensed physician (4 year bachelors, 3.5 years of graduate course work) similar to that of other health professionals. Courses of study include in-depth Anatomy and Physiology, Neurology, Biochemistry, diagnosis as well as numerous other courses.
Chiropractors use a variety of techniques and treatments to help with musculoskeletal complaints. Some of the most common techniques include: Chiropractic Manipulation (CMT), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (See our other blog post on IASTM), passive modalities such as Heat, Electrical Stimulation or more active type therapies such as Therapeutic Exercise or Neuromuscular Re-education.
