Are There Different Types Of Chiropractors?
Yes. There are limited scope chiropractors and wellness chiropractors. Limited scope chiropractors focus primarily on musculoskeletal issues like back pain and neck pain. Their primary focus is relief and pain reduction. Wellness chiropractors are not only concerned with pain relief, but are also focused on health and vitality. They work to identify stress patterns in the body and in the lifestyle habits that have caused these stress patterns. By identifying and releasing these stress patterns, the body is able to work more efficiently, heal faster, and remain well longer. Dr. Karen Cann at Integrative Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Solutions is a Wellness Chiropractor.
What Do Wellness Chiropractors Do?
Wellness Chiropractors are trained to ensure your nervous system is free of spinal nerve interference. They believe in whole body wellness. Your wellness chiropractor will discover any spinal nerve interference within your spinal column and correct them with specific chiropractic adjustments. Your body will then be free to heal, express itself more fully, and function at an optimal level.
Wellness Chiropractors will also educate you about how you can live a healthier life, decreasing the major stresses that caused your subluxations/misalignments, which will help prevent you from re-creating the same problems over and over. This is achieved through better posture (during work, sleep, sitting, etc.), diet and nutrition, outlook on life, range-of-motion/flexibility/balance/strengthening exercises, and rest – all leading to a higher quality of life.
