Chiropractic Physicians Terms to Know

As you may be aware, chiropractic physicians can be found all over the United States. These doctors specialize in misaligned joints, spinal alignment, and therapy for back pain. Unlike an MD or medical doctor, chiropractors are DCs or doctors of chiropractic therapy. Some of the conditions these professionals address are carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pains, sore lower back, and joint injury. If you take a look at the list of helpful terms below, you may expand your knowledge of this field.

  • Activator Adjusting Instrument – This is basically a handheld instrument that is commonly used by DC experts or chiropractors. Similar to a mallet, it is used to carefully tap misaligned vertebrae back into place. Not all physicians and MDs agree with the use of this tool.
  • Grostic Procedure – An upper cervical technique that is used to detect any misalignments between the skull and the atlas. This way the right adjustment can then be made to correct a stiff neck or sore back. Pressure is placed on the side of the neck.
  • Locked Spinal Joint – A sudden binding that sometimes occurs when two joint surfaces are moved out of alignment. This condition is often triggered by an odd movement, which causes a muscle spasm.
  • Lumbosacral Strain – This refers to a ligament injury or joint strain that occurs at the base of the spine. It can mean a strained disk, and can lead to lower back pain. Disk degeneration is also a possibility with this type of injury.
  • Subluxation – The partial or incomplete dislocation of a joint. This means the bony surfaces do not face each other properly at a certain joint, but do remain partially aligned. This typically shows up in x-rays.

    If you are suffering from muscle injury such as back pain or neck pain, you may want to look into chiropractors in your area. A chiropractic doctor focuses on preventative and responsive treatment of the spine. Chiropractors are also known as doctors of chiropractic (DC) or chiropractic physicians. Generally, you should visit your regular doctor first, and your MD may refer you to a chiropractor. Though chiropractors do not hold traditional MD, or medical doctor, certification they are required to get a PhD like other physicians and doctors. This training and certification allows you to be confident in a chiropractor's ability to treat pain and chiropractic ailments. Most DC offices offer a variety of services including massage therapy, emergency medicine, and the treatment of simple ailments such as a stiff neck or sore lower back. They may also have preventative care suggestions and help you learn simple exercises and best health programs to keep your back and muscles in good working order. When you visit a chiropractor, you can expect your doctor to give you a routine exam and test you for some common ailments such as carpal tunnel, which can be caused during an accident or from stressing certain joints. In extreme situations, carpal tunnel may be treated by surgeon. To find a local chiropractor, check with the American Chiropractic Association, or the AMA, which is a professional association for accredited chiropractic offices. You can also get recommendations from friends and family, local medical reviews or your regular physician to find the DC that is right for you.
