When it comes to diagnosis and treatment, physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists professional partners that by pooling their knowledge and experience can help to achieve the best possible results. Chiropractor doing the same manner as the doctor a general survey of the back and then submits a plan for further treatment. Often supplemented by an X-ray. The treatment is such manipulation of the joints ("crack" in the back) and back training. Manipulation is achieved by the joint to be moved towards the current extreme position whereby it makes a quick and easy compression.

Chiropractor is a specialist in the nervous system and muscle and joint function - especially in relation to the back where the chiropractor is primarily looking for what is called 'subluxation' which means: one part is not in its correct position relative to its surroundings. A subluxed part has a decreased mobility. The link can at worst be locked and in such cases the situation is very painful. When these 'subluxations' is found, put the joints into place using special hand grip - also called adjustment or manipulation.

Chiropractic can relieve acute pain, for example, backache with severe low back pain that makes it difficult to move (lumbago). In some cases, the back pain radiation into and out of the buttock of the pin (sciatica). Acute back pain often disappears by days to weeks but may continue for a longer period. It is not certain that the acute back pain will disappear in a short time and may require treatment. Chiropractic treatment also has good power relative to muscle and joint pain, low back pain (torte pelvis), neck problems such as whiplash, neck hold, and dizziness (vertigo).
Sciatica is a popular term for leg pain, and does not necessarily touch the sciatic nerve and is a classic example of a severe subluxation, which is a locking of the last lumbar vertebra over the sacrum or the joint between the acetabulum and sacrum. Approximately 80% of the pain occurring in the leg is associated pain, either from the back, pelvis or hip. In rare cases, there is pressure on the nerve. Chiropractic treatment and training have a good effect on sciatica.
Low back pain
Lumbar, facet joints syndrome, lumbago: Keep in the back has many names, but the mechanism behind it is the same: a mild irritation of the small joints of the lumbar spine and / or a crack in one of the dorsal cartilage slices. This leads to poor movement and pain in the back. Often the irritation followed by tension in the muscles (a kind of protection mechanism), and therefore easily created a vicious cycle of pain from both the muscles and joints. The pain can be constant or stabbing and is located on the lower back possibly with radiation to the buttock or leg. Often relieves easy movement while sitting a long time or position shift increases the pain. Typically the pain is worst in the morning but improves during the day. Chiropractic treatment and training have a good effect on low back pain.
Pregnant and chiropractic
Also as pregnant with a sore back, neck or perhaps headache, it is possible to remedy pain through manipulation. The hormonal changes during pregnancy causes a greater laxity in the joints and thus also in the pelvis. Pregnancy burden on the body and as for any load the body is exposed, there is a risk that the joints and muscles out of balance. When your stomach starts to grow alter the body's center of gravity of the load on the spine and posterior small joints increases. Pregnant women typically get worse over the lower portion of the lower back or between shoulder blades. Oftentimes, a locking of the joints in the pelvis or spine, the pain, chiropractic treatment can often be overcome. By manipulating the treatment of pregnant women therefore taken into account that the joints are looser than normal - ie the treatment adjusted.
Osteoarthritis is an almost inevitable part of life, but some are affected in a relatively early age. Sports injuries, failure stress and genetics are factors that can accelerate the process. The areas most affected are the hands, neck, back, hips and knees. The pain comes from the joint where the cartilage is degraded, and from secondary muscle tension. The typical symptoms are pain and stiffness in the joint. Starting pain (stiffness) is often the first sign, gradually developing pain under load and eventually experienced also at rest. Chiropractic combined with ease of movement of the wrist such as cycling or swimming is a good palliative and preventive effect, but does not remove the existing osteoarthritis. In cases of severe osteoarthritis, surgery may be necessary.
Reactions after a manipulation treatment
Some will find that they feel better after just one treatment, and that pain and discomfort immediately diminished. Others will feel a steadily progressive improvement of symptoms. Some brands actually a worsening of pain in early and feel improvement after only a few treatments. When considering this is a very common reaction that briefly become sore in the area where you have been treated. However, there is no reason for concern, the reaction is usually very short. The goal of manipulation therapy is just that the body "is treated back" to a normal state, and it requires that the chiropractor corrects where the problems are. It is the body reacts. It is difficult to generalize about the number of treatments, and if you have a chronic problem, there will be a lengthy process.
