Choosing to use a chiropractor can sometimes be a fearsome task. We’ve all been there.
Perhaps you have a parent that calls all chiropractors “quacks” or “voodoo medicine”.
Maybe you have been told that chiropractic can ruin your back or that chiropractors are not real doctors.
Today, we’d like to address the truth behind Chiropractic Care and put your fears to rest.
Chiropractic is a natural method and approach to healing from acute or chronic back conditions.
In a world where medicines are overprescribed and even our water supply has chemicals, a chiropractor should come with a sense of relief for those that value the more simple approaches (and possibly more affective) to healing.
Chiropractors unite with the bodies natural methods of healing and use practiced techniques that have shown results for well over 100 years.
Chiropractic care falls under the category of complimentary or alternative health care for chronic and acute conditions.
Many first time chiropractic patients come to us to relieve pain in the lower back, treat sciatica, whiplash injuries, neck pain or even migraines.
You may be surprised to find that our Wexford Chiropractor (as with all chiropractic doctors) are concerned with your overall health and not just one part of you.
You see, Chiropractic doctors understand that the WHOLE BODY is affected and interactive with all of its parts.
A perfect example of something a chiropractor might work on you with can be discussed in talking about knee pain.
If you look to find knee pain relief and you do to a traditional health care doctor, it is likely that he or she will take xrays and prescribe medication. They may or may not mention that you have a weight problem and this is adding to your pain.
A Chiropractor, on the other hand, not only will take xrays to understand the physical components of your problem, but will also assess your health habits and any other contributing factors to your knew problem.
We’ve seen it time and time again that traditional doctors are often times more likely to offer a prescription for pain killers to alleviate the pain but not address the entire problem.
Our Wexford Chiropractor, in this example, would utilize his Doctoral degree to not only help you regain function with your knee, but would also take a look at natural methods and supplementation to help your body NATURALLY reboot. This would include nutrition consultation as well.
What you put in your body everyday (food) is highly important and can most definitely impact your pain symptoms.

Wexford Chiropractic – Your First Visit

This evaluation includes a consultation that will discuss your past history, physical examine, lab tests (when appropriate), X-Ray exam and more.
The spine will get special attention because it is, afterall, the highway to all other parts of your body and may very likely be a large part of your problem.
Wexford Chiropractor = NO Back Surgery
As stated, one of the main objectives of a chiropractor is to help your body regain it’s natural ability to heal and recover.
A large range of chiropractic techniques are used to correctly locate any vertebral problems or misalignments that may be affecting your spine and overall body sensations.
Manual adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation (to release tension on the joints or bones), ultrasound or massage may all be used to help increase circulation and flexibility along with proper alignment.
Pharmaceutical drugs are NOT used and chiropractors do not use invasive surgery.
Natural methods of healing the back and body is the main focus of the chiropractic doctor. A chiropractor works to increase the body’s ability to communicate properly within all body parts. This, in turn, helps the body cells, organs, tissues and systems to communicate more efficiently.
