Is Chiropractic Medicine Safe?

is chiropractic medicine safe

Are chiropractors safe?` and `Is chiropractic safe?` are questions we get on occasion at our natural healing center. Dr. Lisa Oskardmay is a licensed chiropractor with over 25 years of experience treating thousands of Triangle patients safely and effectively. At the hands of an experienced and caring professional like her and other local highly qualified Doctors of Chiropractic, chiropractic is safe. People choose chiropractic because it is a sound hands-on remedy for many of life’s aches and pains and one that is not likely to lead to harm or injury. Although chiropractic has, admittedly, been on the outskirts of medicine since its inception in 1895, adjustive therapy of the spine and extremities performed by chiropractors is here to stay because of its safety and ability to reduce pain and improve overall body posture and function. Chiropractic examination and treatment is different from traditional medicine, and it is effective and safe. Chiropractors are well trained in hands-on and verbal inspection- palpation and good listening skills go together to understand unique patient needs.

At our alternative medicine healthcare clinic, Dr. Oskardmay examines each patient’s pain area and performs spinal palpation and other diagnostic examination to determine where imbalance exists. Massage helps to relax taut, overstretched muscles, start the healing process, and remove obstacles to adjustment. The clean and sanitized treatment room exudes comfort- warmth and aromatherapy enhance relaxation so that each person can get the full benefit from a healing session.

Dr. Oskardmay utilizes various mobilization techniques to adjust vertebral subluxations and bring needed movement and better spine bone positioning. Chiropractic care is reasonable care designed to enhance the body’s natural healing response through better posture, vertebral positioning, and nerve flow conduction from the spine out. Dr. Oskardmay locates regions of spinal subluxation or vertebral malposition using skillful palpation. She touches and massages the back and neck to gentle determine areas of tight muscles, altered skin response, and sensitivity. Misaligned vertebrae indicate areas of pain and instability and muscle spasms that, once resolved, allow for qi’s free flow and other vital energies in the body. Frequently, subluxated vertebral segments correspond to different body areas and can provide diagnostic clues for additional preventive care making the chiropractic examination process supportive of health inside and out.

Before performing a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Oskardmay explains the procedure and asks for permission to adjust. She will assess the patient’s individual readiness for any particular design and proceed accordingly with appropriate techniques. During the adjustment, patients sometimes hear a small clicking sound, which can represent the release of stuck energy.

Performed by a highly trained, licensed practitioner like her, the adjustment is a very safe procedure and can provide relief where drugs and surgery haven’t.
