Corrective chiropractic care, better known as corrective chiropractic or chiropractic rehabilitation, is a specialized technique within the field of chiropractic care with emphasis on identifying and addressing the underlying factors of musculoskeletal problems, instead of just providing short relief for symptoms.

Corrective chiropractic care aims to correct structural misalignments, imbalances, and dysfunctions in the spine and other joints of the body, for the purpose of improving proper alignment, function, and movement. Chiropractors who perform corrective care generally use spinal adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, and other therapeutic techniques altogether to achieve these goals.

The following are some key principles and features of corrective chiropractic care:

  • Comprehensive Assessment: Our corrective chiropractors execute a full assessment of the patient’s musculoskeletal system, in addition to postural analysis, neurological scans, movement assessments, and sometimes diagnostic imaging (such as X-rays or MRI scans). These are done to identify any underlying structural abnormalities or functional imbalances.
  • Individualized Treatment Plans: Based on the assessment findings, our corrective chiropractor will formulate a personalized treatment plan tailor-made to the patient’s particular needs. The plan may comprise several sessions of adjustments, exercises, stretches, and other interventions designed to manage the identified problems and encourage healing.
  • Spinal Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulations, are a distinctive feature of corrective chiropractic care. These manual techniques include applying regulated pressure to certain joints in the spine or other areas of the body to correct alignment, regain mobility, and relieve pain. The adjustments are generally executed by hand or with the use of specialized instruments.
  • Corrective Exercises: Our corrective chiropractors usually prescribe certain exercises and stretches to patients in order to strengthen weak muscles, improve flexibility, and promote proper movement patterns. The exercises are typically performed both in-office and at home to uphold the corrective process and reinforce long-term outcomes.
  • Patient Education: Our corrective chiropractors emphasize importance on educating patients concerning their condition, proper posture, ergonomics, and lifestyle modifications that can expedite healing and prevent future problems. Empowering patients with knowledge and self-care strategies is considered an integral part of the corrective care approach.

It must be emphasized that corrective chiropractic care is highly recommended for individuals with chronic or recurring musculoskeletal issues like chronic back pain, poor posture, sports injuries, or conditions like scoliosis to name a few. However, the personalized treatment approach may vary based on the chiropractor’s expertise and the specific needs of the patient.
