Re: advantages and disadvantages of chiropractic

The Advantages of Chiropractic Care:

Chiropractic care is non-invasive. Surgery on the joints will involve cutting, stitching and anesthetic, often for problems that could’ve been solved by external manual manipulation by a competent chiropractor.

Chiropractic care is relatively quick and inexpensive. Where a lot of medical fields rely heavily on expensive equipment and pricey prescription medicine, chiropractic care professionals use little more than their hands, keeping costs down, and all but the most serious musculoskeletal issues might be handled over just a few chiropractic care sessions.

Chiropractic care is effective on not just the musculoskeletal system, but on everything dependent upon the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. In fact, the first instance of chiropractic care in the United States was in the late 19th century, involving a patient who was complaining, not of joint or spinal aches and pains, but of deafness. His hearing troubles were cured by a chiropractor who subsequently established his own successful practice.

The Disadvantages of Chiropractic Care

It may seem that chiropractic care can do just about anything and while it is certainly versatile, there is a disadvantage in that it is also limited as it can’t address problems as severe as surgery as medicine can correct. Chiropractic care works best as a preventative measure and as a means of correcting minor to moderate irregularities in the musculoskeletal system and related areas of the body. Intensive tissue damage, injury and disease are a little beyond what chiropractic care can solve, though chiropractic care shouldn’t be ruled out as a recuperative measure after appropriate treatment has taken place.
