** The body's structure, especially the spine, and the body's functions are closely intertwined and this relationship affects overall health
Chiropractic is an alternative medicine discipline that focuses on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the musculoskeletal system's disorders. This practice is based on the theory that all living parts of our body contain innate or inborn intelligence. That is to say that such alternative medicine parts have the ability to organize, maintain, and heal themselves. This innate intelligence acts through the nervous system to heal the body. The chiropractic discipline cures the diseases of our body by aligning the spine through adjustment. It removes all interferences to the functioning of the nervous system, thereby enabling the nervous system to heal our body.
Chiropractor offer physical rehabilitation in addition to spinal manipulation which is the primary method of chiropractic procedures treatment in a chiropractic clinic. Most Doctors of Chiropractic actually undergo specialized training in physical therapy, offered by the school and other post-graduate courses. The chiropractic student must pass a physical therapy exam required by the National Board Of Examiners.
Some doctors of chiropractic rely heavily on instrumentation while others are more manual, in essence, they use their hands to perform an adjustment, while others combine both. The term mixer has become synonymous with a chiropractor who uses other therapeutic modalities in addition to the chiropractic adjustment. The one's who use only the hand chiropractic procedures adjustment that is strictly to the spine, are considered to be a purist or "straight chiropractor". The feud still stands today between the "straights and mixers'. The fact of the matter is that both are helping and serving people to live better more healthier lives.

Many people seek chiropractic care in lieu of surgery, or simply because they have pain which may be brought on by stress or physical injury. This may be chronic low-back pain, neck pain, headaches or other pain related health conditions such as fibromyalgia. Although chiropractic is not a treatment for any one disease or condition, if there is a misalignment, chiropractic may help a body's healing ability. Because chiropractic is a natural, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment it is wise to consider chiropractic for any of these pain related issues and definitely before undergoing any surgery for such problems.
Chiropractic care combined with physical therapy are amongst the best natural ways for pain management. On many occasions, chiropractic-treatment allows patients to avoid surgery. Those patients who are afraid of surgical procedures, in many instances, by consulting a good chiropractor can choose to avoid it. Based on the patient's clinical presentation, the chiropractic doctor may choose whether to treat conservatively with chiropractic care or refer out to surgery. Dr James Farley NJ has worked long and hard at his knowledge and precision to which he applies to each and every patient.
One of the primary staples of physical therapy is to provide specific exercises for the patient in order to restore biomechanical function of the joints, this is done by stretches, stabilization exercises, core strengthening and other core stabilization exercises. A lot of chiropractic doctors as well as physical therapists use a stability ball, medicine ball, and or a wobble board to assist with balance and coordination.
** Treatment aims to rectify this relationship between structure and function enabling the body to do what it does naturally, heal itself
Some chiropractic procedures can even be traced back to ancient times. Chiropractic alternative medicine is based on three key concepts:
A chiropractor who is well-trained in physical therapy may offer therapies such as: ice, heat and electric stimulation, whirlpool, paraffin wax and others. Besides physical rehabilitation, the main objective of the chiropractor is to provide spinal manipulation or adjustments. The aim is to restore proper alignment of the spinal structures hence decreasing nerve pressure and irritation. This provides pain relief, increase mobility, and an overall sense of well-being. Some doctors offer spinal decompression as a treatment for the relief of pain related to disc injuries. Spinal decompression has proven effective for bulging and herniation of the discs, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal), and others.
