#Chiropractic is a large and varied profession. There are at lest 100 different types of chiropractic adjusting techniques used world wide. The typically, chiropractor utilize 8 to 10 different techniques in there practice. It is in this way that chiropractors can approach many different problems.
All chiropractors uses these different approaches to with similar intents in mind. The universal goal of most chiropractic care is to restore or to improve joint function, with the end result of resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Some chiropractic techniques use minimal directed force often referred to as spinal manipulation, while others spinal mobilization, a series of gentle force procedures designed to free up the joints so they move on there own.
Diversified technique or the high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust is one of chiropractic more traditional forms of adjusting the spine. Newer approaches typically are variation from an existing technique and as they evolve they are often often named after the Doctor who developed that particular approach.
This is my experience as a chiropractor in the Kingston and Wilkes-Bare for over 10 years. It is not always pain free and it often takes time but it is very safe and effective. The safety of chiropractic is discuses in a recent articular on the Chironexus website. “Chiropractic care has successfully relieved patients of spinal pain for over a hundred years, and a new study shows that chiropractic is not only effective, it’s safe.” There is a recent study performed in Australia where the effects of a chiropractic adjustment were compared to sham adjustments. and it was found that “The majority of patients did not experience any adverse events, regardless of whether or not they were treated with chiropractic or sham interventions.” This indicates that chiropractic adjustments are as safe as someone just putting there hands on you (a sham adjustment) but the health benefits are fare reaching and beneficial. This study indicates that chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-invasive way to relive low back as well as other spinal pain.
Sciatica describes pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest single nerve in the human body; It runs from each side of the lower spine through deep muscles in the buttock and back of the thigh, and all the way to the foot.

Feb. 28, 2011 — Fever may be beneficial when it comes to fighting infection, according to new advice from pediatricians.
New guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics urge parents to recognize fever as a sign that the body is working to fight infection and not something to be feared.
Instead, they say the main goal of treating fever in children should be to keep them comfortable while watching for any signs of serious illness rather than focusing on keeping their temperature within a “normal” range.
“Fever makes many parents do whatever they can to bring their child’s fever down into a normal range. Fever is not a danger itself; it usually is a benefit,” Henry Bernstein, MD, chief of general pediatrics at the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, says in an email.
“Parents need to know that fever is not something to fear, but more of a friend that shows the body is fighting the infection.”
Exercise is an element found in almost every back and neck pain
treatment plan. Proper exercise can improve flexibility, increase

other treatments. However, exercise isn’t easy and it’s important for
back pain patients to do the right kind of exercises given their
specific back conditions.
After a car accident neck pain is one of the primary complaints. This is due to the fact the the head weighs around 10 lbs and during acceleration and deceleration that can create a lot of force on some of the smaller muscles and ligaments of the body, the result is whiplash and neck pain. After a whiplash injury, it is fairly common for people to suffer from chronic neck pain and back pain. During a chiropractic examination certain factors in a patient’s history an physical exam can be used to evaluate for this possibility. This process will help the chiropractor identify the patient who is at risk of developing chronic pain resulting from a whiplash injury, so that aggressive preventative measures can be taken.
At Mahler family Chiropractic Center, in Kingston Pa, the general approach to managing a patient’s chiropractic treatment is critical to the success of preventing chronic pain from a whiplash injury.

After This the focus shifts toward restoration of the function of the patients joints and muscles using both active and passive therapy procedures. This also means helping the patient return to work, home and recreational activities as soon as possible. The transition back to these activities is often gradual and takes time. It is important for the chiropractor to get the patient back to these activities even if the patient is not sure that he or she can engage in them fully.
It is important that the patient gets back to normal activities and restoring the patients confidence after a whiplash injury is an important part of the chiropractor s job and also important for rehabilitation.
Exercise, both for the purpose of correcting faulty movement patterns and instability, and for general fitness, is important in this effort to treat a whiplash injury.
Teaching the patient that hurt does not necessarily mean harm and the nature of chronic pain means placing focus on those activities the patient can do, rather than those they can not perform. This is a major part of treating chronic pain and in disability prevention after a whiplash injury. At Mahler Family Chiropractic Center we integrate the strategies explained above to develop the most effective approach for recovering from a whiplash injury and preventing future episodes of back pain.
