What is Chiropractic? [pronounced 'kiro-practic']
Dr. Anthony Silva DC is a board certified Chiropractic doctor in the field of Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation.
The area of outpatient, or ambulatory, care of patients (like Dr. Silva's practice), treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain is growing rapidly. The vast majority of musculoskeletal or orthopaedic problems that present to the physician's office do not require surgery. The diagnosis and treatment of these types of injuries is best termed 'Physical medicine'.
There are many conditions which a Chiropractor evaluates and treats. Severe neurologic injury, such as spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury and many other neurological diseases are managed in a hospital-based rehabilitation setting. A Chiropractic Doctor may also oversee the rehabilitation of cardiac, pulmonary and cancer patients, in addition to amputation, musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain. A wide range of therapists are utilized along with assistive devices such as wheelchairs and orthotic/prosthetic devices. To assist in diagnosis and management, a Chiropractor also relies on electromyography (EMG) and a variety of imaging studies such as x-ray, CT scan and MRI scan to further enhance diagnosis and treatment of options. Chiropractors do not perform surgery.
A variety of treatment approaches can be utilized by the Chiropractor, including physiotherapy, treatment modalities, therapeutic exercise, Supplements, a variety of Adjustment Techniques, manual therapy, orthotics and modification of activities at work and home. All treatment options, or any combination, may be utilized to treat a problem. The ultimate goal in treatment is to treat the person's pain and to improve function during daily activities as quickly as possible, whether it be work or an active lifestyle.
