How Chiropractic Differs
Due to chiropractic treatments being primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only neck and back issues. While Philadelphia Chiropractor Dr. Himmelstein quickly and effectively eliminates neck and back pain, it's not his only goal. Dr. Himmelstein's objective is to make sure he helps all individiuals restore and optimize their health.
Philadelphia Chiropractor Dr. Stuart Himmelstein is primarily concerned with locating and treating vertebral subluxations.
A vertebral subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural articular (joint) change that compromises the integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.
Using a number of unique and highly refined skills, Dr. Stuart Himmelstein checks the patient's spine for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities. If any of these are detected, Dr. Himmelstein will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area.
Dr. Himmelstein uses several techniques to identify and treat these spinal abnormalities and optimize overall health. In addition to spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue techniques such as massage, dietary and nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and lifestyle modification programs are commonly employed
There are significant differences between the way chiropractors and medical doctors approach health ailments.
When evaluating and treating his patients, Philadelphia Chiropractor Dr. Himmelstein takes a holistic approach which involves identifying and correcting the cause(s) of his patient's ailment. In contrast, the medical approach tends to focus more on the treating the symptoms of a condition rather than focusing primarily on the actual cause(s).
Dr. Himmelstein believes the best course of action is correcting the cause of the problem, which provides significant long-term benefits over only treating the symptoms.
