Woodstock has one or more chiropractic clinics. A chiropractic is a profession whereby the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system is carried out. This is classified as alternative or complementary medicine. They offer help for a range of bone and muscle related chronic problems, or injury management. Some of the problems a chiropractic can help deal with, includes neck pain, back injury, disc pain, sports injuries, whiplash, pinched nerves, headches, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis and sciatica, among others. The central idea of this practice is joint adjustment as near normal function as possible. The healthcare professional is trained in restoring the alignment and structure of the injured or suboptimally performing part of the neuromusculoskeletal system, namely joints. Treatment is usually done by a quick thrust applied to a vertebra. This helps regain the correct position, movement or both. The adjustment can be maintained by additional treatments, such as massage, physical therapy, stretching exercises, or strengthening exercises. These may also be available in Woodstock. The more severe or chronic the problem, the longer treatment plan. Insurance may or may not cover the costs of chiropractic treatment.
