What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic in Orchard Park NY

Simply put, Chiropractic is a profession. Chiropractic is not a treatment. Chiropractic has grown to be one of the largest conservative healthcare professions in the world- for good reason. The typical drug cocktail and surgery approach has failed millions of people. Chiropractors in Orchard Park offer a mechanical fix to mechanical problems. Chemical solutions (Drugs) only mask symptoms of mechanical problems. Surgery can be extremely risky and should only be a last resort when all else fails.

Chiropractors offer safe, effective treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, without risk of addiction or harmful side effects.


Treatments Offered by Orchard Park Chiropractors

The most common treatment offered by chiropractors is spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation, often referred to as an adjustment, involved applying a force to a specific joint to cause a change within the joint and the surrounding tissues. An adjustment can be performed on any joint- hands, wrists, shoulders, ankles, knees, etc. This has been proven to decrease pain and increase the motion of the joint. Chiropractors restore function. Dr. Nicholas Fuhrmann, Orchard Park chiropractor prides himself in restoring function, reducing pain and getting his patients results.

This is a very controversial statement, especially within the chiropractic community: Your spine does not become misaligned. Chiropractors do NOT align your spine. Joints often do become restricted or stuck as a result of car accidents, work injuries, trauma, poor posture, sports injuries or poor body mechanics. Restoring motion to restricted joints restores the ability of the joint to function and relieves pain.

Dr. Nicholas Fuhrmann, Orchard Park Chiropractor at Fuhrmann Health Center uses chiropractic manipulative therapy when there is a restricted or stuck joint. This is only one tool of many available for a chiropractor to use. Spinal decompression, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue therapies, modalities such as cold laser, KT taping, mechanical massage, vibration and electro-stim are also effective options for musculoskeletal conditions.

Chiropractors are considered physicians by Medicare. Chiropractors have the ability to diagnose and treat. No referral is needed to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors spend on average 7-8 years in school. Dr. Fuhrmann earned his B.S. in Biology and D.C. Doctor of Chiropractic in 8 years at D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY. Chiropractors are required to be well versed in human anatomy & physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, radiology / diagnostic imaging and clinical skills. Chiropractors unfortunately do not have a residency program like medical doctors. Instead, chiropractors are required to go through at least 1 year of internship prior to graduating. Chiropractors must pass 4 national board exams before they can apply for licensure from the state.
