Mixer Chiropractic Approach To Treatment

Chiropractic, a complementary and alternative health care profession is based on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, their effects on the nervous system, and on overall health. Chiropractors deal with spinal joint misalignments, which chiropractors call vertebral subluxations that can interfere with the nervous system and result in various conditions of diminished health.

Chiropractic Can Be Classified Into Three Main Categories:

  • Straight
  • Mixer
  • Reform
Mixer chiropractors "mix" diagnostic and treatment approaches from osteopathic, medical, and chiropractic domains. Mixers believe that subluxation is one of primary causes of disease, and they incorporate medical diagnostics and employ various treatments such as conventional techniques of physical therapy such as exercise, massage, and moist heat, along with nutritional supplements, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal remedies, and biofeedback. Mixers are open to mainstream medicine and from the majority group. They believe that diseases can develop due to other factors such as bacteria and viruses. According to them, subluxations affect the health by lowering resistance to illness. The deviation or malposition of a spinal vertebra can cause neurological imbalance within the body, resulting in lowered resistance.

Mixers encompass the majority of practitioners. Their approach extends beyond the narrow focus on vertebral subluxation. They apply varied range of modalities as well as concepts from diverse health care traditions in their practice. Many integrate methods from other traditions.

Below Mentioned Are Some Of The Integrated Methods From Other Traditions:

  • Nutritional supplementation, vitamins, homeopathic drugs, and nutritional advice
  • Chinese medicine
  • Ayurveda
  • Naturopathy
  • Homeopathy
  • Massage or bodywork
  • Mind/body approaches
Chiropractors integrate different treatment plans in addition to regular chiropractic spine maneuvering techniques to help set right subluxations. Mixer chiropractors use various diagnostic tools including ultrasound and other techniques to confirm disorder.

Mixers are more accepted in the main stream because of their rational approach towards the root of illness and illness. Mixers adopt treatment approaches from different view points in the medical community and amalgamate them to meet their patients' needs.

Mixing chiropractors are the tributaries formed out of straight movement. This approach originated from naturopathic, osteopathic, medical, and even chiropractic doctors who attended the Palmer College of Chiropractic and then gave a new definition to the treatment system to include more diagnostic and treatment approaches. They eventually split from the traditional straight group and formed various other chiropractic schools including the National College of Chiropractic.
