The Differences of Chiropractic & Allopathic Healthcare - El Paso Chiropractor


Immediately after an individual develops painful symptoms due to direct trauma from an injury or an underlying condition, the first course of action should be to receive a proper diagnosis to determine the source of their pain and discomfort to follow up with treatment. Just as there are a wide variety of injuries and conditions, several medical approaches are available to provide comfort and relief to the affected individual.

When it comes to making the proper health care decision nowadays, allopathic medicine and holistic medicine are two different forms of treatment that are widely considered by the general population. Finding the best, most appropriate healthcare option for any type of complication is essential, but many often question the expertise of these varying practitioners. While allopathic and holistic approaches can differ greatly from the other, both systems are frequently used to satisfy the main concerns involving the effectiveness and speed of eliminating painful symptoms. The two offer different benefits and approaches for treating the numerous injuries and conditions people are affected by.

Allopathic and Holistic Medicine


Allopathic medicine refers to the system of medical practice which focuses on the use of pharmacologically active agents or physical interventions, such as the use of drugs or surgery, to treat and eliminate symptoms of injury, pathophysiologic processes of disease and conditions. Holistic medicine refers to the system of healthcare that emphasizes on naturally, treating the whole person to achieve optimal health and wellness, such as chiropractic treatment, rather than solely treating the single injury, condition and their symptoms.

Although many people commonly turn to more conventional, allopathic treatments for relief of their symptoms, holistic approaches, particularly chiropractic treatment, have progressively become more popular as an alternative, treatment option.

Holistic Chiropractic


Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system as well as the effects and symptoms of these on the individual’s overall health. Chiropractic treatment is most frequently used to treat complications relating to the spine, including but not limited to neck pain, back pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, headaches and nerve injuries or neuropraxia. Once the individual has been properly diagnosed, a chiropractor may use a variety of manual manipulation techniques to ease and treat the symptoms associated with a specific injury or condition. Spinal adjustments are the primary techniques used by a chiropractor, but spinal decompression therapy even stretches and exercises may be used to speed up the rehabilitation process. Through the use of chiropractic care, a chiropractor can gradually correct numerous spinal complications by eliminating irritation and inflammation on the affected areas, restoring the body’s original flexibility and mobility as well as allowing it to heal itself naturally.

How Chiropractic Works 

Furthermore, chiropractic treatment can provide relief without the use of prescription medications and their side-effects while avoiding invasive treatments like surgery.

When it comes to choosing the best treatment option and health care, it’s important to carefully consider the focus and benefits of each medical approach. From allopathic medicine to chiropractic, achieving personal health and wellness is what’s most important to the individual. The more involved you are in making medical decisions about your care, the more predictable your healing outcome will be.
