Over 30 years ago, I was a co-founder and a major author of IMT (Integrative Manual Therapy) with my dear wife, Sharon W. Giammatteo, IMT (1948-2015). Integrative Manual Therapy is a unique set of techniques, approaches, and methodologies that address pain, dysfunction, disease and disability. IMT is best described as a health care process. IMT encompasses a wide range of health care practices. It achieves health and healing by taking into account the diverse systems of the human body and addressing dysfunction at the cellular level.

Chiropractic in Rhode Island - is it right for me?
Rhode Island Chiropractors specialize in the interactions between our nerves, muscles and skeleton and their effects on our general health. They diagnose problems and use manual therapy, including joint adjustment and manipulation, to prevent and treat them.

Many people who seek Rhode Island chiropractic care do so for help with back pain, especially lower back pain, neck pain and headache. Spinal adjustment in Rhode Island or chiropractic adjustment is the most common method of treatment--it refers to the manual adjustment by the chiropractor of the three-joint complex at the base of your spine with sufficient force to create a sensation of 'release', increasing the joint's range and reducing pain.

A treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments. Many chiropractors in Rhode Island also incorporate nutritional counseling, exercise or rehabilitation into the treatment plan.

How is a Chiropractor licensed?
The Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) in Rhode Island must complete four academic years at a school accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education, as well as a one-year internship at an outpatient clinic owned and run by a chiropractic college. They are tested and certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and licensed by the state in which they practice. To maintain licensure in most states, practitioners must complete a certain number of continuing education hours annually.

There are several schools of chiropractic adjustment techniques, although most chiropractors mix techniques from several schools. Some Applied Kinesiologists in Rhode Island are qualified as Chiropractors.
