Chiropractic Care Q & A
Why choose chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care focuses on the treatment of conditions relating to the entire musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. These treatments vary from practice to practice but they are mostly introduced with a natural, and non-invasive approach to healing. When the spine shifts out of its proper alignment the body can be thrown out of balance causing pain not just in the moved vertebrae, but throughout other extremities as well. Even the smallest injury to the spine can throw the body off kilter due to the strain placed on the nervous system. Misalignments called subluxations can interrupt the natural transmission of nerve impulses throughout the body which results in the body being prevented from working at its best.
What is spinal manipulation?
One of the most common areas of treatment for chiropractors is spinal manipulation. These are gentle movements of the spine where pressure is placed on specific areas to move misalignments in the spine back into their natural position and promote healing. This also restores proper function to the nervous system and helps your body to tap into its natural healing process without the use of drugs or invasive surgery. Spinal manipulation also works to repair joint mobility through the manual application of a controlled force. When this is done, the joints that have become restricted are returned to their normal mobility.
Who can benefit from chiropractic care?
Because injury and accidents usually register in the back or neck, patients who have suffered from injury or accident usually find immediate relief through chiropractic care where they couldn’t through medications alone. The techniques chiropractors use can not only treat these issues in the back and neck but also general health issues as well. Most often, therapies are combined with other natural, total-body treatments such as spinal decompression, acupuncture, nutritional guidance, and more to aid recovery with a variety of conditions in a non-invasive way.
