Chiropractic care helps to correct misalignments in the spine and other structures of the body that build up over time. Chiropractic care works by allowing the natural instinct of the body to be healthy and by improving nervous system function. To remain healthy, your body’s nervous system must function optimally and to be free spinal misalignments and pressure on nerves.
Chiropractic care is not only for back and neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to keep your body in perfect operating condition through nutrition and improved nervous system function. Chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to fatigue to diabetes to anxiety.
Vertebrae moving out of its normal position and become misaligned is referred to as subluxation. Subluxation is caused by anything from a minor slip to a major trauma like a car accident. Subluxation puts pressure on nerves and blood vessels and affects tissues around it. Subluxation complicates the two-way messaging from the brain to the nervous system and must be restored for the body to function optimally.
Chiropractic Care is another way of looking at and treating the human body as a complete system. The body is naturally self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is completely controlled by the brain via the spinal cord and the vast complex of nerves. When this system is not functioning in perfect harmony, the overall performance of the human body suffers.
Chiropractic care does not use drugs and medicine as a form of treating a patient. With supplementation and nutrition being a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions are band-aids to treat symptoms rather than treating the real problem.
Treating back and neck pain is only a smart part of what chiropractors are really capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but also deal with more significant issues like fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
Chiropractic care is safe. When the vertebrae are out of place or misaligned, the result is that overall body function from muscle activity to correct nervous system function to correct communication from the brain to all body parts causes unhealthy and unhappy consequences.
The objection of a spinal adjustment is to simply realign vertebrae that have moved out-of-place to allow the body to operate at peak performance. The adjustment is pressure from the chiropractor’s hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into their natural position, happening with a quick movement and without causing discomfort. Any sounds from the adjustment come from the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Most patients learn about chiropractic cre through friends recommendation or the internet. Maybe you’re just tired or living with pain and chiropractic sounds like a great option especially when the alternatives could be risky surgery with questionable results. Either way, your first visit to the chiropractor will include a conversation and paperwork discussing your health history, the nature of your current health condition, and what you hope to gain through your visit. More often than not, your first visit will provide immediate relief from some symptoms.
Chiropractor care can correct the spinal misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.
