The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure (spine and pelvis) and its function (nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Hence, the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body. Chiropractic treatment is focused around the root of the nervous system – the channels through which impulses travel between the body and the brain. If these impulses are impeded by cramped and seized muscles, their functions begin to suffer. It’s an effective and natural treatment option.
Chiropractors will first of all focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned. They perform adjustments to the spine or other parts of the body. Their goal is to correct spinal and joint problems and help improve function, alleviate pain and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself without surgery or medication. They use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments.
“Spinal manipulation” is a generic term used for any kind of therapeutic movement of the spine. Generally it involves the application of a quick but strong pressure on a joint between two vertebrates of the spine. Even though this might be the primary treatment, chiropractors do use other alternatives. Treatments such as: exercises, heat therapy, acupuncture, and/or a TENS machine (transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation).
One of the best things about chiropractic care is that it’s a drug-free and surgery-free path to healing naturally. Chiropractic adjustments can free your immune system up so it can focus on keeping you healthy. Above all it enhances your ability to think, move and perform.
