What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body heal naturally. Several styles of this treatment look to correct subluxations. The goal of chiropractic is simple, to help people naturally without the use of surgery or prescription drugs. We love helping patients life pain free lives.
What is Subluxation?
This is a state of nerve interference due to pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that exit the spine. The spine has a natural curvature with several nerve endings exiting from it and connecting to body tissues, organs, blood vessels, and muscles. Any misalignment either due to injury, poor body posture, genetics, or other factors cause severe tension and in some cases injury on these nerve endings. This tension and injury may impair, restrict or limit movement, and may cause chronic pain in various parts and organs of the body and in extreme cases cause great dysfunction in body processes.
What is the Nervous System?
The spinal cord is essentially a bundle of nerves. Each of these nerves exits the spinal cord through the intervertebral foramen. These nerves are crucial in transmitting and interpreting sensory and motor signals to the rest of the body parts. Any interference to these nerves will adversely affect the functioning or movement of body organs and parts leading to extreme pain, impairment, and discomfort.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Chiropractic care has proven to be the solution to what appears to be ‘isolated issues’ that have no relationship to the spine. This treatment thoroughly analyzes the functioning and response of the body to unearth the real underlying issue of the pain. According to WebMD, About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually.
Here are some of the reasons chiropractic works:
· Initial relief to consistent and recurring pain, discomfort or irritation
· Permanent corrections to misalignment
· Healthier, happier, and radiant life
· Full range of movement of limbs, joints, and muscles
