What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care addresses health through the joints, particularly in the spine. If the joints are not moving properly, dysfunction results with inflammation on the nerve roots then pain and tension in the muscles surrounding the spine. Much like a building, the human body cannot function properly without good structure. Chiropractic adjusts the spine to correct the joints in order to decrease inflammation and relieve pain. In doing so, the body’s structure returns to balance, helping all of its functions, both movement and that of the internal organs, to work properly and in harmony.
Is it safe?
Chiropractic care is safe. The greatest risk is soreness following the first adjustments because the joints have not been corrected this way before. It does take time to get the full benefits from chiropractic care as the muscles have been holding the joints in these positions for some time. We start by retraining the muscles to hold the adjustments and then retraining the tendons to do the same. Care generally starts with multiple visits a week to get this training started and then visits spread out to maintenance care as the structure improves.
What chiropractic can help with?
Chiropractic care can treat many things… neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, leg pain. Sometimes allergy symptoms can resolve with consistent chiropractic care. Because nerves come off your spine to the various organs of your body, even such complaints as gastrointestinal issues can be helped with this modality. Respiratory function can also improve as adjustments result in less restricted movement in the upper body. Even poor sleep can be assisted.
