Chiropractic care is used for more than just releasing tension and relieving back pain. There are various benefits to seeking out chiropractic care, and and just as many reasons to do so. Here are some benefits of seeking regular, ongoing chiropractic care for yourself and your family.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
How does Chiropractic Care Help?
The manipulation applied in chiropractic care is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event such as falling or repetitive stress such as sitting without proper back support. Chiropractic care is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Why do People Seek Chiropractic Care?
Chronic (ongoing) and acute (sudden) low back pain can be draining and lead to other symptoms such as an inability to focus at work, difficulty with normal activities, or depression. Seeking chiropractic care can help relieve chronic and acute back pain, and help patients to gain better function overall.
When sports injuries occur, chiropractors can help with injuries like strains and sprains, tendinitis, and stress fractures. When a motor vehicle accident, fall, or other incident causes whiplash, a chiropractor can get you back on the road to recovery more quickly.
Patients also visit chiropractors for spinal exams and for regular chiropractic adjustments to maintain skeletal and muscular health. Seeking chiropractic care for preventative health helps to detect and correct small problems before they become big ones.
Chiropractic care even benefits pregnant women and children. For expecting mothers, chiropractic care relieves low back pain/sciatica, pelvic pain (including pubic symphysis dysfunction), hip pain, hand and wrist discomfort, carpal tunnel syndrome, foot and ankle discomfort, round ligament pain, posture related discomforts, headaches, and nausea. Chiropractic care can help children achieve 100% nerve function to allow them to perform at their best.
