Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a holistic therapy focused on maintaining healthy musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The primary reasons that most patients seek the help of our chiropractors are for relief from back and neck pain, but there are plenty of other reasons to visit a chiropractor.
Spinal Manipulation Therapy
Recent studies have shown that spinal manipulation therapy, when performed by a qualified and experienced chiropractor, can be more effective at relieving neck pain than medications. Of course, this form of therapy must be combined with appropriate exercises and stretches to achieve maximum effect. Our chiropractors also help our patients ensure that any exercise routines they adopt will not wind up causing more damage.
When two or more vertebrae aren’t fitting together correctly it can lead to pain, discomfort, decreased mobility, and an entire host of other problems. This condition, known medically as subluxation or spinal misalignment, often goes unnoticed by those who suffer from it. If left untreated, it can lead to issues with other parts of the body as well.
A surprising number of acute injuries and chronic conditions are the direct results of poor posture. Simply put, our bodies were not designed to be sitting hunched over a computer screen or standing still all day long, yet that’s what many of us are expected to do at our jobs. Our chiropractors can help improve your posture and address any muscle or joint problems that have come up as a result of poor posture and inactivity.
Relief from Chronic Pain
Conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, stress and tension disorders, and certain mobility issues often cause our patients a substantial amount of pain. Because these are chronic conditions, they cannot always be treated safely using pharmaceutical medications. Scheduling routine visits with our chiropractors allows patients to manage their chronic pain in ways that do not jeopardize their overall health and well-being.
Improve Range of Motion
Whether a patient has suffered an acute injury or has a chronic condition that limits their range of motion, chances are it is already negatively impacting their ability to perform essential tasks. Our chiropractors can help improve your range of motion, allowing you to increase your level of comfort and ability to perform daily activities.
Relief from Stress
Stress and tension disorders can cause a substantial amount of physical pain, including muscle soreness, headaches, and joint issues. These issues can be difficult to diagnose, but our chiropractors can help identify stress disorders and come up with an appropriate treatment plan.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics has reported that holistic approaches to care can reduce pharmaceutical costs by as much as 51.8 percent. It also leads to 43 percent fewer admissions to hospitals and other advanced care facilities. Our chiropractors can work in conjunction with your primary care doctor and specializing physicians to come up with an integrated treatment plan that helps you live well for life.
