Chiropractic care is a conservative approach to treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Chiropractic aims to treat the source of the pain or problem, not just the resulting symptoms. Our care is primarily used to treat the muscles and joints of the body, which can have effects on other areas of your health. The most common sign that there is a problem is pain–low back pain, neck pain, headaches, and so on.
The most common procedure performed by a chiropractor is a chiropractic adjustment, also known as a spinal manipulation. The intention of this is to restore joint motion to an area which has restricted motion, known as hypomobility. The correction for this is by applying a controlled force in a specific direction. Chiropractors spend all 3 years of their graduate education learning how to locate areas of hypomobility and how to correct them.
Areas of hypomobility may appear as a result of any kind of physical, emotional or chemical stress on the body. These include, but are not limited to, poor posture, being in the same position for an extended amount of time, repetitive motion, muscular tension, improper lifting, emotional stress, lack of sleep, medications, poor diet and chemicals in the environment. The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to restore motion to the area, which alleviates inflammation, nerve irritation, pain and muscular tension.
Chiropractic can help with much more than just neck and low back pain. It is also effective for headaches/migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, hands that fall asleep, tight muscles, disc herniations, menstrual cramps, digestive troubles and many other problems. Remember, The nervous system controls all aspects of the body. If your nervous system is not functioning properly, you can never attain optimal health.
