How a Chiropractor can help
If you come across someone who’s suffering from any sort of back pain, the first words out of your mouth will probably be – “Go, see a Chiropractor!” Most people visit Chiropractors for relief from back pain, but few people are aware Chiropractors can help with other things. Chiropractors also help people with neck pain, headaches, arthritis, migraines, dizziness, disc injuries and much more. Chiropractors also help people from all age groups, be they infants or elderly.
What does Chiropractic care involve?
Chiropractors are qualified to use a wide range of modalities, but there main treatment technique is spinal and extremity adjustments. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. Chiropractic care can be used as a form of pain relief and can also be used as a maintenance or preventative modality to help look after spinal health over a longer term.
What are the advantages offered by Chiropractic?
There are a number of benefits Chiropractic care offers to patients, some of them are:
Improved spinal health – Restoring joint mobility within the spine not only helps alleviate symptoms like pain but also help prevent premature wearing (arthritis) of the spine plus it allows your nervous system to function unimpeded.
Low or no side effects – Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. Chiropractic care is also drug free and non invasive.
