Chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on approach that uses gentle and precise spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and reduce nerve stress. The primary goal of this noninvasive form of manual therapy is to address problems in your nervous system which may be affecting the health and function of your body.
Because your nervous system is rooted in your spine, even the slightest spinal misalignment can cause you to feel pain or experience impaired function, either directly at the site or any place along the affected nerve path. An impinged nerve in your lower back, for example, may cause lower back pain or pain that radiates into your leg. Likewise, spinal misalignment in your upper back or neck may result in chronic migraines.
Many people seek chiropractic care for the first time to resolve persistent back, neck, or headache pain. As a natural, holistic healing method, chiropractic care is an ideal alternative to pain relief if you’d like to avoid prescription medication, surgery, or any other invasive medical treatments. Chiropractic care can help solve or relieve a wide range of problems, including:
Although chiropractors focus on performing spinal manipulation to make necessary structural adjustments, they also encourage their patients to play an active role in their own well-being. That’s because the chiropractor’s whole-person approach recognizes that a variety of factors affect your overall health as well as your ability to recover from an injury, including:
It’s not unusual for patients to hesitate before seeking chiropractic care. In fact, many first-time chiropractic patients have already tried traditional medical treatment methods without success. Because chiropractic techniques are safer and more effective than ever, chiropractors can provide a higher level of expertise and help than they could in the past.
