What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the study of how the nervous system and spine control all other body functions. Releasing the tension that builds up in the areas of the spine allows full expression of the body’s healing. The philosophy of chiropractic is that realignment of the musculoskeletal structure allows the body to heal itself without medicine or surgery. It is typically an alternative pain-relief source. However it also stimulates the spinal cord to facilitate proper function of the nervous system.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic exams and services are very safe practices. They involve specific, controlled force applied to a joint that is in pain and not functioning as it should. Their purpose is to reduce pain, stimulate movement and range of motion, and improve performance. Realignment of the spine targets pain throughout the body and promotes healing and health throughout the whole body.
Not only do chiropractors use alignments, or the targeted force applied to specific areas, but they also use other therapeutic treatments such as: alternating between heat and cold applied to the affected area, exercise, massage therapy, and dietary management.
When Do You Typically Need Chiropractic Services?
There are many different health conditions that indicate the need for a chiropractic alignment. Some common conditions that are indicative of a need for chiropractic services are:
- Joint or muscle pain
- A job that requires sitting for long periods of time
- Chronic back pain
- Limited range of motion
- Sharp pain in your legs
Chiropractic is needed for not only back pain. Because it is tied to your central nervous system, it’s crucial to make sure that your spine is properly aligned, and your body is functioning properly.
