What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of back pain, neck pain, joint pain of the arms or legs, headaches, and other neuromusculoskeletal complaints.
Conditions That Can Be Helped With Chiropractic Care
When a chiropractor frees the nervous system from spinal stress, the immune system works as it was designed, resistance to disease increases, and overall better health is the result.
It’s very important to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment for any disease. Allopathic medicine names and treats diseases, while chiropractic holistically evaluates and treats the person with the disease.
Although children and adults with diseases are brought to the chiropractor, the chiropractor is not treating their diseases, but instead is reducing nervous system stresses, thus permitting their body’s natural healing potential to function at its best. These are some of the conditions that can be helped with chiropractic care:
Chiropractic Is All About Function
Historically, chiropractic care has been sought most often to treat causes of neuro-skeletal complaints, including, but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
After examination and subsequent treatment of their specific condition, it becomes obvious to most that chiropractic’s greatest gift to humanity is in its potential to restore and maintain communications between the brain and every cell in the body.
Today, we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for common health concerns with which we’re all familiar: colds, ear infections, fevers, colic, sore throats, asthma, allergies, bed wetting, stomach aches, and the hundred and one little, and big things, children experience as they grow to adulthood.
Unrestricted channels of communication between the brain and body lead to optimal health. Restricted pathways to the muscularskeletal system prevent proper function, leading to pain, weakness, numbness, muscle spasms, and overall poor health. Restricted pathways to organs and glands prevent optimal function, which results in dis-ease and potential failure.
Although interference in the spinal nerve transmissions are certainly not the only cause of dis-ease in an organ or gland, these tissues can’t possibly function at full potential unless their communication to the brain is restored.
Women’s Wellness Care & Chiropractic Adjustments
Women’s bodies go through many changes from adolescence to adulthood, and chiropractic care can help improve overall wellness in each stage of growth and transition. Spinal adjustments to correct lower back and hip misalignments can have a positive effect and improve many problems with menstrual cycles, pregnancy, childbirth, and joint and neuromuscular pai ns that occur in any stage of woman’s life.
Chiropractics for Senior Citizens
As your body ages, pain can often leave you unable or unwilling to live an active life. Regular chiropractic care can reduce pain, improve flexibility and strength, and even prevent further loss of muscle and bone caused by reduction in activity levels. You don’t have to live with pain just because your body is aging. If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, your doctor of chiropractic can help you plan an individualized exercise program that will help you restore the lost range of motion to your joints, improve your flexibility and endurance, increase your muscle tone and strength. Doctors of chiropractic can also give you nutrition and supplementation advice that can be helpful in controlling and reducing joint inflammation.
