Discover this proven alternative therapy for musculoskeletal pain
Chiropractic emphasizes the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the spine. The restoration of proper body alignment through spinal adjustments and other treatments has positive effects on virtually all aspects of health.
Chiropractic care involves manipulating the spine to restore proper body alignment and relieve back and neck pain, as well as pain from arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, frozen shoulder, and musculoskeletal injuries.
How Does Chiropractic Therapy Work?
Misalignment of your spinal column can have pervasive adverse effects on tissues and organs throughout your body. When your spine is even slightly out of alignment, it may impinge on the spinal nerves that branch out to your muscles and various organs.
Using gentle manipulative techniques to bring your spine back into its proper alignment results in sometimes-miraculous outcomes. In addition, research suggests that by relieving nerve impingement, specific chiropractic maneuvers can improve health in organs throughout the body.
What Is a Typical Treatment Session Like?
A typical chiropractic treatment might include heat and/or cold applied to the affected area and massage to relax the muscles. However, the centerpiece of chiropractic is the adjustment and manipulation, in which the chiropractor restores vertebral alignment, taking the stress off impinged nerves and overworked muscles.
