Understanding Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are one of the most misunderstood health care professionals. While most people have a basic understanding of what they do, it’s often oversimplified and misses the true healing nature of chiropractic care. Since chiropractors do so much to eliminate pain and restore health, we thought we’d go over this important subject.

What is chiropractic care?

The body is a complex system of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Together, these elements make up the musculoskeletal system. This system plays an important role in everything from mobility to impacting our basic health. And when something is off within this system, chronic pain and non-optimal health are sure to follow.

One of the largest and most central aspects of this system is the spine. Not only does the spine keep us upright and allow mobility, it acts as a protective structure for our body’s central nervous system. Unfortunately, many people have problems with their spine that come from injuries, degenerative issues, or just as a byproduct of everyday living.

How does chiropractic care help?

Chiropractors help to bring your body’s musculoskeletal system back into proper alignment, especially the spine. This can have a large range of positive effects, including reducing pain and restoring mobility. This is especially helpful for those with chronic pain issues surrounding the neck and back.

One of the more common problems people come to us with are spinal subluxations. Essentially this is a misalignment of the spine that creates long-lasting pain. Through chiropractic care, these problems can be treated in a natural and non-invasive way.

What can a chiropractor do to help me with my pain?

If you’re dealing with neck and back pain, a chiropractor is your best bet for both immediate relief and long-term healing. If you’ve had a car accident, fallen, or been hurt on the job, chiropractors can help identify the issue, evaluate the extent of the problem, and create a treatment plan to get you back to health.

If you’re curious about if chiropractic care can help you, please feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to listen to your issue and answer your questions regarding this and other treatment options.
