Q. What will Chiropractic do for you?A. The nervous system controls all functions of the body. The human spine provides flexibility for the body while protecting the delicate spine, where a vast network of nerves originates.
Subtle spinal misalignments, causing pain, often create pressure on the nerves that radiate from the spinal column. This interruption of nerve flow can lead to symptoms of pain or imbalance in parts of the body away from the spine. In addition, fatigue or muscle spasms can cause postural changes. Leading to further misalignment.
Chiropractic has developed various techniques for correcting these misalignments, or subluxatons. Treatment can include carefully controlled spinal adjustments and strength-building exercises.
Spinal misalignments can be caused by accidents or by postural habits. Patients with injuries or poor posture can benefit from rehabilitative chiropractic care.
Patients who are under the care of a chiropractor tend to have healthier immune systems and are less prone to repetitive injuries.
Correction of subluxations also relieves interference from nerves, allowing the body to function efficiently.
Chiropractic Adjustment goes far beyond pain relief!
Positive changes found after the adjustment included improved range-of-motion, better muscle strength, improved muscular contraction, improved immune system response, increased endorphin levels, lowered blood pressure and increased lung capacity. Improvements were also found in studies on agility, balance, and kinesthetic perception.
The results of lack of motion in the body cause degenerative changes of the spine. The formation of soft tissue adhesions around the joints of the spine restricts proper motion. Chiropractic adjustments can break up Adhesions causing the lack of motion to parts of the body.
