Why do people go see a Chiropractor?
Many people seek Chiropractic for care of injuries and pain relief. Chiropractic care is extremely effective in reducing and eliminating symptoms, which is the goal; restoring normal function of the vertebral segments and reducing interference of the nerves.
Chiropractic has positioned itself as the most effective prevention and wellness profession. Pain, such as a migraine for example, is usually a late symptom that appears after a period of time following the misalignment of the spine. Having an adjustment before the symptoms appear can prevent the causes of the migraine or pain. A massage in conjunction with an adjustment can help promote the healing and reduce inflamation.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is based upon the fact that the nervous system is the master controller of the body, monitoring and coordinating all organs and systems of the body. Maintaining proper alignment of the vertebra ensures optimal function of the spinal nerves prevents interference of the function of those structures. Proper spinal alignment also prevents arthritic changes of the spine, degeneration of the intervertebral discs and improves spinal flexibility.
