Chiropractic care is a non-invasive manual approach that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic Doctors aim to restore normal ranges of motion and function to the supporting joints, muscles, and ligaments. Not only does chiropractic care treat the symptoms, it also targets the underlying cause of the problem – so you can return to enjoying everyday activities as soon as possible.
After completing a history and physical examination, your chiropractor will recommend a course of treatment tailored to you. They utilize various techniques to help you achieve your personal goals. The technique most commonly used is the adjustment, also known as joint manipulation. This involves a quick, specific thrust to a joint to restore motion and proper biomechanics. As well, your chiropractor will prescribe exercise and provide nutritional, dietary and injury prevention strategies.
It is important to understand that back health is imperative. Your nervous system acts as the body’s information highway. The nerves are protected by the spine and travel out between the vertebrae to the rest of your body. Everyday stress and strain on the vertebrae can create pressure on these nerves and affected areas. You should consider chiropractic care if aching joints or muscle pain are preventing you from doing your favourite activities.
These are some benefits of chiropractic care and how it can help you:
