What does a chiropractor do?
The word chiropractor derives from greek words cheir (meaning hand) and praxis (meaning action) and means “done by hand”. A chiropractor assesses the body for alignment and free movement of your joints by hand. X-rays are an effective tool used to establish what is going on in the spine and determining the root causes for your pain symptoms.
People of all ages can greatly benefit from chiropractic care. Athletes, dancers, and even new born babies who suffer trauma during birth can be helped by a chiropractor by easing the vertebrae of the spine back into a comfortable position. Patients who are experiencing pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility due to age degeneration can find relief through chiropractic therapies and procedures. A chiropractor uses manual manipulation of the spine and joints and in conjunction with lifestyle changes allows the body to heal to its natural state holistically.
The body has an incredible ability to renew and rebuild itself, however, it needs correct balance and alignment to do so. When joints are unbalanced or misaligned due to injury or inflammation chiropractic care is needed to get it back to proper position. Poor fitness or posture, sitting or standing for excessive amounts of time can also throw off the body’s balance impairing the ability to stay healthy or heal itself.
By relieving the stress on the joints, the alignment of the spinal column improves allowing for easier transmission of vital messages from the nerves and unrestricted flow of fluids to the organs begins. This is a crucial process for ensuring the organs receive the support they need to remain healthy.
Often chiropractic is associated with only helping for neck and back pain, contrary to this chiropractic aides in restoring overall health due to the fact that every organ and function of the body relies on the nerves traveling up and down the spine. Chiropractic care has virtually no side effects and when coupled with nutritional advice and exercise, most patients are able to avoid prescription drugs, painkillers or even invasive surgical procedures. Chiropractic care allows for the body to return to a more balanced and healthier state which in most cases helps our patients avoid future injuries or pain.
