Why Chiropractic Works

Here's a quick discussion on why chiropractic care may be a great choice for you. Chiropractic can help a lot of people, but there are also many problems that it cannot help. Read on to discover when chiropractic is the right choice.

  • Mechanics

    Many chiropractors, including myself, do not consider ourselves to be bone doctors. We are most interested in the proper functioning of the nerve system that happens to be encased by the bones of your spine. The spine is made of many bone segments which house and protect the spinal cord. Smaller spinal nerve branches come off the spinal cord and exit between the bones.

    These nerve pathways carry information or messages between the brain and the cells of the body. These messages are essential for the life of the cells. We call this innate intelligence. Without brain messages, the cells immediately begin the process of dying; ie. they can no longer function the way they should to maintain life. Because the bones are movable, they can misalign in such away as to interfere with the message and, ultimately, the ability of the person to function at their best or express their optimum potential.

    Frequently Asked Questions

  • What It Treats

    Among people seeking back pain relief alternatives, most choose chiropractic treatment. About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually. Of these, 7.7 million, or 35%, are seeking relief from back pain from various causes, including accidents, sports injuries, and muscle strains. Other complaints include pain in the neck, arms, and legs, and headaches.

    Research has also shown chiropractic to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. In addition, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.

    Frequently Asked Questions

  • What It DOESN'T Treat

    Chiropractic care can be very effective at treating issues that are caused by these nerve signal problems, but many, MANY health problems are NOT a result of poor nerve communication. Be very wary of any so-called doctor that claims otherwise. In fact, run!

    Chiropractic is not going to help with ailments caused by an underlying disease. Irritable bowel syndome? Nope. Cancer? Not a chance. These medical conditions are caused by factors well outside of spinal alignment and should be treated with the appropriate type of medicine.

    So why do so many people swear by chiropractic? Because a lot of people DO have problems that are the result of poor spinal alignment! Life is phsically demanding, and your neck and spine take a lot of abuse. Chiropractic can help a lot of people, but it can't help with everything.

    Frequently Asked Questions

  • Cost Effective Healthcare

    The benefits of an overall wellness program and preventative care are staggering, expecially when it comes to your wallet. It costs very little to stay healthy compared to seeking medical help once there is a problem.

    It also costs much less to treat a problem early on compared to seeking treatment when it is advanced. A good chiropractic program, aside from helping your body function at its highest potential is also a great way to have someone monitoring your overall health who can help you spot problems early.
