Chiropractic care is a highly effective, all-natural form of pain relief, but not everyone is aware of how beneficial chiropractic adjustments are, even for people who aren’t in pain. Chiropractic care can be an important part of an overall health and wellness plan.
Whether you’re looking for pain relief from an acute or chronic condition, or you’re just looking for a boost to your general well-being, our doctors can help.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
A chiropractor is a licensed doctor who has earned a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree after years of specialized study and training. A chiropractor is highly skilled at providing musculoskeletal adjustments, most commonly to the spine and neck.
The spine’s vertebrae lose alignment for a variety of reasons, including strain, injury, and typical aging. When vertebrae become misaligned, your normal range of function can be impaired. Whether or not there is pain involved—and often there is—spinal misalignment can diminish your body’s natural ability to heal itself or maintain general good health.
A chiropractor will detect and correct any misalignments, bringing the whole body back into a natural state of balance.
Chiropractic treatment is very safe, especially when compared to conventional healthcare treatments that involve pharmaceutical drugs or surgery. Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive form of treatment.
The importance of a healthy, properly aligned spine cannot be understated. The spine provides a support system to the body as a whole, and its condition affects all aspects of the body. Because of this, chiropractic treatment can be an effective treatment for pain throughout the body.
Our chiropractic adjustments can provide immediate pain relief. Patients rarely experience any discomfort. Our doctor will gently apply pressure to the area in need of correction, using only minimal force. Many patients find the adjustment quite pleasant, and report an immediate feeling of relief.
Chiropractic care is highly effective for a variety of conditions including:
- Back pain caused by sciatica and other issues
- Neck pain and whiplash
- Knee pain
- Pain caused by poor posture or fitness
- Pain from extended periods of sitting or standing
- Pain or numbness related to pressure on a nerve
- Joint pain in the hips, elbows, or shoulders
- Other joint pain caused by repetitive stress
- Migraines and different types of headaches
By bringing your spine back into alignment, the body’s interrelated systems are once again harmonized. Patients who include regular chiropractic adjustments as a part of their health and wellness routine often claim that it benefits their mood and energy levels and that they feel an overall sense of well-being.
