This may come to a surprise to many, but Chiropractic care is the second-largest profession in the primary health care field. Chiropractors are considered to be primary care providers, which means that they are able to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions within their scope of practice.
The main focus of chiropractic care is to ensure proper alignment of the spinal vertebrae and joints of the body. Misalignment or "subluxation" can result from trauma or from repetitive stresses on the joints. When misalignment occurs, range of motion in the affected area becomes diminished and spinal nerves that emerge from the spinal cord become pinched or irritated. This leads to an interruption of the nerve flow that often leads to pain, lack of function and a decrease in quality of life. By removing the nervous system interference, the brain is able to communicate more effectively to the rest of the body, restoring or improving function and overall health. Imagine trying to water your flowers with a garden hose that has a kink in it. Not much water is allowed to flow and the plants are not getting the hydration they need. Misalignment in your spine and joints creates a similar "kink" on your spinal nerves, affecting function and creating pain.
In most cases, patients seek relief from spinal pain, such as neck and back pain. However, Chiropractors can offer relief for a variety of other symptoms and conditions including safety in the workplace, stress management, prevention of injuries and proper posture. Other conditions that are commonly seen in office include, but are not limited to:
Pain related to pregnancy
Numbness/tingling in the arms and legs
Knowing how many conditions can be treated with regular chiropractic care, we begin to understand the importance of wellness care and prevention. Most people do not wait until their teeth fall out to see a dentist - so why should you wait until your joints begin to degenerate and you have pain before seeing a chiropractor? The process of spinal degeneration is a lengthy one and may go undetected for many years before pain appears or function becomes impaired. Why wait until your joints begin to fuse? Prevention is the key to allowing your body to function at 100%. Many studies have proven that children and adults that see their chiropractor regularly are less likely to become ill, have more energy, are able to fight off infections much easier and perform better during sports and in the classroom.
