As Halloween quickly approaches, we see plenty of scary things such as zombies, witches and skeletons. The decorations don’t necessarily scare us but some things that might are musculoskeletal issues such as neck pain, headaches, low back pain, or sciatica. Through chiropractic care, the doctors at Apex Chiropractic are equipped to provide the highest quality of care to keep your mind at ease. Here are some frequent yet important questions you need to know!
What is Chiropractic Care?
The American Chiropractic Association states that “chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.” Chiropractors focus on the spine and make sure the bones within the spine are not putting pressure on the nervous system. Pressure on the nerves can affect and alter cells, organs, muscles, and tissues that it may go to. Spinal adjustments are then used to align the bones that allows the body to heal from within.
Say That Again?
All of that sounds great but what does it actually mean for you? Basically as chiropractors, we look to the spine for misalignments that could be putting pressure on these nerves. We are able to determine these misalignments by multiple things. We can feel these bones out of alignment which will cause the muscles to become tight and stiff. We also can feel and see the inflammation and edema around the misaligned joint. These problem areas can lead to numerous issues including headaches, pain, muscle spasms, decreased range of motion, or even a weakened immune system. Once we find these problem areas, we use our hands to correct the problem with chiropractic adjustments. Each patient has their own unique issues and therefore each treatment plan will be different as well. We are focused on how we can help improve their health naturally.
Chiropractic Treatment and Benefit
So what does a chiropractic treatment look like? We typically use our hands to gently and effectively adjust the vertebra of the spine. These adjustments will remove the interference that the vertebra is causing on the nerves which can lead to a wealth of benefits. Some of these benefits can include improved mobility, greater flexibility, fewer headaches, better focus, pain relief, and boosted immune system among many others. Chiropractic can improve all aspects of your health!
