How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic works because the human body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. The brain, which controls all of our bodies’ functions, sends millions of instructions down the spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue. Most of these impulses are relayed to the other body parts via the spinal cord. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called a “subluxation”, can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve these communications that take place between mind and body. These adjustments, along with other non-invasive procedures performed by your doctor, will aid in improved health.
Who can chiropractic help?
Improving the communication between your brain and body is a benefit to everyone. By obtaining a consultation from your chiropractor, you can receive a step-by-step analysis of what chiropractic can do to benefit your lifestyle. Chiropractors can also help children, the elderly, and those with special needs.
Do chiropractors treat other problems in addition to problems of the spine?
Chiropractors spend years of highly-specialized college training to effectively understand the interrelationship of structure and body functions. Your nervous system controls every part and function of your body. Subluxations of your spine can press or pinch nerves that control almost any part of your body. By adjusting the spine, a chiropractor can help many problems that may not seem to be related to the spine.
How long will it take?
Chiropractic care depends on the healing abilities of each patient, and results can often be hard to predict. Maintaining scheduled visits, practicing suggested strengthening techniques, and following a well balanced diet are all factors that speed up an individual’s recovery time. Some individuals may detect immediate changes in the way they feel, act, and look, whereas other individuals may take much longer to reap the full benefits of introducing chiropractic care into their life. In order to better understand the impact that chiropractic care can have on your life, schedule a consultation to take steps towards a healthier, happier lifestyle.
