A chiropractor focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the alignment of the spine. It is believed, when in correct alignment, the body can function properly. This can result in reduced pain. When the spine is aligned, one may experience the relief of pain from a variety of conditions. Physical adjustments are a chiropractor's main tool to align the joints and spine. The doctor will use their hands and body weight to perform these. Many find alignments to be relaxing and enjoyable.
Common conditions that chiropractic care can help alleviate:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Joint Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- and more.
Whether it is back pain or neck pain relief you are seeking, or release from other joint aches like shoulder pain or knee pain, you know how debilitating and excruciating it can be. You may even be unable to stand or move without jots of pain up your spine, or be incapacitated by other pain. With the help of a skilled chiropractor, your body has the ability to get back to your active life style with a significant reduction of your pain.
The kind of joint pain or headache that sends you to a chiropractic center for relief may not be handled with medication, which is only masking the problem, anyway. Or, perhaps, you do not want to be dependent on medication for pain relief. Beyond joint pain, you might be suffering from migraines or nerve pain like sciatica.
You may have explored physical therapy or massage, or other forms of more traditional manipulation for relief for your joint pain. To have an actual solution, you need an expert in natural and functional medicine, who can assess your situation and use chiropractic services to bring you back to your old self through adjustments or other all-natural pain relief.
In the capable hands of a trained chiropractor lies a lifetime of learning about the body and how to manipulate it to relieve pain. When you come to the office, an extensive examination of your particular situation and needs will prescribe what adjustment is necessary to bring you relief. The doctor will examine the pained areas for a subluxation, or abnormality that is causing the pain. Using carefully researched manipulative techniques, our doctor will position you and apply force to literally realign the joints and areas that have become out of line. Once the body is positioned correctly and the right amount of force applied to correct the subjuxation, the patient often experiences some immediate relief.
Chiropractic care is for individuals who want to be free from the restrictions that pain has placed on their lives, and those who are seeking another option from the bandaids of medication or heating pads. Our chiropractor may have the key to living your life with reduced pain. Our doctor's use their expertise to put your body back into a healthy position.
