Adjustments, or manipulations, as they are often referred to, involve the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have shifted out of place for a number of reasons, ranging from normal daily activity to trauma, such as that from a car accident, for example.
When these vertebrae are out of place, the overall effect is systemic, ranging from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves & systems in the body from the brain, we cannot function at our peak levels.
Chiropractic Care Q & A
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on approach that uses gentle and precise spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and reduce nerve stress. The primary goal of this noninvasive form of manual therapy is to address problems in your nervous system which may be affecting the health and function of your body.
Because your nervous system is rooted in your spine, even the slightest spinal misalignment can cause you to feel pain or experience impaired function, either directly at the site or any place along the affected nerve path. An impinged nerve in your lower back, for example, may cause lower back pain or pain that radiates into your leg. Likewise, spinal misalignment in your upper back or neck may result in chronic migraines.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care?
Many people seek chiropractic care for the first time to resolve persistent back, neck, or headache pain. Chiropractic care is an ideal alternative to pain relief if you’d like to avoid prescription medication, surgery, or any other invasive medical treatments. Chiropractic care can help solve or relieve a wide range of problems, including:
• Back and neck pain
• Chronic headaches
• Bulging or herniated discs
• Sciatic nerve pain
• Degenerative arthritis
• Chronic pain disorders
• Sports-related injuries
• Repetitive stress injuries
Although chiropractors focus on performing spinal manipulation to make necessary structural adjustments, they also encourage their patients to play an active role in their own well-being. That’s because the chiropractor’s whole-person approach recognizes that a variety of factors affect your overall health as well as your ability to recover from an injury, including:
• Exercise and nutrition
• Sleep quality
• Environment and stress
• Family health history
Is chiropractic care safe?
It’s not unusual for patients to hesitate before seeking chiropractic care. In fact, many first-time chiropractic patients have already tried traditional medical treatment methods without success. Because chiropractic techniques are safer and more effective than ever, chiropractors can provide a higher level of expertise and help than they could in the past.
The chiropractors at TREND Healthcare have wide-ranging expertise and years of experience. They’re committed to ongoing education and strive to staying current with the most advanced chiropractic techniques, so they can safely and effectively relieve pain and promote long-term recovery for all patients.
