A chiropractic treatment is an effective and safe treatment to relieve pain in the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Using hands-on spinal manipulation along with other alternative treatments, chiropractors align the body’s musculoskeletal structure to assist the body in healing itself. Chiropractic treatments are effective for people who have a spinal injury due to a vehicular accident, sports activity or just poor ergonomic habits. It is also used for spinal conditions like bone spurs, herniated discs, sciatica and pinched nerves. Most people seek the services of a chiropractor due to back pain. Along with manual adjustments, many chiropractors incorporate an exercise and nutritional plan to increase strength to the bones, muscles, joints and connective tissues. Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and a safe alternative to laser spine surgery or open back surgery.
Research has also shown that chiropractic is helpful in treating headaches and cervical pain. In addition, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis typically respond well to the moderate pressure used by chiropractors. There are many reasons why chiropractic treatments work. Manipulations improve nutrient supply to cartilage and other structures inside the joints. With a manipulation, the blood supply moves to the exterior of the joint, and nutrients flow into the fluid of the joint. Manipulations also help reduce neural pressure. Our nervous system is comprised of nerve bundles and nerves that do not function well under pressure. Inflammation from a bulging disc or bone fragment can press on a nerve and cause chronic pain. Chiropractic adjustments can move the bones into the correct position to relieve the pain caused by the impingement on the nerve.
