Chiropractic treatment has long been the leading natural and non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions. The field of chiropractic medicine continues to progress and our clinic specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic care with spinal rehabilitative exercises for pain management and pain relief.
Our chiropractic services work by relieving the tension or inflammation to the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain.
Common conditions that can be helped with chiropractic include:
- Neck and Back Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pinched Nerves
Chiropractic adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion. Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and the surround muscle tissues. By having proper mobility in the joints, the pressure to a spinal nerve causing pain will diminish and resolve.
Health benefits of Chiropractic Care
When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. With Chiropractic care, patients not only respond to spine pain conditions, but also to conditions affecting the entire body as well.
This combination of traditional and natural therapies allows our patients to truly receive the best of both worlds when it comes to healthcare today. By first focusing on relieving the inflamed and injured tissues of the spine and body, and combine it with functional rehabilitation for strengthening of the muscles around it, it gives our patients a much faster recovery time and much longer results.
