Chiropractic Care Q & A

What should I know about chiropractic care?

Chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating health conditions affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractic care focuses on your spine and how its health affects your body.

Your spine surrounds and protects the spinal cord, which encompasses all the nerves traveling between your brain and the rest of your body. When your spine is out of alignment or subluxated, it presses against nerves.

Compressed nerves become inflamed and painful, limiting spinal movement. However, you can also develop pain, and other symptoms in the areas of your body served by the damaged nerves.

Chiropractic care includes many different techniques to correct spinal subluxations. When your vertebrae are properly aligned, blood flow increases and inflammation and pain go away. As your spine is restored, your body returns to a balanced state, and it can use its natural healing ability to improve your overall health.

Treatments performed by chiropractors also have multiple biochemical results. Levels of endorphins increase, your stress hormones decrease, blood pressure goes down, and your immune system gets a boost.

What health conditions does chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic care effectively treats many health conditions, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Migraines
  • Herniated or bulging disc
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Chronic neck or back pain

Chiropractic treatment is especially beneficial for acute and chronic pain conditions because it relieves pain and promotes healing. It also produces body-wide benefits such as:

  • Increased mobility
  • Relaxed muscles
  • Improved energy and performance
  • Better balance
  • Stronger muscles

When you receive chiropractic care, your stress levels go down, while your well-being improves.
