What is Chiropractic?
Empower Health, Mehlville, explains chiropractic care is the school of treatment that focuses on the musculoskeletal structure of the body to relieve pain and heal certain conditions. Chiropractic care can be performed as an alternative to medication or surgery, and can also be paired with medication or surgery for maximum healing.
Chiropractors achieve healing through the use of manipulation and adjustment. When joints become restricted as a result of traumatic events or repetitive stress, chiropractors utilize manipulation to restore joint mobility.
Chiropractic care is an effective method for healing pain connected to the bones, joints, connective tissue, and muscles. Common pains that are treated by chiropractic include muscle trains, sports injuries, injuries from accidents, focused on dealing with pain in the legs, arms, neck, back, and headaches.
What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
The best benefit of chiropractic care is that it is considered a natural treatment method, involving no medications and requiring no invasive surgery to heal the body. While medication is generally safe, there are some medications that can lead to adverse side effects, or there are people who might react negatively to certain medications. Invasive surgeries can lead to permanent changes to the body and are very traumatic to deal with.
Chiropractors can achieve healing through touch and manipulation alone, allowing the body to heal through its natural healing processes. The body is assisted in its healing, meaning patients can recover fully from long-term pains and conditions.
Some of the benefits that patients get from a visit to the chiropractor include:
– Improvements in blood pressure
– Treatment of sciatica
– Treatment of scoliosis
– Lower back pain and neck pain relief
– Headache relief
– Inflammation reduction
– Improved athletic performance
– Vertigo treatment
