Life often involves the unexpected. Unfortunately, this can manifest in injury, accident, or sudden onset of pain - all of which can impact and even alter your daily life. If you are experiencing pain due to an accident, injury, or condition, consider your non-surgical treatment options with chiropractic care.
Sometimes even initially minor injuries or pain develop into chronic, debilitating conditions. Something as little as sitting in the same position for extended periods of time can stress your back and cause severe pain. That is why it is essential to seek treatment and care for injuries or chronic conditions early on, to cease or mitigate the condition from worsening and reduce pain.
In many circumstances, chiropractic care can help ease symptoms from personal injury or auto injury.
If you’re experience any of the following, you might want to seek chiropractic care:
- Neck/shoulder pain
- Back pain
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Ankle/foot pain
- Knee pain
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Pain from poor posture
What Is Chiropractic Care?
If you’re considering seeking chiropractic care to treat a condition or injury you have, it’s important to understand what a chiropractor can do.
The goal in chiropractic care is for the chiropractor to correct misalignments in the spine, thereby returning the spinal cord, and central nervous system, back to its original form.
The interconnectedness of the body all leads back to the spinal cord, which hosts the central nervous system: the body’s main way of communicating to the brain.
When a chiropractic works out the misalignments and reduces the pressure on nerves and joints, your body is brought back in sync, and can function properly once again.
What Causes Spinal Misalignment?
Spinal misalignments can happen for numerous reasons. Poor posture or sitting/standing in the same position for too long can put stress on the spine, resulting in pain. Workplace injury or injury via car accident are other forms of injuries that can be treated with chiropractic care. Even the natural aging process can result in spinal misalignments.
With spinal misalignment, nerve issues that initially appear unrelated to the spine can arise. Since the spinal cord is the home of the central nervous system, pressure or pain to that area can cause ripple effects that are felt throughout the body. Spinal misalignment can also alter your range of motion.
Sometimes, these conditions are treated via harsh medications or invasive surgery. But chiropractic care is a nonsurgical, noninvasive technique that has shown great success in getting people out of pain and bringing them back into alignment.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
The process of making these chiropractic adjustments is rarely uncomfortable, as chiropractic doctors move at a pace acceptable by the patient. However, there may be slight discomfort following treatments. This should resolve within 1-2 days after treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments include gentle manipulations of the spine to restore it to its original form and function. These readjustments can reduce inflammation and restore blood flow, both of which can allow damaged or altered tissue to heal.
