How Chiropractic Care May Help
Many people believe that chiropractic care is only for back pain and injury, but this is far from the case. Chiropractic treatment can have a variety of positive benefits for a wide range of physical ailments and conditions, from chronic pain to general discomfort. In fact, many patients who come to us simply want help relaxing their muscles and restoring balance to their body due to the impacts and strains of everyday life.
A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
"I have never walked out of a doctor's office feeling so confident about my visit and the care that I’m going to receive. Thank you so very much you have given me hope that I’ll get better and stronger in just my first visit."
"The overall evaluations of my problems were very thorough...By the time I left the office, I knew exactly what was wrong and I had a clear understanding of what the plan was to fix them!"
