What is chiropractic care?

A chiropractor is a board-certified medical professional that specializes in diagnosing, treating, and providing patient education to prevent disorders involving the musculoskeletal system including ligaments, discs, cartilage, connective tissue, tendons, and bones.

Chiropractic care is an alternative form of medicine designed to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and restore lost range of motion of the spine, joints, and other areas of the musculoskeletal system.

Proper structure of the human body is necessary to aid in the proper function of the many systems that work together day in and day out. After an injury or extreme stress, the body is negatively impacted in many ways including mental health, muscle strength, flexibility, neurological health, and range of motion. With the help of a licensed chiropractor, you can experience quicker recovery times, improved moods, and increased energy.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care offers many benefits, including the below:

Restore range of motion

After a significant injury, your range of motion is often affected, whether it is a loss of flexibility in the spine or the inability to extend a limb normally. An impaired range of motion is often the result of misaligned joints, eventually leading to a buildup of scar tissue and increased inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments allow for specialized movements with state-of-the-art equipment to return joints to their original location for optimal movement.

Reduce inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s response to healing an injury. However, when too much inflammation forms, it can harm ones-healthy tissue. When left untreated, a buildup of inflammation can lead to increased pain, stiffness, insomnia, and common mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Adjustments made by your chiropractor can restore proper placement of the spinal cord or other affected areas, signaling the body to reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines to reduce pain and stiffness.

Eliminate pain

Three main hormones are affected after an injury - oxytocin, neurotensin, and cortisol. These hormones work together to provide pain relief, decreased stress, and an overall healthy feeling to the body. But, when an injury occurs it can reduce or block the production of these hormones. With proper alignment, the body can produce sufficient levels of neurotensin, cortisol, and oxytocin to restore harmony and a pain-free day.

An older study conducted in 2012 shows that 12 weeks of chiropractic care was more beneficial in improving neck pain than treating the pain with medication alone. Many traditional doctors prescribe pain relievers to patients experiencing chronic pain. Unfortunately, these opioid medications have a high dependence level. Alleviating symptoms of pain through chiropractic care can help to manage pain and reduce the dependence and/or abuse of opioid medications.

Restore range of motion

Research suggests that 2 out of 3 adults in the United States alone experience tension headaches. These types of headaches often originate in the neck and can cause symptoms of general neck pain, eye strain, stress, or even insomnia. By performing specialized manipulations to the thoracic and cervical spine, chiropractic treatment can eliminate tension that has been building in the neck to reduce headaches.

Heal scar tissue

Scar tissue forms from collagen as the body attempts to heal itself following damage to muscles or tendons from an injury. A buildup of scar tissue can lead to increased long-term pain, stiffness throughout the body, tightness, and difficulty moving. With time, the body can naturally heal the affected tissue, but if you are experiencing pain or other negative symptoms, it might be time to seek treatment. Chiropractic adjustments utilize specific movement techniques to break down scar tissue, promoting healing and eliminating symptoms.

Alternative, non-invasive treatment

After an automobile accident, the last thing people want to do is visit the hospital or doctor's office for invasive, potentially painful treatment. Chiropractic care is an alternative treatment option allowing non-invasive body movements and techniques used to restore proper alignment and body function. The quicker you receive chiropractic care after an accident, the better outcome you are likely to have.
