The Art of Balance Through Spinal Adjustments
Countless studies in chiropractic have been conducted for the past 20 years. Report after report has shown spinal adjustment decreases pain from head, neck, shoulder, back and ears that may result from auto accidents or from other injuries. Almost twenty percent of Americans have used the services of a chiropractor at some point in their lives and eighty percent of those reported significant relief of pain, better functioning and an increased sense of balance and wellbeing.
Chiropractic care is based on the premise that illness and pain are caused by misalignments in the skeletal structure. That is why chiropractors pay meticulous attention to the spine, as they evaluate its performance, construction and movement. Thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves extend down the spine from the brain and exit through several openings to create a complex network of communicating fibers which influence every single living tissue in our body.
Irritation of the spinal nerve roots, whether chemical or physical, more often than not, is the cause of body tissue and organ-malfunctions. The irritation or pain may be caused by accidents, falls, overexertion, stress and other factors that all play a role in the dislodgment of the spinal column. By reducing or eliminating this pain on the spinal nerves, our bodies will be allowed to operate more efficiently, effectively and comfortably.
In order to get to the core of what may be irritating the spinal nerve Doctors of Chiropractic utilize the same methodology as any other doctor by reviewing health history, physical assessment, laboratory analysis and X-ray evaluations.
A balance of chiropractic therapies, an exercise program, and a well maintained and healthy lifestyle will promote good mental health, fluid movement and physical energy.
