Chiropractic Care Overview
We are born with the ability to heal and recover from an illness or injury. It is our nervous system that regulates this inborn healing capability. Chiropractic is based upon the scientific fact that our body is self-regulating and self- healing. These healing functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of our body.
The 24 hour moving and weight bearing bones of the spinal column is a common interference to our nervous system. When there is a loss of normal position or motion of these bones, this can irritate the nerves, tissues, and muscles surrounding these bones. This can result in impaired nervous system function. The result can be pain or other abnormal bodily functions.
How Chiropractic Works
Chiropractic works by restoring your body’s inborn ability to be healthy. When the nervous system is working properly, your cells, tissues and organs are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to improving your health is to locate and help remove any interference that may be impacting your natural state of health. Our Palm Harbor chiropractic care offers state-of-the-art techniques to provide you with the treatment available.
After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, your Palm Harbor chiropractor performs a thorough orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examination. Additionally, x rays may be taken to uncover structural and functional problems associated with your spinal column. These detailed examinations help to identify any areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system deficit.
Chiropractors emphasize the treatment of spinal conditions since correct spinal alignment can affect the proper function of other bodily areas and systems. Additionally, they can provide proper nutritional advice to augment recovery. Additionally, some chiropractors specialize in the treatment of other musculoskeletal conditions, such as those involving sports injuries.
The main method of treatment used by your chiropractor is called an adjustment. It is a specialized, controlled and safe pressure applied to your spine. An adjustment restores the proper motion and position of your vertebrae.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective and proven by scientific evidence. Over the past 20 years, several independent research studies have been conducted. The results demonstrated that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches, as well as other conditions relating to the spine. Based upon these scientific study results, the consensus is that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems. The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on their problem and how long it has existed.
