Conditions Frequently Treated by Chiropractic
Chiropractic treatment is helpful for many problems. The ones that we see most often include:
Lower back pain
Stiff or aching muscles
Pain after an automobile accident
Adjustments are used to realign joints that are irritating nearby nerve tissue. This gentle realignment decreases pressure on and irritation of the nerves, relieving pain and increasing the range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can be used on patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors.
To perform adjustments, our chiropractors use their hands or specialized instruments to apply controlled force to a spinal joint. During adjustment, you may hear popping as the joint capsules release air from the spinal joints. The overall goal of the adjustment is to improve spinal motion and release any nerve impingement.
The benefits of chiropractic adjustments are immense:
Back and neck pain relief
Reduced blood pressure
Relief from headaches
Reduced colic in infants
Improved athletic performance
Enhanced range of motion
Scientific Proof That Chiropractic Works
If you’re still not sure you want to pursue chiropractic treatment, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has collected research from professional journals such as The Spine Journal, The Lancet, and The Journal of the American Medical Association, among others, that all indicate the clinical benefits of chiropractic care.
