Chiropractic is a branch of medicine that uses natural and drug-free treatments to treat and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Because chiropractic is so effective in relieving pain and discomfort associated with injuries, many people only visit chiropractors after an auto accident, sports injury or a slip-and-fall accident at work. However, chiropractic offers much more than treatment for acute injuries, it can help provide the foundation for a healthy life.
Chiropractic adjustments address the posture and alignment of the spine and nervous systems, which directly affect every other system in the body. Injuries and spinal subluxations can block messages sent to and from the spinal cord, causing symptoms to manifest in many different ways throughout the body. For some, it may be pain and inflammation, while for others; it may be a functional response in one of the body’s many systems, such as the digestive, cardiovascular or respiratory systems.
Here at Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we find that many patients are surprised to discover the many ways they can benefit from chiropractic care and the other therapies offered at our office. The immediate effects of an adjustment include noticeable pain relief and greater flexibility. However, many people also report additional health benefits with continued adjustments, including relief from frequent headaches, ear infections, arthritis, asthma and even gastrointestinal problems.
Healthy people with no pain or other health issues can also benefit from chiropractic care. For example, periodic adjustments can be highly effective in maintaining the alignment of a healthy spinal column. This can help prevent the development of subluxations and also make the body more resistant to injury. Chiropractic can also protect against some of the musculoskeletal effects of pregnancy, including sciatica, increased pressure on the spine and hormones that cause looser joints.
Despite its many benefits, only 30 million people visit chiropractors every year, representing less than 10 percent of the total population. Yet everyone from babies and children to older adults can benefit from chiropractic care.
