Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
If you have been dealing with chronic pain or have been injured chiropractic treatment may be the best option for you. The benefits of chiropractic care can be experienced for a variety of health conditions.
Even those relatively “healthy” individuals with few, if any, health conditions can see the benefits of chiropractic care. The impact of life’s daily grind adds up stressing the human body in far greater ways than you might realize. Regular chiropractic adjustments can restore and maintain balance within, allowing the innately intelligent human body to heal itself, leaving you better prepared to live life to its fullest.
Routine chiropractic treatments can help maintain the body at the high level of activity life calls for, allowing the body to self-heal through proper alignment. Your spinal column serves as a conduit through which the human brain sends messages throughout the body. It is easy to see how protecting the integrity of this important structure is vital to the body’s optimal function and overall health.
Chiropractic Scientifically Explained
If you are looking for a scientific explanation of how chiropractic care works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures, by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules, and the body’s proprioception mechanism through the mechanoreceptors in the joints and periarticular tissues.
That's a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients in Colleyville report improvement in organic function, not only musculoskeletal benefits. To reiterate, this is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat systemic pathology, but does suggest that some who have systemic symptoms may see results from chiropractic treatment even without the presence of pain.
What is Chiropractic in General?
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A doctor of chiropractic will diagnose, treat and prevent injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles and bones. While a chiropractor will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective of the chiropractor is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs. As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Colleyville Chiropractic receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created. Should a patient require treatment outside the scope of chiropractic care they are referred to the appropriate medical specialist in our area. As the science of chiropractic has evolved so have the techniques used within its practice. Common treatment methods have grown to include nutritional counseling, orthotics, lifestyle modification / exercise programs and physical rehabilitation programs. While these adjunctive treatments are certainly beneficial, spinal and joint manipulation remains the primary and most effective mode of treatment by our clinic. Statistics reflect that nearly 95% of patients that seek chiropractic care in Colleyville do so as a result of musculoskeletal pain.
