Chiropractic Adjustments Improve Nervous System Function and Alleviate Pain
Chiropractic care is based on the diagnosis and manipulation of misalignments of the joints, primarily those found in the spinal column. These misalignments (referred to as subluxations) can cause other issues in the body that may start affecting the nerves, muscles and organs if left untreated. Spinal adjustments realign the spinal column to fix these subluxations and help patients who suffer from many ailments and injuries that cause chronic pain in the back, neck and other areas of the body.
What to Expect When Visiting Peak Medical for Chiropractic Care
A physical exam is an important part of any chiropractic regime. During the exam, our chiropractors will assess your range for motion, reflexes and muscle strength. The chiropractor will pay especially close attention to the neck and spine areas, which is the pathway to the nervous system. From there, the chiropractor will examine any specific areas of discomfort in the body.
An x-ray of your spine may also be taken. The x-ray helps your chiropractor understand the structure and integrity of your bone anatomy. The x-ray also helps the chiropractor see the extent of wear-and-tear and any anomalies in your spine.
After the examination, a chiropractic adjustment may be recommended. The adjustment will fix any misaligments in the spine (subluxations) and provide immediate pain relief. Not only can chiropractic adjustments help to align the body but they can help people who suffer from other issues including digestive problems, sleep disorders, headaches and fatigue. The spine is the highway that connects the entire body. From brain to tailbone as well as extending outwards, the spine controls and regulates many parts of the body that people do not even realize. There are countless issues that chiropractic care can help with, either as a primary route of treatment or as supplemental with other treatment programs.
