Chiropractic adjustments are the basis of chiropractic care. These adjustments are safe and non-invasive, providing several benefits. We offer chiropractic adjustments and treatments at East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center in St Cloud, FL.
What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is also known as spinal manipulation. Our chiropractor uses pressure or movements to realign spinal joints. However, chiropractic care isn't limited to the spine. These techniques are used to align any joint in the body.
What Can a Chiropractor Treat?
Many people visit our chiropractor for back pain. However, traditional treatments typically focus on managing symptoms rather than correcting misalignment, which may be causing your pain. Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to realign the spine, which can relieve back pain.
Chiropractors can treat many conditions. A list of these conditions is included below:
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
They can also relieve headaches and muscle aches. In addition, with chiropractic care, individuals with sports injuries may recover quickly and experience less pain.
What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustment has several benefits. The most obvious and sought-after benefit is pain relief. However, adjustments can also improve your range of motion.
Other benefits are more surprising. Spinal manipulation improves blood flow to your brain and other areas of the body. This circulation can help relieve pain, inflammation, and speed healing. Increased blood flow to the brain can also improve neurological conditions. It's also beneficial for sciatica. Individuals who receive chiropractic treatment for sciatica experience fewer days of pain and reduced pain on days it does occur.
Why Chiropractic Care?
Aside from the benefits of chiropractic treatment, the biggest reason to consider this type of treatment is the low risk of side effects.
Conventional medicine often treats pain conditions with medications, which have many concerning side effects. Surgery also has a high risk of side effects and doesn't always provide long-term relief. On the other hand, chiropractic care has a low risk of side effects. Therefore, we can use these gentle adjustments along with conventional medicine.
Spinal manipulation is the mainstay of chiropractic treatments. However, chiropractors often offer complementary therapies. This therapy is part of a holistic view of health, which means treating the entire person for wellness.
These therapies can include lifestyle and nutrition advice, corrective exercises, and massage therapy. Along with chiropractic adjustment, these treatments can help your current issues and prevent future problems.
