As anyone who has ever experienced pain knows, it can be debilitating. Even worse when that pain is caused by a problem that is not obvious. The most common conditions that we see in our office are neck and back pain (specifically in the mid-back and upper back) along with pinched nerves involving the extremities.
There are times when back pain can be caused by a variety of ailments, including dislocations, tears, fractures, infections, and even poor posture. Others are caused by misalignment of the spinal vertebrae, an injury, or trauma such as a car accident. While some treatments can help alleviate the pain, many of these conditions require chiropractic medicine to help restore the affected joint and nervous system.
It’s been said that the chiropractic profession is the oldest form of medicine. The first recorded evidence of the existence of chiropractic care goes as far back as 2500 BC when a Chinese physician named Hua Tuo was credited with discovering ways of relieving pain and treating diseases with the use of manipulation and the mobilization of joints.
Now it is used primarily to treat musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and muscular problems, joint problems, and injuries. Chiropractic care is now used by over 12 million people in the United States and as many as 50 million worldwide.
Chiropractic is a health care profession dedicated to enhancing and maintaining the body’s innate intelligence, using manual adjustments and mobilization of the joints and tissues of the spine, the musculoskeletal system, and the nervous system. In the United States, the chiropractic care system is a legally regulated healthcare profession based on natural or alternative medicine principles.
This kind of health care is the best way to get your nervous system back under control. It is a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free way to treat your entire nervous system. Chiropractic care is based on the nervous system connecting the body to the mind. Through adjustment and manipulation of the spine, neck, and extremities, chiropractors are able to help patients relieve symptoms and restore their nervous system balance so that pain is no longer a constant companion.
If you’ve ever attended a chiropractor’s office, you’ve likely seen them adjust a patient’s spine by pushing and pulling on each vertebra. This process is known as chiropractic adjustment and is used to treat a wide range of complaints and conditions. In order to understand chiropractic adjustments, it’s important to know what they aren’t.
While chiropractic adjustments can be a beneficial part of your health regimen, you should understand what they are and how they are performed. The most common type of chiropractic adjustment is known as spinal adjustment. A spinal adjustment is a technique chiropractors use to relieve pain and stiffness in the back, neck, and shoulders. The most common technique is spinal adjustment. It involves pulling the patient’s vertebrae apart, which allows the joints of the spine to realign.
A chiropractic technique is any form of treatment that manipulates the nervous system to reduce pain and restore function. The chiropractor diagnoses the cause of the pain that you are feeling and then treats that problem. This may include manipulating your spine to realign the vertebrae, neck, and discs or providing you with an adjustment.
Can chiropractic care help with healthy growth?
The first thing many people notice about their hair is its appearance. This is especially true for women, who spend a substantial amount of time each day working with their hair.
Hair loss is one of the most common hair-related complaints. It is not uncommon for many to lose an average of one to two pounds of hair each year. Many people suffer from chronic hair loss for a variety of reasons, including certain medical conditions, medications, hormone imbalances, or genetic conditions. Hair loss can also be a symptom of a specific medical condition. For example, someone may be experiencing hair loss as a result of thyroid disease, diabetes, or a side effect of certain medications.
If you suffer from hair loss, you may have considered trying to add some growth to your locks. Instead of taking a pill or using treatment options like Rogaine, your local chiropractor with experience in medical and chiropractic treatments for hair loss can help you. These types of adjustments can actually reverse some of the hair loss you may have experienced in the past, as well as improve your overall appearance.
You can use chiropractic adjustments to treat hair loss, although how well they work depends on what caused the hair loss in the first place. For example, if your hair loss is due to inflammation, you can use adjustments to help relieve the inflammation. If your hair loss is due to a hormonal imbalance, you may be able to use adjustments to help restore hormone balance.
