We all agree that regular chiropractic care is a valuable addition to our healthcare, but some of you may be wondering just what makes chiropractic care effective. Chiropractic care focuses on the health of the entire body, and not only addresses injuries but promotes a healthier, less painful way of life.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors provide non-invasive care that promotes science based approaches to many ailments. They provide adjustments to fix subluxations of the spine. A good chiropractor will find and correct subluxations, and can also provide advice to help ensure proper health and an overall better sense of wellness.
What is a Subluxation?
Subluxations are misalignments between two or more vertebra that may cause stress on the central nervous system leading to a multitude of problems. Some of these include malfunctions in your body and poor healing, which may result in lowered resistance to infection, allergies, illness, and disease. Subluxations may be caused by slips, falls, automobile accidents, sports injuries, bad posture, poor sleeping habits, stress, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, toxins, and even the birth process. All of these can cause significant damage to your spinal cord and your central nervous system.
How Safe is Chiropractic Care?
Although no medical intervention is 100 percent safe, chiropractic is one of the safest treatments out there. Most chiropractors believe in less invasive forms of treatment that do not include prescription drugs, medication and surgery.
