Importance of Chiropractic Care
Many people seek chiropractic care only after an issue arises, but it can also be a preventative or regular health practice to incorporate into your life to maintain overall health and wellness. Regular chiropractic adjustments can not only be an important part of healing after an accident or injury, but also can be an important part of maintaining your health as a preventative measure as well.
The basic philosophy surrounding chiropractic care is that our bodies have the natural ability to heal when the conditions inside are right. Basically, part of this philosophy relates to the alignment of your spine and part of this relates to proper nutrition for your body to use to rebuild itself. Your chiropractor will help create this optimal healing environment for your body each time you go in for an adjustment. For this reason, your chiropractor may also incorporate nutritional advice into your plan.
You may hear your chiropractor talk about “subluxation.” Subluxation is the term used by a chiropractor to describe vertebrae out of alignment and then the loss of function because of that. Chiropractors are trained to recognize subluxation and that is what helps them know where to focus on making the adjustment.
You may consider chiropractic care as a way to manage or improve the following conditions:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Car accident injuries
- To maintain a healthy pregnancy
- Headaches and migraines
- Blood pressure
- Multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions
- And more
Prevention is the best medicine
Even if we have received chiropractic care in the past, anything we do daily has the potential to misalign our spines once again. A slip, fall, twist, poor posture, sports, accidents, carrying children, sitting too long or standing too long are all day-to-day activities that can easily send our spine out of alignment again.
