The Association of Chiropractic College defines chiropractics as, “a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”
The main objective of Back to Health Chiropractic & Wellness is to restore and optimize your health. While many people associate chiropractic with spinal pain relief, our treatments will focus on the back, neck, and other regions of the body to help eliminate physical pain. The Association of Chiropractic Colleges defines the purpose of chiropractic as means to “optimize health.”
Chiropractic is more than just the treatment of back pain – it is a solution to alleviating pain commonly caused by the nervous system. The relationship between the spine and nervous system allows us to target painful areas and help optimize your health.
The Nervous System directs and coordinates all cellular functions in the body from living cells to tissue and even organs. With such an important system, our body requires protection, which is where the spinal column comes into play. It encases the nervous system including the spinal cord and nerve roots to ensure its protection.
While the spinal column plays a vital role in protecting the nervous system, irritation can occur from biochemical and structural problems. The pain is often a result of direct mechanical pressure or inflammatory biochemicals released during a tissue injury. This can negatively impact the function of the nervous system which in turn can inhibit the cells, organs & tissues sent by the irritated nerves.
In short, correcting spinal abnormalities and reducing the nervous system’s irritation can often alleviate pain in patients suffering from health conditions that may not have contributed to the spinal area.
Chiropractors work with patients to locate and treat vertebral subluxations. This refers to complex functional, structural and/or pathological joint changes that can inhibit your body’s neural integrity. Vertebral subluxations may also impact the function of your organ systems and overall general health.
Our chiropractors are trained in a variety of highly refined skills to locate any misalignments, fixations, vertebral subluxations or other abnormalities in the patient’s spine. If our chiropractors notice any spinal abnormalities, they will generally begin by applying specific pressure to the area to help correct the alignment.
In addition to gentle force, chiropractors use additional specialized techniques to make spinal adjustments. These include physical therapies, soft tissue techniques life massage, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and nutritional counseling. Each technique is deployed on the basis to help optimize a patient’s overall health.
Chiropractics and medical professionals take two very different approaches when it comes to treating patient ailments. and it’s important to know which solution is right for your situation.
Chiropractors base their services on a holistic approach that targets and treats the main causes of ailments causing the patient’s pain. This varies from a medical approach which often focuses on treating a patient’s symptoms rather than the primary cause.
While identifying symptoms can temporarily alleviate pain, chiropractors believe that correcting the primary cause from the start can provide many long-term health benefits.
