Why You May Need A Chiropractic Adjustment
Did you know that the chiropractic profession is the most regulated and recognized CAM, or complimentary alternative medicine? Did you also know that as of last check, chiropractic care was regularly utilized by almost 8% of the U.S. population? This represents numbers higher than yoga, massage, acupuncture, and diet-based therapy.
Such facts attest to the nature of our backs. Your back is one of your most important pieces of anatomical hardware, maintaining the structure and flexibility of the entire body. When our backs suffer problems, we suffer. With this being such an integral part of the body, there is simply no way around this, take it from a chiropractic doctor that knows.
As so heartily dubbed, our “backs” are everything. At the center of this complex apparatus is the spinal column. The spine performs several key functions. Among these is the purpose of being flexible, yet strong support. In performing this job, the spine is made of individual discs, held together by special soft materials and fluids. In addition, the spine is a necessary information carrier. Along its length nerves carry messages throughout our bodies.
Mis- and -Dis-aligned
Having discussed the intended layout and function of the spine, we move on to the why’s and how’s of back problems; Why is a chiropractic adjustment such an integral part of human health and well-being? The shortened explanation for many back problems is that many of the parts in your spine can become misaligned. In some instances, you may be able to identify an exact, problem-causing event that did it. In many other cases however, the issue can often be born over time and innocuously, without notice.
Sports and the activities of an active lifestyle can create misalignments. A slide into home-plate can cause the pelvis to overturn, misaligning it and the back. A fluke football tackle can lead to a rib displacement, which in turn causes shifting in other areas. Even a strain in another muscle group can incite the spread of inflammation and distress throughout other areas, including the neck, shoulders, and back. These are some of the things I see bringing patients in seeking immediate relief through my chiropractic treatments.
Other chiropractic adjustment seekers are seen because of two other ironically clashing causes: sitting and lifting. Too much sitting, especially when done incorrectly, can cause a myriad of back problems. On the other hand, and at the other end of the spectrum, improper and overlifting can do major damage as well. These are just a few more examples of the versatility in which this crucial part of our bodies can be brought to a point of needing some real attention.
I know that you will feel a remarkable difference with my care of holistic based, chiropractic adjustments. After consulting with you and coming to understand your specific needs, body type, back issues, and so on, I create a custom plan. From here, I am armed with all I need, and ready to carry out treatment.
