What is Chiropractic Care?
The practice of chiropractic is a treatment system based on the premise that the alignment of the musculoskeletal system can affect the overall health of the body. Chiropractors acknowledge stress reduction, balanced motion, exercise and nutrition can positively affect your health.
While it may sound complicated, somato neurophysiology is a way of explaining how the nervous system functions. “Somato” means the body, and “neuro” means the nerves or nervous system. “Physiology” is the functioning of a living organism. When your spine is stressed it can contribute to functional deficiencies such as muscle tightening and impaired range of motion resulting in chronic pain/or additional health issues; high blood pressure, arthritis and altered gait.
How Preventive Care Can Help
While some musculoskeletal problems can occur due to injury, others develop over time like poor posture. For instance to many hours working at a computer can cause your neck muscles to become tight, leading to headaches aka text neck. As a result of this discomfort, you limit your activity, causing additional muscles to deteriorate, causing more pain. Regular chiropractic adjustments performed by our experienced chiropractor can help manage the repetitive activities of daily living. Our chiropractor may also recommend a corrective exercise routine designed to keep your muscles loose. Our chiropractor may also recommend dietary improvements and nutritional supplements to enhance the function of your body.
Is Preventive Chiropractic Care Cost-Effective?
The American Academy of Family Physicians states that preventive care does prevent disease. Also, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress says that chiropractic treatments for back pain can provide better results at a lower cost than surgery.
At Wellness and Chiropractic Care, preventive care is our main focus. You are less likely to need treatment for chronic pain following regular chiropractic care supplemented by corrective exercises and nutritional counseling.
