Evidence-Informed Care for Spinal-Related Disorders
Chiropractic care is an effective, evidenced-informed approach to spinal-related disorders. The main focus of chiropractic care is to restore and maintain spinal health. Chiropractors base their techniques on drug-free therapies to prevent surgery and heavy medication use.
How Does Chiropractic Help Spinal Problems?
Chiropractic care works by restoring the function of your spinal vertebrae. If your body is stressed, ill or injured, it can affect the muscles of your entire body, including those surrounding your spine. This tenseness of the muscles surrounding the spine can, in turn, create unhealthy restriction and function of the spine. In some cases, nerve compression also results in numbness and tingling. If this happens continually, your spine will begin to show effects of degeneration, spinal arthritis and degenerative disc disease. Chiropractic care can restore healthy spinal functionality, helping your body improve and resolve symptoms and pain.
The foundation of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation. This form of treatment is used to restore normal function and movement to the spine. This process is also called spinal adjustment. During this process, spinal joints which are compressed and restricted, will be manually adjusted to decrease internal tension and restore normal vertebral movement and range of motion in the spine. When this tension is alleviated, the joints can maintain better lubrication, blood supply and movement, helping to reduce symptoms and future spinal degeneration.
Chiropractors have established treatment protocols with supporting evidence of spinal adjustment as a safe and effective treatment option for those suffering from spinal-related disorders. Spinal adjustments improve spinal health by decreasing degenerative symptoms of arthritis and improving joint function. For patients, this means it will be easier and less painful to move around, bend, twist and do all of the things you did before back pain.
