The human body is one tough machine. A miracle of Mother Nature’s handiwork, we are a superior creature surviving on a hostile planet. We have evolved in a world that made us tough and we all have the innate ability to heal ourselves.
In the struggle to survive, our bodies may be made less effective from too much stress or injured tissues, systems, and working parts. We have devised solutions to lessen pain and stimulate healing by natural means, but because of greed we have also created drugs that can mask the pain and do harm. These means enrich those who sell them, and do not heal. They actually burden the system by requiring it to handle a foreign substance as well as the injury that’s causing the pain.
Chiropractic the Only Honest Healthcare System
As chiropractors, we have the only honest and true healing systems for most body problems. Chiropractic, complemented by massage, the big and little brother as a team, are the perfect means of healing stressed and injured tissues.
Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, to align the body's musculoskeletal structure. This enables the body to heal itself and restore mobility without surgery or medication.
The practice of chiropractic is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissues like cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is most effective in an integrated clinic when combined with multiple disciplines including massage therapy, and conventional medical treatment.
Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissue, which reduces painful contractions and spasms. Massage can also reduce nerve compression. To understand this, consider that when muscles are contracted, they sometimes compress the nerves around them. Touching the skin or applying pressure releases the tension, relaxing muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the process.Medical Integration
A chiropractor first takes a medical history, performs a physical examination, and may use lab tests or diagnostic imaging to determine if treatment is appropriate for your back pain. The treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments in which the doctor manipulates the joints to improve range and quality of motion. Many chiropractors also incorporate nutritional counseling and exercise/rehabilitation into the treatment plan.
The goal of chiropractic care is the restoration of function and prevention of injury in addition to pain relief while enabling the body to heal itself. It helps in treating neck pain and headaches. Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.
While chiropractic care and massage are two distinct therapies, they can be applied in tandem to relieve problems of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care and massage are also often combined to achieve more beneficial results.
Chiropractic care involves the alleviation of joint dysfunctions that lead to irritation of the nerves. When the nerves are impinged or irritated, there is significant loss of function which can cause the muscle to tighten around the affected joint. The main aim of chiropractic care is to manage these joint problems to relieve the nerve and muscle affectations and influence organ system function. In some cases of joint dysfunction, the muscles around the joint become so tight, it makes the joint adjustment more difficult. In this line, massage and chiropractic care is combined to reduce muscle spasms, improve mobility and manage pain.
