Is Chiropractic the Best Treatment For You and Your Condition?
No....not necessarily. Chiropractic can be helpful for many conditions, or at least helpful for improving the condition at hand. But some conditions can not be helped with chiropractic care, and/ or there is poor response to treatment, perhaps due to the complexity of the problem or some other factors inhibiting proper healing. Of greatest importance in these cases is finding the best referral and guiding the patient in a direction that will best help them with their problem (e.g. massage, accupuncture, primary care phsician, medical specialist, etc.).
How Can Chiropractic Help You?
The human body is an incredibly sophisticated and well-organized machine equipped with an unlimited potential for self-healing.
Contained within our spine and cranium is our brain and cord, which sends millions of "instructions" or "commands" through complex nerve pathways out to all the organs and tissue in the body. All these organs and tissue in turn send "signals" back into the spine and cranium and back up into the cord and brain, confirming wether your your body is working as it should, and which instructions again need to be sent out commanding a response from the organ or tissue. Our body is meant to funtion perfectly with this complex, yet extremely efficient "check and balance system".
But due to imbalances created by both our external and internal environment, we no longer have ideal balance and function. Physical trauma (e.g. sports injuries, automobile accidents, and falls), emotional stress, postural imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and unbalanced biochemical reactions are all examples of stressors which directly or indirectly affect the body's normal nerve flow. We end up with spinal misalignments of the vertebra, called subluxations, which now create too much or too little nerve flow needed for the organs and tissue to function properly. The result is a wide variety of symptoms and conditions such as headache, neck and low back pain, joint pain, numbness, tingling, fatigue, insomnia, blood pressure problems, bowel dysfunction, hormonal imbalances...and the list goes on.
Chiropractic may be a helpful solution for you and your condition(s). Chiropractic is an all-natural "hands -on" approach to locating, treating and eliminating these nerve interferences and eventually helping to restore proper balance between the nervous system and all the strucures that are controlled by it.
