There are many reasons why you might choose to see a Chiropractor. Perhaps you’ve tried other treatment options with no success. Perhaps you’re simply seeking a more natural way to treat your health issues. A Chiropractor can offer you drug-free treatment options that are safe and effective.
Regardless of the reason you’ve chosen, you’ve made the first step in what will become an integral part of your continued good health. And the benefits of chiropractic treatment are vast. Even though you may only seek to treat one particular area of your body, the results will be felt all over. The main tenant of chiropractic treatment is that by simply re-aligning one tiny little joint, the entire body can then return to its correct position.
Chiropractic treatment for neck and back pain is especially effective. People with bad posture tend to get that way because something is slightly out of alignment within the spine. As a method of reducing pain, a patient may shift their position, and unknowingly exacerbating the problem, and causing it to spread. A Chiropractor can treat the source of the pain, sometimes in as little as a single visit. The result is that the patient is then able to use proper posture and be pain free.
As above, neck pain can be the result of poor posture. With chiropractic adjustments, the entire spine including the back and neck can be put back into proper alignment, thereby reducing neck pain.
We have treated many patients suffering from conditions such as Carpal Tunnel syndrome, who experience pain, tingling and even numbness in their wrists. Often these types of symptoms are the result of compression on the carpal nerves within the wrist. The culprit? Very often, the bones within the arms, wrists and hands need an adjustment.
By treating other structures within the body, such as the neck and back, many types of headaches can be treated and cured. In fact, a study by Duke University found that chiropractic treatment for headaches was more effective than taking pain medications!
Let’s face it, when our body hurts, it can cause us to have a feeling of tiredness and fatigue. The body is in a constant state of attempting to fight the pain, which can really wear us down. The good news is that most of our patients at CCC report a feeling of invigoration following the treatment.
Many people suffer from poor sleep quality due to pain issues within the body. On top of causing sleep disruptions, it can also lead to some of the other symptoms we’ve discussed so far. We all know that a good night’s rest is one of the most important things we can give our body, to allow it to recharge while we sleep. Treating body pain with chiropractic therapy can help improve your quality of sleep, and thereby lead to a reduction in other symptoms caused by lack of ZZs.
In today’s fast paced world, life is hectic and most of us probably feel that we have too much going on. Stress is one of the most detrimental conditions to suffer from, because while it originates in the mind, it very often manifests physically in the body. Even if you don’t have pain, chiropractic treatments can help reduce stress on your body and soul. Think of it as a spa treatment – one that not only makes you feel good physically, but also makes you feel better emotionally.
We have a large number of patients who have been referred to us after being injured in car accidents. Soft tissue injuries can be difficult to treat. With chiropractic treatments, the key is returning the body’s muscles and bones to their natural. The result is that soft tissue injuries heal much faster due to being supported properly by the skeletal system.
One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic treatment is that it’s a natural approach to treating pain. There are so many different dangerous pain medications on the market, many of which are habit forming. We help our patients to reduce and eventually discontinue the use of these dangerous medications. The only side effects they have are improved overall health!
Chiropractic treatments are proven to help strengthen the immune system. As noted above, when the body is in a constant state of pain, it’s in fight mode, using the immune system to help fight off what is attacking the body. By treating the entire body, our Chiropractors are able to help our patients become strong inside and out.
