While the use of pain medication and corticosteroid injections are a common medical treatment for many joint and muscle problems, Chiropractic can also solve many ailments without the use of drugs
A chiropractor can help reduce inflammation, release a pinched nerve, improve movement, strength and flexibility of the spine, giving us the ability to feel better.
Chiropractic attributes structural problems in the body to imbalances between joints and nerves; in particular those affecting the spine, which are capable of generating dysfunctions in our body, especially in the central and peripheral nervous system.
A disorder in the spine can interfere with the nerves exiting the intervertebral foramen (the opening between the vertebrae).
The term for this misalignment or blockage is known as “subluxation”.
This can result in various symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headache, shoulder pain, paresthesia in the extremities, sciatica and various other more or less severe complaints.
The main difference that distinguishes Chiropractic from other health professions is the so-called spinal adjustment. A fundamental point is to understand that the restoration of the correct state of the spine is able to lead the organism to a self-healing process.
However, chiropractic treatment , is not only used to treat back pain, but is aimed at all people suffering from ailments caused by micro-trauma, stress and an incorrect lifestyle.
As it does not follow pharmacological therapies, chiropractic treatment is for everyone, including overweight people, pregnant women and children, without contraindications.
Checking our back and preventing or solving those ailments that prevent us from performing at our best can only improve our quality of life.
