Chiropractic Care From Our chiropractor in midfield, al
Most people have heard of a chiropractor, but you may not be sure exactly what one does. Or, you may think that the only thing chiropractors do is crack backs in a painful-looking way like they do on TV. The truth is that chiropractic care can provide pain-free, drug-free, non-invasive treatments for a variety of ailments ranging from old sports injuries to headaches.
Types of Chiropractic Care
The traditional form of chiropractic care is called spinal manipulation. This may be done either firmly and with a fair amount of force, or slowly and gently, depending on what your body needs. Chiropractors also treat non-spinal joints.
Chiropractors also offer additional services in many cases:
- Corrective exercises
- Lifestyle advice
- Postural screening
- Nutritional Counseling
Our chiropractors understand that the body is a system, and that when one part is not working properly, the rest of the system is affected. We know how to help you take simple but not obvious steps that can improve your condition. Treating the whole problem, including any underlying conditions, is how chiropractors help people solve their problems for good rather than merely obtaining some temporary improvement.
Conditions Our Chiropractor Treats
There are a wide variety of issues that our chiropractor can help you with:
- Car accident injuries
- Sports injuries
- Overuse injuries
- Work injuries
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- and much more!
Basically, if you have pain caused by a problem in the musculoskeletal system, a chiropractor may be able to help. Sometimes, the things that we can help with surprise people, such as headaches. However, headaches can be caused by muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, misalignments of the cervical (neck) vertebrae, and other similar issues. Our chiropractor can treat these problems and help relieve your headaches.
Why Chiropractic Care?
There are a number of benefits to seeking out chiropractic care before moving ahead with drugs or invasive procedures such as surgery. As chiropractic care becomes more widely understood, authorities in the medical field are starting to send their patients to chiropractors before taking potentially dangerous steps such as performing surgery or prescribing powerful medications. For many people, this will relieve their pain enough that they are able to move on with their life. Even for those who eventually go ahead with more invasive measures, chiropractic care can help improve comfort before and after the procedure, as well as assist in the healing process.
