What conditions might benefit from Chiropractic Therapy?
Chiropractic therapy is suited for treatment of problems in people of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Even the in-between – pre-natal are well served by chiropractic as are those suffering from osteo arthritis as non-manipulation methods can be used.
Chiropractors look at the condition of the whole musculoskeletal system and treat the root of the problem, not the symptoms.
Prescribed medication will only work on symptoms, so in effect only provide a masking effect.
Chiropractors make sure not only that the joints are moving properly, but also that surrounding muscles are functioning well.
As chiropractic revolves around the correct alignment of the spine and, consequently, the nervous system, the entire body can be treated through chiropractor care.
Some of the most common reasons for chiropractic therapy are:
strains and sprains from daily activities
work and sports-related injuries
restricted movement in the back, shoulders, neck or limbs
However, as the central nervous system controls all areas of the body, then all areas benefit by chiropractic therapy.
Treatment of radicular pain by chiropractic is very effective as you will see in the video below.
Sometimes during an adjustment, the joint may ‘pop’.
This is known technically as joint ‘cavitation’.
This sound is created when gas bubbles are partially or totally collapsed as result of the chiropractic pressure being applied.
It normally provided patients with immediate relief and of course is totally safe when conducted by a professional Chiropractor.
