17 Apr Chiropractic Care – Your Gateway to Pain Relief
Chronic pain patients spend a great deal of time looking for different pain relief options, with varying results.
Chiropractic treatments are a popular pain relief option that reduce pain, improve posture, increase flexibility and help to restore muscle balance in patients.
Chiropractic is a system of therapy focused on the body structure, especially the spine. Chiropractors help to restore the body’s natural alignment to relieve pain, improve function and to help the body heal itself.
While spinal manipulation is at the core of chiropractic treatments, chiropractic care may also include treatments, such as manual or manipulative therapies, posture and exercise education, and ergonomic training (how to walk, sit, and stand to limit back strain).
Chiropractic therapy is popular mainly because –
- It is a cost-effective, safe alternative to many other pain treatments.
- It has a high rate of client satisfaction.
Many chronic pain patients do not want to use medication (for fear of dependence) or undergo potentially risky surgery.
On the other hand, chiropractic treatments, such as spinal manipulation, have proven to be an effective treatment to reduce pain, advance physical therapy progress and decrease reliance on potentially addictive pain medications.
Chiropractors are one of the largest groups of health care providers, after physicians and dentists, in America.
