Chiropractic treatments are used to correct the alignment of the spine and joints. When the spine is out of alignment, it brought back into alignment through a series of manipulations and adjustments. The aim of the chiropractor is to maintain the spine and the nervous system in balance without the use of drugs or surgery.
If any individual’s joints move more or less than they should or joints move in an abnormal way, this will affect the alignment of the spine. Manipulations and adjustments help with the working of the spine and in turn this helps the muscles, ligaments and joints.
Some of the problems that can be alleviated through chiropractic therapy when the spine is brought back into alignment -include lumbago, sciatic and headaches. Some people are not aware their spine is out of alignment and when it is put back in, a pain that they are experiencing in another part of the body can disappear.
Many patients have a relaxed feeling after a session. In the early stages of a treatment, there may be some discomfort or mild pain because the joints are conditioned and the range of motion is increased.
For people who have experienced back and neck pain for many years, they will start to feel more confident because they are becoming capable of doing things that they have not been able to do for years.
Chiropractic therapy was first tried and practiced by DD Palmer who was a Canadian healer. He experimented on some patients and believed when he aligned their spine he got “miraculous” results. The therapy has come a long way since 1895.
Chiropractic is one form of natural treatment that has been accepted by the medical fraternity and some doctors will even refer patients to a chiropractor. Chiropractors treat the root cause of the pain and thereby eliminate the use of drugs.
