You may think of chiropractic care as being a treatment for people with back problems and joint pain. What you may not know is that chiropractic care is for everyone, not just for people with musculoskeletal problems. At Campbell Chiropractic in Castle Rock, CO, we treat patients with all kinds of conditions and even patients who believe themselves to be completely healthy. Knowing how chiropractic care can help you will help you decide whether or not now is the time for you to see a chiropractor.
So what does chiropractic care treat? Below is just a sample of the types of conditions helped by chiropractic care.
The reason that chiropractic care is able to treat so many problems in the body all at once is because it addresses the issue of subluxations in the spine. A subluxation is what occurs when the spinal cord becomes pinched in the vertebrae of the spine. When this happens, communication between the brain and other parts of the body breaks down. Being unable to receive signals from the brain, various systems of the body begin to malfunction, causing chronic pain, illness and more.
Using the following methods, chiropractic care stops subluxations from occurring:
Spinal adjustments. Chiropractors realign the vertebrae of the spine with spinal adjustments.
Stretches and exercise. Patients are taught stretches and exercise that will help keep the muscles strong and the spine straight.
Therapeutic massage. Therapeutic massage relaxes the muscles, helping patients to heal from injuries and feel more comfortable while maintaining proper posture.
Nutritional advice. Chiropractors help patients maintain a health weight by teaching them how to eat properly. This is good for the back, muscles and joints of the body
Chiropractic care isn't just healing, it's also preventative. Make an appointment with us today at Campbell Chiropractic and we'll show you how chiropractic care can help you get healthy and stay healthy.
