Chiropractic care is based on the idea that the structure of the body and its function are connected. This connection has an impact on health. The spine not only works as our body’s basic support, but it also works to protect the spinal cord. A major portion of the peripheral nervous system is linked to the brain through the spinal cord. This explains why even the smallest spine injury can have a big impact on a person’s strength, sensation, and performance.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
According to a study by the National Institutes of Health, spinal manipulation is a helpful treatment for those that suffer from lower back pain, migraines, and dizziness. It also shows to be a useful treatment for a variety of joint conditions in extremities.
When paired with other soft tissue procedures and therapeutic exercises, manipulative treatments help to repair injuries and restore function. Maintenance care also improves posture, function, endurance, and sports performance while preventing minor injuries from becoming permanent.
Techniques and Treatments
There is a lot of evidence that supports the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care. Treatments are more cost-effective and comfortable for patients thanks to advanced tools and approaches.
The Atlas Orthogonal procedure works to restore balance to the spine. The technique accomplishes this by making precise, gentle, and controlled contact with the first vertebrae in the neck. This is because the procedure affects the most powerful control centers for balance, the brain stem and central nervous system.
Advanced chiropractic maintenance care usually takes a holistic approach. Other rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue therapies, and lifestyle changes are also recommended in addition to a treatment plan.
