What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that focuses on the structure of the body, aiming for optimal function. Chiropractic is based on the belief that with a healthy lifestyle and normally functioning nerves and spine, the body is better able to heal itself, allowing patients to live healthier and more active lives. Chiropractic treatment focuses on adjustments to correct spinal malfunctions, called subluxations, in order to remove interference to the spinal cord and the nerves that exit between the bones of the spine.
What Does Chiropractic Care Address?
Chiropractic treatment provides relief, rehabilitation, and preventive care. Relief care is what typically brings a patient to a chiropractor for the first time. Relief care addresses the acute or chronic pain that is affecting a person’s life and wellbeing. Whenever possible, the doctor provides relief during the initial visit although follow-up care is often necessary to fully address the underlying problem (rehabilitative care). Then patients often find that they feel better and more energetic after appointments and see Dr. Wruck regularly for preventive care to keep the body in correct alignment and avoid further injury or discomfort.
What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
There are many benefits to chiropractic care including:
- Spinal manipulation is more effective than other treatments for low back pain.
- Chiropractic adjustments take less time and the benefits last longer.
- Chiropractic adjustments are safe.
- Chiropractic care costs less and results in fewer lost workdays
Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive and usually painless. It offers a drug-free alternative for those who can’t or don’t want to take pain medication. A trip to the chiropractor can be an enjoyable and rewarding activity you do because you value your health.
