Although some people believe that chiropractic care is only for people who have been in an accident or who suffer from chronic pain in the neck and back, chiropractic care can be used to treat minor and temporary pain. The daily stresses of life compile over time and affect your body more than you may realise. Chiropractic care is a natural approach to health care that aims at restoring the alignment of your spine. Chiropractors use an array of precision techniques to locate and gently manipulate vertebral misalignments.
A Proactive Approach
One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care comes from its ability to maintain your body and help relieve pain. Traditional medicine simply attempts to treat the symptoms of a disease after it appears. Licensed chiropractors, like the professionals at Hawthorne Chiropractic, understand how many different factors including your heredity, sleep patterns, nutrition, fitness and even your environment play a role in your overall health.
Increases Range of Movement
Chiropractic care helps you to manage your pain and strengthen your muscles. This often leads to an increase in one’s range of motion following a traumatic event such as an accident or sports injury. Chiropractors utilise precision adjustments and recommend special exercises to continue your recovery. Chiropractic care may even give you back most or all of your range of movement after an accident.
While your chiropractor might have the ability to treat your pain, sometimes it is necessary to recommend a traditional doctor as well. Hawthorne Chiropractic, and most other chiropractic care centres, place your health at the highest priority and know when to get a traditional practitioner involved. This provides the patient with a peace of mind that they are in good hands.
