Approximately 95% of all back pain is mechanical, and Chiropractors offer a mechanical solution to a mechanical problem. A Chiropractic adjustment is a hands on technique used to restore proper joint mechanics and correct the spinal subluxation. This helps to decrease pain and increase the passive motion of the joint. Chiropractic treatment, and in particular spinal adjustments, have been the subject of government reports and multi-disciplinary studies conducted over many years. The studies have demonstrated Chiropractic care to be a highly effective treatment for spinal conditions including general pain, loss of mobility, headaches and other related symptoms. Chiropractic care also focuses on improving overall wellness. Irritated or subluxated vertebral joints may obstruct the normal neural flow of information between the brain and the body. Nerves exit the brain, travel down the spinal cord and exit the spinal cord near spinal joints. Spinal nerves travel to every part of the body including muscles and organs.
This relationship between the spinal joints and the nerves may cause symptoms far removed from the spine. Thus removing spinal joint subluxations and the neural interference that subluxations cause can improve your general sense of well being, increase spinal joint mobility and decrease joint pain. As a result most patients feel better with Chiropractic care.
