For over 120 years, chiropractic has been a natural choice of healthcare that millions of patients have chosen as their route to optimal health, but many people don’t know what a chiropractor is or what they do. After reading this information provided below, you should have a better understanding of what chiropractic for natural healthcare is and the benefits of being under their care.
What Is Chiropractic?
When people hear the term “chiropractor,” back and neck doctors come into their mind. Even though this is true that chiropractors address those areas, there is a much bigger component to the profession. Within the neck and back, we have our spine, and even deeper than the spine, we have our central nervous system which consists of the brain and spinal cord. With the brain receiving and sending out messages to the spinal cord out to the rest of the body, the nervous system is what allows us to do everything in our life: walk, talk, breathe, see, hear, and controls every organ in our body necessary for survival. Essentially, the definition of chiropractic is that it is a natural form of healthcare that addresses the nervous system by performing an adjustment/spinal manipulation to the spine itself, which in hand, influences the nervous system to return to maximal function.
What Conditions Do Chiropractors Treat?
The nervous system controls everything that we do, therefore is the cause of all the pain we experience. There is an endless number of conditions that chiropractors treat but neck pain, back pain, sciatica, radiculopathy symptoms, fibromyalgia, asthma, allergies and stomach issues are just a few things that chiropractors can help to treat and manage pain.
Who Can See A Chiropractor?
EVERYONE! Chiropractors treat patients from newborns all the way to 100+. Everyone has a nervous system and it is important to keep it at full capacity so that no disruptions occur, and patients can stay pain free and continue all the activities that they desire.
Chiropractors are great healthcare providers that are an alternative way to alleviate the pain and influence the nervous system without the use of any medications. Are next plan of action is to get a better understanding of the nervous system and how it works.
