Benefits of Chiropractic
A Powerful Way to Get Rid of Pain
Studies show that chiropractic care can help reduce pain better than many medications. It can assist in the relief of, or even the treatment of, some health and body issues, like sciatica, neck pain, ear infections, scoliosis, lower back pain, headaches, and frozen shoulder syndrome.
Treatment at the Source
Many pain relief medications will only attack the symptoms and not the cause. A comprehensive history helps us identify what the cause of the pain is so that we can modify it and prevent further re-occurrences.
No Medication Involved
Taking medicine means that you can get relief or treatment from a health issue, but it might also mean that you have to deal with another concern – side effects. Many medications bring both positive and negative effects.
Complementing Other Relief and Treatment Procedures
It can become challenging to manage chronic pain because there will be what seems like never-ending relief and treatment procedures involved. Different therapies exist to help in the relief and cure of chronic aches and pains like oral medications, nerve blocks, and epidurals.
It’s Not Just for the Back
A common misconception of chiropractic is that it’s for the spine and nothing else. Much of the procedures involved in in chiropractic services involve all the muscles, nerves, and joints. It is common for chiropractors to assist with elbow and wrist pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, knee and ankle pain, jaw problems, muscle knots, headaches and migraines, “vertigo”, and many others disorders.
A retrospective analysis of 70,274 member-months, in a 7-year period, within an independent physician association (IPA), comparing medical management to chiropractic management, demonstrated decreases of 60.2% in-hospital admissions, 59.0% hospital days, 62.0% outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 83% pharmaceutical costs, when compared with conventional medicine IPA performance. This clearly demonstrates that chiropractic non-surgical non-pharmaceutical approaches generates reductions in both clinical and cost utilization, when compared with PCPs using conventional medicine alone.
Adjustments or Joint Manipulation
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be a safe and effective modality in the treatment for pain and injury, and can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions.
Chiropractors perform 95 percent of all adjustments in the world to restore function to the joints of the body. Chiropractic adjustments are performed by applying gentle, yet firm, pressure to a bone. The goal of any adjustment is to restore communication pathways between the muscle, nerves and brain, as well as assist the joint to move through it’s normal range of motion.
Adjustments can be performed while sitting, standing, or lying down. Some adjustments involve special instruments or tables and not all adjustments produce a clicking or popping sound.
Chiropractors take many factors, including size, weight, and muscle structure, into consideration, when deciding on which adjusting technique to use. Sometimes, ice, heat, electrical stimulation, laser, myofascial release, mobilization, acupuncture, or traction are used, prior to adjusting a joint complex.
Eighty percent of modernized humans experience one form of back pain or another, during the course of their lives. More men over the age of 45 are disabled by back pain than any other condition. It is the third most common reason for surgeries. Because of this, people complaining of back pain cannot be easily diagnosed. This is because the spine is such an incredibly complex structure of bones, muscles, nerves, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Injury or disease affecting any one or more of these structures can often trigger an episode of pain.
Lower back pain is often caused by a muscle strain. The erector spinae, or large paired muscles in the lower back that help keep your spine erect, can become inflamed and spasm. In more serious cases, the pain may be caused by a degenerative condition, such as arthritis, disc disease, or disc herniation.
A degenerative disc condition can sometimes cause a chain reaction of other events in your spine. When a disc is injured from trauma, microtrauma, or disease, it can allow additional undue pressure on other healthy structures, such as neighbouring discs, nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons.
Because the thoracic spine (mid-back) is the sturdiest part of the spine, it is less prone to injury. That said, upper back and neck pain, while less common than lower back pain, is often caused by irritation of the muscles, or a problem with a joint. Other less common causes of upper back pain include herniated or degenerative discs. That being said, upper back and neck pain is on the rise due to the postural habits created when using personal electronic devices.
