Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

One of the primary reasons for disease and pain in the body is improper spinal alignment. This is known as subluxation. With massage, carefully applied pressure, and manipulation of the joints and vertebrae, chiropractors are able to relieve irritation and pressure on the nerves while restoring the mobility of the joints. This lets the body regain its equilibrium as the nerve energy returns to its original pattern of flow and the healing process unfolds naturally.

Adequate chiropractic care of the lower back necessitates very little risk but yields great rewards.

Osteopathic or chiropractic adjustments can be of great assistance for pain relief in joint injuries, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and osteoarthritis, since these types of conditions are very responsive to mobilization. In addition, many patients experiencing severe headaches, high blood pressure, ear infections,  sinus issues, leg pain, arthritis, and many other disorders have seen marked improvements once chiropractic therapy was used.

Over the most recent decades. it has come to be accepted in the medical community that chiropractic treatments are a legitimate form of treatment for neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, in addition to being an effective treatment for patients suffering from pain in the lumbar region. Additionally, there are a majority of medical doctors who recognize diagnoses made by chiropractors and refer to it as the primary reference of treatment for musculoskeletal disorders.

Recent studies by the top medical journals confirming the benefits of chiropractic care include:

  1. A report issued in 1993 by the Ontario Ministry of Health stated that the best treatment for back pain was chiropractic care. They also made the suggestion that chiropractic care be used in the Canadian health care system.
  2. A report issued in 1994 by the Federal Agency for HealthCare Policy and Research asserted that for reduction of pain in the lumbar region, spinal manipulation proved an effective treatment without requiring radiculopathy.
  3. A report issued in 1996 by The New England Journal of Medicine published the result of a study which finds that patients of chiropractors were happier with their treatment than patients of primary doctors, managed care providers, or orthopedic care providers.
  4. A study performed in 1996 by the Journal Spine also reported that patients of chiropractors felt that their treatment was helpful more than those receiving care from medical doctors.
  5. A study performed in 2001 by the Center for Clinical Health Policy Research at Duke University came to the conclusion that spinal manipulation caused a significant improvement for patients suffering from cervicogenic headaches which start in the neck. Spinal manipulation also resulted in longer lasting healing and fewer side effects than traditional medication.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness?

If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
