Chiropractic care is regularly dubbed an alternative method of treatment and has had its fair share of critics in the past, but now it is becoming more and more mainstream. Insurance policies cover it and even some states are legislating that chiro treatment should be undertaken before pain killing drugs are prescribed. It has been in existence since around 1896 when Daniel David Palmer became the “Father of Chiropractic.” He theorized that the body’s ability to heal lay in the proper function and establishing proper alignment of the musco-skeletal system which would enable the body to operate properly.
Here in our Manhatten branch of Back and Body, we use chiropractic treatment extensively. It’s been proven time and again to help people with back, neck and other joint pain. Many studies into the therapy have been undertaken and all conclude that chiropractic care does help and make a big difference in the reduction of pain and management of it.
Looking at patient satisfaction in how the treatment has helped them is also a huge indicator that the treatment does work. Google chiropractor in your area and you will find plenty of chiropractors with many 5 star reviews from happy and satisfied patients. True testimony to its healing power.
Here at Back and Body in Manhatten, we too have many 5 star reviews on Google and we aim to add to those all the time. Patient satisfaction is our number 1 priority in all treatments we provide, not just chiropractic care.
The true power of chiropractic treatment comes in its ability to attack the source of the problem. If we take, for example, sciatica. If you suffer from sciatica, then it’s probably that your sciatic nerve is either pinched or infringed upon in some way by the spine. Maybe a disc is herniated that’s pressing on it.
A GP will prescribe medication to help reduce the pain. That’s great, you get temporary relief while the medication is working, but you have to keep taking it until the condition improves. All it does is help the symptoms, not the cause. With chiropractic care, the treatment actually is aimed at fixing the problem that’s causing it. So decompressing joints and freeing that nerve so things work as they should in the body and the nerve functions properly. No more pain, tingling or numbness.
Of course, medication has its place and if you are in significant pain, then medication may be necessary to dull the pain while chiropractic treatment fixes the problem.
This is just one area that chiropractic helps and of course the biggest benefit to it is the minimal side effects. Moreover, regular chiropractic treatments formulate a preventative maintenance plan akin to having your car regularly serviced. Regular servicing generally means less chance of a breakdown.
