Chiropractic care is a safe and proven treatment for many conditions and injuries that cause back pain. Chiropractic care can also help alleviate chronic headaches, neck and shoulder aches, and other body aches. People that suffer from autoimmune disorders and arthritis also can get relief from their back pain and other symptoms with chiropractic care. More than 22 million people visit a chiropractor for care every year. Chiropractic care can also help treat back pain caused by sports injuries, car accidents, and other situations that can cause acute back injury and pain.
What A Chiropractor Does
Chiropractors adjust the spine to make sure that it is properly aligned. Back pain, stress and strain are often caused by the spine being misaligned. The spine can become misaligned for many reasons including things like standing on your feet for work, sitting too long for work in a chair that doesn’t provide spine support, playing sports or working out, not wearing supportive shoes, and sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t support the spine. When your back is aligned properly the pain will disappear. First a chiropractor will give you an exam and find out what lifestyle habits you have that might be contributing to back pain. Then the chiropractor will give you a spinal adjustment and discuss with you ways that you can keep your spine healthy and aligned to prevent the back pain from coming back.
A chiropractor can also look for the symptoms of degenerative back disease that may cause serious pain later on. By finding these symptoms early you may be able to avoid significant back pain or even limited mobility in years to come.
