Chiropractic care is an approach to healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the body, the brain, and the nervous system.
Chiropractors identify the areas on the spine where subluxations or misalignments are weakening the connection between the brain and the body, then adjust the spine to alleviate excess pressure on the affected nerves.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care helps patients get out of pain and feel better using spinal adjustments and spinal remodeling. In many instances, the nature of chiropractic care prevents the need for drugs or surgical intervention. In fact, a growing number of people prefer to see a chiropractor as their primary care provider!
What is Corrective Chiropractic Care?
Unlike traditional chiropractic care that primarily focuses on immediate pain relief, corrective chiropractic care goes one step further by addressing the underlying cause behind the patient’s pain, discomfort, and state of health.
Spinal adjustments by traditional chiropractors only manage the patient’s pain temporarily – a few hours, days, or even a week. But soon thereafter the pain and discomfort returns, because the overall shape or structure of the spine wasn’t corrected or fixed.
Corrective chiropractic takes a more comprehensive approach to treatment of the underlying causes of weakness, pain, and other health conditions. Through the use of adjustments, mirror image exercises, and traction, corrective care chiropractors are able to realign the spine back to its “normal” shape or structure, and therefore fix the root cause of ongoing pain, weakness, or even some diseases.
