A lot of potential patients ask us what chiropractic care is, and how it works. The quick answer is that, as people go through life, they often experience spinal misalignments called subluxations. These subluxations can produce any number of adverse health effects, including back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and other nervous system-related conditions.
For this reason, subluxations are often called “the silent killer.”
Chiropractors work to realign your vertebrae through specific chiropractic adjustments that correct subluxations – and bring your body back into balance.
When Is Chiropractic Care Needed?
Oftentimes, you might not notice when you have a misalignment in your spine. Just like you might not initially know that you have high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, you might not feel the symptoms of a subluxation – until you do.
Then, you’ll notice pain, tingling, numbness, and other nervous system sensations that are your body’s way of letting you know that something is very wrong with your spine.
That’s when most people start searching for a chiropractor – after experiencing this sort of pain and visiting their doctor to try more “traditional” pain relief methods. But even if you don’t have symptoms, you can visit a chiropractor as a preventative measure.
An initial evaluation can help prevent the sort of aggravating, chronic pain that most people wait far too long to relieve. But chiropractic doesn’t have to be your last-ditch answer, and you don’t have to wait until you notice a misalignment to visit a chiropractor.
