The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Not only do we use modern marvels of medical science to provide you with the relief you need to live a full life, but we do so with a very human touch that carries compassion and a sincere desire to help you. Chiropractic care has exploded since its formal inception in 1895. Since then it has become the second largest of all primary health care professions.

What many people don’t know is that it takes at least eight years of highly specialized college or university training in order to graduate and earn a license. In fact, chiropractors have to meet incredibly strict educational standards and must pass a basic science examination, continually attend educational seminars and also pass a rigid chiropractic board examination. Chiropractic care has also managed to shake off the taboo of being a ‘pseudo’ science and has firmly established itself as a scientifically sound force among the healing arts. Of all the healing sciences, only chiropractic addresses the interrelationship between the body’s structure and function. It’s also the only one to effectively utilize a totally natural, drugless method of treatment through, primarily, adjustments of the spine.

Why You Should Consider Chiropractic

Our spine is what protects our central nervous system. Because it is something that shifts within the body, it is also susceptible to various stresses and forces that cause it to lose its structural position. These misalignments in the spine are called ‘vertebral subluxations’ and they restrict regular movement of the spine to cause nerve interference. These interferences result in:

  • decreased nervous system output
  • function
  • improper healing
  • accelerated aging

Often referred to as a ‘silent killer’, vertebral subluxations can be present for long periods of time without being diagnosed. Much in the same way that a cavity will eat away at a tooth. Essentially, vertebral subluxation can be caused by any force that the human body is unable to control such as:

  • car accidents
  • stress
  • sports injuries
  • work related trauma
  • repetitive movements
  • poor ergonomics

All these forces can result in the vertebral subluxations that are so devastating to your health, longevity and quality of life. One of the pillars of chiropractic care is also one of its major benefits and that is the refusal to treat your concerns with drugs and use only natural methods that treat the problem at its source rather than using drugs as a temporary sticking plaster. Further to this, drugs in the 21st century are wrought with dangerous side-effects and some patients may even struggle to get off them if they have been prescribed them for the longer-term.
