If you haven’t visited a chiropractor before, you might be missing out. Millions of people around the world have experienced the incredible benefits of chiropractic care. One of the best things about chiropractic care is it’s a drug-free and surgery-free path to healing naturally.
Why Get Chiropractic Adjustments?
Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common causes I’ve found are:
- A vertebra going out of place (“misalignment”) because of a slip or fall (i.e., “macrotrauma”).
- The entire spine misaligning globally due to poor posture.
- Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint.
- An inflammatory response caused by a poor diet, lack of pure water or psychological stress.
- Osteoporosis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs.
- Trigger points and tight back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.

There are a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic and how chiropractors are trained. Many chiropractic programs also incorporate an entire year of PhD-level advanced nutrition training.
Chiropractors and Medical doctors have very similar training. Chiropractors education typically requires more hours in every subject that medical doctors take except for pathology. The main difference is the philosophy behind where health comes from. In fact, did you know did you know Chiropractors believe in restoring the bodies innate intelligence, maximizing expression of function and allowing optimal healing from the inside. Medicine focuses on treating symptoms from the outside.
Health is not about changing the environment to better suit the body. Health is about strengthening & empowering the body to better adapt to its environment.
Chiropractic care is a more natural approach to treating back pain and many other health conditions than constant medicating and invasive procedures. Every ache, pain, and symptom in our bodies has an underlying cause. Though medication can offer temporary relief, it cannot correct functional problems of negatively affected spinal joints.
Moreover, chiropractic care is safe! We look to correct the underlying cause of the problem rather than simply masking the pain. Pain and symptoms are warning signs. Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, as your chiropractor, we will focus our attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and, if there are misalignments, helping the spine come back into alignment, creating proper function.
The discs between spinal bones can also be a source of pain. These rings of fibrous tissues act as connectors, and shock absorbers for the spine. Various types of trauma cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge which puts pressure on delicate nearby nerves. This affects the rest of your body through the central nervous system. The simplicity and success of a chiropractic approach to pain is popular among patients who want to avoid both risky surgery and constant discomfort.
Adjusting techniques are modified for each individual patient according to their unique spinal issues.
