Why Chiropractic Works
Chiropractic adjustments have been used to treat illness and pain since 1895 when Daniel David Palmer adjusted his first patient. Chiropractic is the direct treatment for misalignments of the spine called adjustments. When a spinal bone is misaligned, not only can a person experience pain, but the entire functioning of all parts of the body can be reduced. The brain’s only way to get signals to all parts of the body is through the spinal cord. When misalignments of the vertebrae occur, the signals from the brain are reduced as pressure is applied to the spinal cord. Be assured, the brain’s signals can still get through, but not as efficiently. This creates misalignment within the body. Chiropractic care moves vertebrae back into place via manual adjustment methods. This allows for free signal movement throughout the spine resulting in full communication from the brain to all parts of the body.
How does Massage Partner with Chiropractic Care?
How do chiropractors move the vertebrae back into the proper position- Adjustments! The problem with getting an adjustment is, at times, the muscle around the spine becomes so tense that the body will not allow the bone to move. This tense muscle response is a natural body reaction. The body doesn’t know the adjustment is coming to help! It simply knows the bone is out of position and responds by locking up to further protect the spine from injury. This is the root cause of back pain in many individuals. In such a case, your west Edmonton chiropractor may recommend massage along with chiropractic care. The massage will help loosen up the muscle to allow the adjustment to move the bone. At Chirocare Centre, you have the advantage of your chiropractor providing diagnosis directly to the massage therapist for improved and continuity of care. Massage along with proper chiropractic adjustments, can get your body back into optimal health very quickly.
