What is Chiropractic Manipulation and How Can it Help?
The spine is an important part of the central nervous system because it connects the brain to the rest of the body. The spinal cord works with the brain as it helps our body to make decisions, cause automatic reflexes, feel emotions and send pain signals in the case of injury or inflammation in the body.
Chiropractic manipulation is the application of different types of pressure to the spine or other parts of the body in order to realign the spine or other parts of the musculoskeletal system, reduce pain in the body, increase functioning, and improve motion. It is a gentle way to heal from injury without the use of medicine or surgery.
The following are a few common problems that chiropractic manipulation can help with:
- Neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Chest pain
- Many other common problems
What Can I Expect During Chiropractic Care?
