Chiropractic: Improve Your Health Today!

March 29, 2018, 12:36 pm

Have you ever wondered what chiropractors really do?  Here it is in a nutshell: A Chiropractor re-aligns bones in the body that are slightly out of alignment, or mis-aligned.  These mis-alignments prevent nerves and blood flow to function at their full potential, which lead to many health problems.  The chiropractor removes the interference and the body heals itself.

Give yourself the gift of health by eating better, exercising, getting enough sleep, lowering stress, and seeing your chiropractor.  Chiropractic can also help prevent pain and dis-ease through spinal alignment, which allows all the nerves in the body to function properly.  This allows the immune system to fight off disease easier, and helps nerves to have enough nutrition and blood flow, which leads to every system and organ in the body being able to function better.  This results in less pain, better immunity, and overall better health.

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:

Arthritis: Exercise, Chiropractic Care, and Laser Therapy

March 6, 2018, 2:10 pm

What is the one of the most helpful ways to prevent and treat arthritis?  Exercise! Balanced with rest, it is critical for the treatment of arthritis. Chiropractic Care and Laser Therapy also provide great benefits to one suffering with arthritis.

Years ago, doctors hardly ever told arthritis patients to “go take a hike” or “go for a swim.” Arthritis was considered an inherent part of the aging process and a signal to a patient that it’s time to slow down. But not so anymore, recent research and clinical findings show that there is much more to life for arthritis patients than the traditional recommendation of bed rest and drug therapy.

It helps maintain healthy and strong muscles, joint mobility, flexibility, endurance, and helps control weight.  Rest, on the other hand, helps to decrease active joint inflammation, pain, and fatigue. For best results, arthritis patients need a good balance between the two: more rest during the active phase of arthritis, and more exercise during remission.  During acute systematic flares or local joint flares of arthritis, patients should put joints gently through their full range of motion once a day, with periods of rest.  To see how much rest is best during flares of arthritis, patients should talk to their health care providers.

Chiropractic care can also greatly help the arthritic patient.  Chiropractic adjustments help restore the body’s natural ability to function and heal itself, providing more relief to patients with arthritis.  Chiropractic care can reduce pain, help increase range of motion, lessen stiffness, and help increase circulation and nerve function to all areas of the body by removing interference to those nerves. Chiropractic helps the body to heal itself. Chiropractic is also a great alternative to drugs and other invasive therapies.

Laser therapy has also shown great benefits in reducing pain during flare ups. Laser therapy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the affected area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
