More and more Americans seek alternative health care every day and specifically chiropractic carehas seen greater numbers every day, and for a wide variety of conditions. According to a recent study more than 18 million adults and over 2 million children have received chiropractic services in the last 12 months.
As a health profession, chiropractic care focuses on the spine and how it relates to and functions with the rest of your body. The spine is central to chiropractic care because spine health is directly related to the health of the nervous system. The nervous system controls all the organs in the body, and is directed by the brain. The brain communicates through nerves that run through your spinal cord, so it only makes sense that the spine is a major component of overall health.
If your body has nerve interference, chiropractors remove these interferences (also known as subluxations) mainly through spinal adjustments. Pain, numbing and tingling can all be signs of interference, but inflammation can also occur with no warning signs.
Eliminating this interference aids the body’s natural healing process, and will result in increased function of the organ and relief from pain. Conditions that commonly improve with spinal adjustments or manipulations include: headaches, back pain, allergies, asthma, neck pain including whiplash, upper and lower extremities, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, pregnancy, ear infections, colic, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic pain.
