Most often, people go to chiropractors the first time for relief from some form of pain. But chiropractors treat a broad range of complaints, from back and neck pain to headaches, arthritis, disc issues, allergies and more. Moreover, people don’t need to have a specific complaint to benefit from a visit. Chiropractors also focus on on-going preventive and wellness care. Chiropractic care is effective for people of all ages, from infants to the elderly. So Yes, chiropractic care does work!
At West End Chiropractic and Wellness we utilize the most advanced chiropractic techniques in treating our patients. The most common procedure performed by Doctors of Chiropractic is called “Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy” but is more commonly known as a “Chiropractic Adjustment” or “Spinal Manipulation”.
The purpose of this procedure is to increase mobility and remove restrictions called subluxations in the joints of the body by applying a controlled and measured force to the joints. Joints of the body become restricted as a result of a single traumatic injury such as whiplash injury or a fall. Subluxations can also result from repetitive activities such as improper lifting and poor posture, over an extended period of time. “Chiropractic Adjustments” or “Spinal Manipulation”, as they are commonly known, remove the subluxation from the joint thereby restoring normal mobility and joint position and eliminating the associated pain and discomfort.
Subluxations do not always present as pain or musculoskeltal problems and therefore can have an effect on other functions of the body. Thus, it is important to have your spine checked as routine health maintenance.
