What a Chiropractor Can Help You With
Chiropractors help with a variety of conditions. Vida Integrated Health examines each patient and gives them an individualized treatment plan or approach to improve their condition. Here are some of the things a chiropractor can help you with!
1. Limited Joint Motion
The first thing a chiropractor can help with is joint motion. When you have limited joint movement, it makes even everyday tasks hard. Without proper care, that lack of free movement will worsen. The chiropractor will look at your range of motion and make a plan to increase mobility and flexibility. The plan may include strengthening exercises, goals, and a timeline. During routine visits at Vida Integrated Health, your chiropractic physician will note your progress and adjust the plan as needed.
2. Relieve Pinched Nerve and Soreness
A pinched nerve creates pain, muscle weakness, and numbness. A chiropractor will do an exam to locate the cause. Based on the source of the pain, they may choose to perform manual adjustments or give you exercises to loosen the nerves yourself. The treatment will restore your range of motion and decrease your pain.
3. Faster Recovery
An injury is devastating and debilitating for some people, especially athletes. People often want to get back to playing their sport as soon as possible. Continuing to play the same while injured would only make it worse, so instead of playing through the injury, your Chiropractor can provide you with modifications for you to continue to play but not continue to strain your injury. The recovery time for an injury depends a lot on the severity of the damage and your commitment to treatment, but our chiropractic care can help you progress toward a faster recovery.
4. Chronic Pain
Many people think the only way to manage chronic pain is by taking pain medicine. Chiropractors, however, have studied methods to relieve the pain without medication. They will assess the situation first to create the best plan. The combination of adjustments, treatments and strengthening exercises will begin to stop the pain long-term. Your chiropractor will also teach you methods to manage pain while it lasts. One thing to remember is that chiropractic care will not be an instant fix. You will see results over time.
5. Manual Adjustments
Sometimes you need a simple manual adjustment. Chiropractors do that too. A manual adjustment is when a chiropractic physician uses their hands to manipulate a joint. The purpose is to increase range of motion, reduce pain, and help realign joints. People often prefer this method if they are experiencing neck, back, or joint stiffness.
Another thing your chiropractor can help with is your posture. The chiropractor conducts a thorough exam, determines the cause of poor posture, and performs any adjustments. By finding the cause, your physician helps you prevent further harm to your posture.
7. Stimulating the Nervous System
Chiropractors do more than fix pain. They also treat the nervous system. Adjusting the spine lowers inflammation, controls blood pressure, and calms the brain.
Chiropractic care helps the entire body and play an important role in injury prevention. There is a reason every professional sports team has a Chiropractor on their medical team. You don’t need to have a bad injury to your joints or ligaments to experience the benefits!
Things to Know Before Seeing Your Chiropractor
It is best to be honest with your Chiropractor. The more details they have about your pain levels and injuries, the better they can help. It will also help you to avoid injuring yourself further.
It is normal to be nervous, especially for your first visit. Take note of any questions you have before starting your treatment. Your physician at Vida Integrated Health will be happy to answer your questions.
