Chiropractic is the largest and fastest growing form of alternative health care in the United States. Chiropractors are most well-known for helping people with low back pain, neck pain and headaches. However, since the discovery of chiropractic care people have also reported improvements in overall health and function.
A great many people in this country suffer through pain and discomfort in silence, hoping that it will go away on its own. Other people simply purchase over-the-counter pain-killers or ask their doctor to prescribe something stronger, to try to minimize the pain they’re going through. What most people don’t realize is that this is merely masking the symptoms of the underlying problem itself.
Chiropractors seek to discover the root cause of a person’s symptoms, and then work to correct that cause. Chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to wellness, evaluating all body systems in terms of the overall function of the body, and how these different systems interact with one another. In particular chiropractic looks closely at the function of the nervous system and the impact the nervous system may be having on the entire body, including but not limited to bodily pain.
In chiropractic, drugs are not used, no surgeries are performed, and the treatment which is adopted will always focus on restoring and maintaining normal body function, beginning with the spine. This should make perfect sense, because the spine protects the entire central nervous system, and many of the surrounding tissues and nerves are heavily influenced by the spine, so that should be the first place you look when something is wrong.
Injuries and chiropractic care for Downtown Seattle
Anytime you experience some kind of trauma such as an auto accident or sports injury, there’s a good chance that it has caused a misalignment to individual vertebrae, or even whole sections of the spine. Ligaments that hold the spine together in proper alignment can be damaged in traumas. When that happens, the spinal cord or nerves can become irritated and you will become more than likely to experience ongoing pain, as well as decreased nervous system function, and various types of degenerative changes. Pain after an injury as well as many of various accompanied health issues can be improved tremendously by addressing the structure of the spine and function of the nerves.
The core of chiropractic care
At the center of chiropractic care is what we call the spine adjustment. Chiropractors go through a doctorate level of training on how to apply manual force to the spine to achieve re-realignment of the individual bones or the regions of the spine. These adjustments might be made by hand or with the assistance of instrumentation, but in all cases they will be gentle forces which cause no discomfort to the patient.
A great deal of research has been conducted into the safety as well as the results achieved by chiropractic care, and in virtually every research study, chiropractic care has been found to be very effective at achieving positive results, both in the short term and the long term.
The reason corrective chiropractic care is so effective is that it goes right to the root of the problem, and fixes whatever misalignment has occurred. No medication can help to achieve the long-lasting results that chiropractic care can, because medication does not fix the problem at all, it merely covers up the symptoms. Chiropractic care at Lake Union Wellness actually corrects the problem, so that all the pain-killers and medications become unnecessary.
