Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Those that have been dealing with chronic pain or have been injured are not the only individuals who should seek chiropractic care in Sycamore. The benefits of chiropractic care can be realized for many people with any variety of health conditions. Even those relatively “healthy” individuals with few, if any, health conditions can see the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care. The impact of life’s daily grind adds up stressing the human body in far greater ways than you might realize. Regular chiropractic adjustments can restore and maintain balance within, allowing the innately intelligent human body to heal itself, leaving you better prepared to live life to its fullest.
Regardless of one’s walk in life, anyone can benefit greatly from regular chiropractic care. Routine chiropractic treatments will help maintain the body at the high level of activity life calls for, allowing the body to self-heal through proper alignment. Your spinal column serves as a conduit through which the human brain sends messages through and out to the body's nervous system. It is simple to see how protecting the integrity of this important structure, through regular visits to Allergies, Aches & Pains Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, Ltd. is vital to the body’s optimal function and overall health.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
With all the toxins present in our various environments, it is important that our bodies are well suited to interact and deal with each challenge that we face. While traditional and western explanations of acupuncture vary, each fundamentally deals with acclimating our body to our surroundings. After thousands of years of research, various points across the body have been located that have a significant impact on our bodies overall physiology. Typically, depending on the desired end result, fine needles are meticulously positioned at these points to stimulate various aspects of our hormonal, immune, and endocrine systems. Once these systems have been stimulated, a number of neurotransmitters, natural pain killers, and hormones are released. Patients at our Allergies, Aches & Pains Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, Ltd. have described the following effects following acupuncture treatments:
- Decreases in muscles spasms and pain
- Decrease in swelling at various points across the body
- A general decrease in pain
- A decrease in illnesses due to stimulation of the immune system
- Lower levels of back and neck pain
What is Chiropractic in General?
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A doctor of chiropractic will diagnose, treat and prevent injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles and bones. While a chiropractor will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective of the chiropractor is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs. As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Allergies, Aches & Pains Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, Ltd. receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created. Should a patient require treatment outside the scope of chiropractic care they are referred to the appropriate medical specialist in our area. As the science of chiropractic has evolved so have the techniques used within its practice. Common treatment methods have grown to include nutritional counseling, orthotics, lifestyle modification / exercise programs and physical rehabilitation programs. While these adjunctive treatments are certainly beneficial, spinal and joint manipulation remains the primary and most effective mode of treatment by our clinic. Statistics reflect that nearly 95% of patients that seek chiropractic care in Sycamore do so as a result of musculoskeletal pain.
