Chiropractic and Pain Relief
Most people think of Chiropractors as an avenue to rid themselves of pain and any local inflammation; however, they are so much more! Chiropractic works to bring balance to the ever-important nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ, tissue, and cell in the entire human body and it controls the healthy function of all of this. Without it, the body would not be able to function at all, not even a minuscule amount. If there is no interference to the nervous system then it is said for it to control the healthy function of everything. Chiropractors will use specific techniques to correct the areas of misalignment and help the body to increase its functional capabilities. Specific techniques include but are not limited to the following: Diversified technique, Palmer package, full-spine specific, Graston, Activator Methods, SOT, Gonstead, Blair, HIO, Upper Cervical Specific, Thompson, and more. They all have one thing in common; they correct the area of a misaligned segment just in a different fashion. It does not matter how the bone gets corrected as long as it allows for the body’s innate intelligence to come through. Talk with your Chiropractor today about options with your healthcare and to see what specific technique might work best for you. No two individuals are alike so we as Chiropractors should not think that every technique will work on everybody.
