Chiropractic treatments aid in both musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders that affect muscles, bones, and joints of the body. Chiropractors use non-surgical, hands-on spinal manipulation, to restore mobility of joints that were restricted by traumatic injuries such as motor vehicle accidents or years of repetitive stress. These manipulations or adjustments alleviate pain and muscle tightness in affected areas and allow tissues to heal. Chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
Chiropractic care is considered a safe and efficient treatment option for acute and chronic pain conditions and can most often be used in conjunction to conventional medical treatment.
