Benefits of chiropractic care
The benefits of chiropractic care are numerous, and can include the following:
Chiropractic care is excellent at helping you get rid of the pain.
Nobody likes being in pain, especially when it has lasted for a long time. Migraines, arthritis, chest pain, lower back pain, etc. are different sources of pain. Chiropractors in Amarillo can help patients to get relief from pain. Dr. Williams is a chiropractic orthopedist and Fellow of the International Academy of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine. He specializes in chronic pain and neuromusculoskeletal issues that underlie and maintain that pain.
Only 2% of the chiropractic profession goes on to specialize in a certain field like orthopedics, neurology, sports, or rehabilitation.
Chiropractic care attempts to treat the source and not just the symptoms
The use of shots, muscle relaxers, and pain medications may only treat the symptoms of the condition, but chiropractic care helps by going directly after the cause of the pain. When pain is treated at the source, there is a lower risk of developing such symptoms later on.
When you simply pay attention to the symptoms alone, it is akin to taking the battery out of the smoke alarm because you don’t like the noise but the fire is still smoldering. Chiropractic care has much better solutions than that. Chiropractors are specially trained in spinal manipulative therapy as well as in exercise/rehab. That way, movement dysfunction is attended to but so is strengthening, stretching, and shoring up the support structures of the frame.
Chiropractic care does not require taking medication
Some people react adversely to medications and the continuous use of medication for the treatment of stress or pain symptoms may be addictive depending on the type. Chiropractic care does not involve medication because it is a hands-on treatment that involves adjustments and manipulation of the spine combined with exercise/rehab and several other treatment options.
Chiropractic care can be complemented with other treatment methods
Chiropractic care can be combined with other treatment methods to provide healing for patients. As previously mentioned, spinal manipulation may be combined with exercise to help treat patients with lower back pain.
On top of that, chiropractors are skilled in other modalities such as non-surgical spinal decompression, low-level laser, acupuncture, instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation and many more.
Chiropractic is not a treatment. Chiropractic is a profession with many treatment options under its umbrella and these options can be tailored to your specific needs.
