Chiropractic or osteopathic manipulations can be especially helpful in relieving pain for facet joint injuries, osteoarthritis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, because such conditions respond well to mobilization.
Increasingly over the past few decades, the medical community has come to accept and recognize chiropractic care as a valid form of treatment for a variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, and as a conservative treatment option for patients with lower back pain. Many medical doctors recognize a chiropractic diagnosis and accept it as the first line of treatment for functional disorders of the entire musculoskeletal system.
Patients of all ages have reported significant relief after chiropractic therapy from issues such as:
- joint pain and discomfort
- chronic headaches
- sinus problems
- high blood pressure
- ear infections
- and many other illnesses
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?
Alleviate Your Pain
The trained chiropractors at Total Health of Wesley Chapel understand how the various systems in your body relate to one another, which allows your chiropractor to determine where your back pain, headache, or joint soreness is coming from.
Our Chiropractors usually deal with the underlying causes of pain so that patients can experience long-term relief. Typically, these types of pain are related to some type of joint displacement or misalignment that restricts the functioning of both the joint and associated muscles. Our chiropractors can adjust the restriction and make sure your spine is aligned correctly in order to alleviate pain and help you to function better daily.
Do you have trouble sleeping? The body does most of its self-healing and repair while you sleep, and many chiropractic patients report that they experience severe pain overnight that makes it difficult for them to get a full night’s rest. Other patients have great anxiety that leads to sleeplessness, increased brain activity, and a heightened heart rate. Chiropractic care can address your pain and anxiety by treating the cause of the symptoms that may be keeping you from sleeping well throughout the night.
Improve Your Mobility
Chronic pain makes it difficult to be active. Thus, many patients suffering from decreased mobility seek chiropractic care. This allows an inactive lifestyle to increase further pain and a lower range of motion.
Chiropractic care from Total Health of Wesley Chapel can make it easier for you to exercise once again. Many chiropractic patients find themselves able to begin regular exercise regimens after receiving adjustments and following through with their treatment plans. Chiropractic care also indirectly offers mental and emotional benefits, as some patients who were discouraged by their pain feel rejuvenated and motivated once their symptoms start to lessen.
Take Fewer or No Medications
Though drugs, surgeries, and invasive treatments are highly common in today’s medical environment, many patients still prefer natural methods of treatment. Because chiropractic adjustments can reduce pain, patients often find that they no longer need the medications they have become accustomed to taking. In many cases, pain medications have negative side effects that can also aggravate the conditions causing your pain.
Eliminating these medications from your life may have a positive impact on your entire body. Of course, the chiropractors at Total Health of Wesley Chapel will recommend that you consult with your prescribing medical doctor before you make ANY changes to your prescription use.
Recurring pain is stressful enough—and when you consider the way it affects your entire quality of life, it’s easy to see why it’s so important to find care for yourself that will truly address the source of your symptoms. Chiropractic treatment often alleviates pain and helps many patients return to their typical lifestyles. When you’re able to continue doing the things you enjoy and you have the physical capabilities you need to live an active lifestyle, you’ll most likely be less stressed and happier.
Increased mobility and the ability to enjoy those things with the ones you love is a gratifying goal to have. At Total Health of Wesley Chapel, we help you to become more active and mobile so that you can do just that.
