Let me guess, you’re eager to experience natural pain relief and get off the roller coaster of meds. Am I right? Maybe your chronic pain hasn’t responded to prescription medication or even cannabis pain relief and you want to try a new approach.
Chiropractic care may be the right fit for you. Recognized by millions of happy patients and venerable institutions like Harvard Health, regular chiropractic treatments can relieve your pain.
And it does it naturally.
Chronic pain like sciatica, carpal tunnel or even headaches are caused by inflammation which is your body’s healing process. Basically, when you have a pain, it’s your body sending you a message that there’s a problem.
Of course, your body also takes action to heal the pain.
Think back to the last time you had a paper cut. You know how it’s red and throbs around the cut? That’s your body’s white blood cells rushing in like the fire squad to save the day. Like the fireman will release the water hose on a burning building, your body releases chemicals to kill any potential infection.That works great in case of broken bones and yes, even paper cuts. You don’t want to get a nasty parasite.
The problem comes when your body keeps dousing these chemicals on a troubled area. You’ll want to take steps to eliminate the cause of your chronic pain because the pain itself is a symptom of a deeper issue.
How Chiropractic Care Provides Natural Pain Relief
Chiropractic treatment has the goal of eliminating the causes of chronic pain because it’s your chiropractor’s job to keep your body in alignment. When your body is alignment, you’re not putting undue pressure on certain muscles or nerves.
Yet, your habits – posture, sitting, and even sleeping – can work against you and keep you in pain. Think about how many hours a day you spend hunched over a computer – that creates a huge amount of tension in your neck and shoulders.
No wonder you feel tense!
When your chiropractor adjusts your spine, he or she is putting quick pressure on specific vertebrae to help them return to their rightful place. That means the adjustment takes pressure off your nerves so they aren’t screaming in pain.
Also called “spinal manipulation”, your chiropractor is careful to only adjust one spinal joint at a time while keeping the others still.
Whether you’re suffering from headaches, low back pain or other problems, regular chiropractic care can be the key to natural pain relief. Dr. Jeff McQuaite in Doylestown treats children and adults. Have you seen his new patient special?
