People often seek chiropractic care for back pain. About 35% of Americans who visit chiropractors annually seek relief from back pain. However, chiropractors also treat patients suffering from neck pain, headaches, injuries, muscle strains, arthritis and more. Recent studies reveal that chiropractic care may be more effective than medication in relieving neck pain. Chiropractic care also focuses on on-going preventive and wellness care. It promotes overall health and wellness by reducing the stress and irritation of the spinal nerve roots.
Chiropractic care can help reduce pain, improve joint range of motion, and even enhance your quality of life. Chiropractors seek to develop treatment plans for their patients that will optimize their overall health. Instead of resulting to medication for a “quick-fix,” chiropractic care focuses on relieving your pain and developing a plan to prevent similar injuries from occurring. In “Dynamic Chiropractic,” Dr. Charles Masarsky explains that chiropractic care may also have long-term health benefits. He identifies these long-term benefits as, “Retention of lung capacity, improved visual acuity, reaction time and balance, and enhanced cardiovascular health.” Chiropractic care provides both short-term and long-term health benefits.
