IS CHIROPRACTIC RIGHT FOR YOU?
Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
If you have been dealing with chronic pain or have been injured you should consider seeking chiropractic care. The benefits of chiropractic treatment can be realized for many people with any variety of health conditions. Even those relatively “healthy” individuals with few, if any, health conditions can see the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care. The impact of life’s daily grind adds up, stressing the human body in far greater ways than you might realize. Regular chiropractic adjustments at UltraHealth Chiropractic can help to restore and maintain balance within, allowing the innately intelligent human body to heal itself.
Regardless of one’s walk in life, anyone can benefit from regular chiropractic care. Routine chiropractic treatments will help maintain the body at the high level of activity life calls for, allowing the body to self-heal through proper alignment. Your spinal column serves as a conduit through which the human brain sends messages throughout the body’s nervous system. It is simple to see how protecting the integrity of this important structure, through regular visits to UltraHealth Chiropractic is vital to the body’s optimal function and overall health.
Chiropractic Success – Scientifically Explained
If you are looking for a scientific explanation of how we achieve the results we do, this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
That’s a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients report improvement in organic function, not only musculoskeletal benefits. To reiterate, this is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat systemic pathology, but does suggest that some who have systemic symptoms may see results from chiropractic care even without the presence of pain.
The Education of a Lancaster Chiropractor
Most patients don’t realize how much schooling chiropractors have to go through before they can start practicing. Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational requirements of any health profession. In fact their schooling requirements are very comparable to that of medical practitioners. After completing a heavy emphasis of basic sciences in an undergraduate program, potential chiropractors may be accepted into a four year chiropractic college.
As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at UltraHealth Chiropractic receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created. Should a patient require treatment outside the scope of chiropractic care, they are referred to the appropriate health specialist.
