When faced with a neck or back injury that is so painful or severe that surgery has been suggested, you may benefit tremendously from a chiropractic evaluation. An expert chiropractor will be able to not only assess your neck or back pain, but also implement a plan that will put you on the road to recovery.
Chiropractic care approaches the body in its entirety; for every part of your body relates to another and is therefore dependent upon one another. Chiropractic care centers on the totality of your body’s complete functionality, and is dedicated to promote function in the most pain free way possible. This idea separates chiropractic care from other medical practices, in particular surgery. Typically-surgery focuses on a specific region of the body, whereas chiropractic looks at your body as a whole. An expert chiropractor, through an evaluation, will be able to determine and treat the source of your pain. This approach leads to the understanding that the pain or numbness you may be experiencing in your hand may be a result of a pinched nerve in your back. This is a key component in the success of chiropractic care for it treats the SOURCE of the pain, not the symptom. Too often surgery focuses on the symptom of the pain, ignoring the source of the pain. This may provide temporary relief, but when you treat the symptom of the pain, you inevitably leave the door wide open for the return of the pain, which often times happens.
Chiropractic care is also different because it is a natural form of health care. It does not rely on introducing anything foreign to your body. It is also non invasive. This is another key component of chiropractic that distinguishes it from other medical treatments. Chiropractic treatment is both non-invasive and holistic in its approach, but yet it remains to be extremely effective. Introducing foreign materials and substances into your body goes back to treating the symptom not the source of your pain. Medicine is a great way to provide relief, but it often times simply masks the pain. Chiropractic care revolves around uncovering the pain, and treating it directly.
