Chiropractic care main focal point is the disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects it has on general health. The neuromusculoskeletal system is the combination of the musculoskeletal and nervous system which work together giving humans the ability to physically move.
Is Chiropractic Adjustment Necessary?
According to a doctor of chiropractic, Andrew Haig, when the spine or other joints become unaligned or function is impaired, the nerve fibers in the spine are pinched, creating pain, discomfort and or other health issues. These nerve fibers in your spine are 75% function related and 25% pain related and become affected. Subluxation can occur with any kind of trauma to the joint or tissue, from bad posture to lifting heavy objects. Although people may take pain relievers to handle the discomfort, it will not get down to the core of the problem. Chiropractic adjustments are necessary to relieve the pressure from the nervous system. It is also necessary for the joints to receive nutrients. With adjustments, injured joints are able to move more freely. The joint movement helps bring nutrients to the joint and flushes away toxins.
Adjustment Procedure Basics
In the adjustment process, a chiropractor uses his or her skills to apply force to the unaligned or “subluxated” vertebrates and or joints, skillfully realigning and relieving the pressure from them. The chiropractor can adjust just about any joint in the body. These adjustments can occur in the spine, jaw, pelvis, hips, knees, feet, elbows, hands, wrists, shoulders, and the ribs. Some chiropractors train to adjust the joints of the skull. Adjustments are most commonly performed by use of hands or an adjusting instrument called an Activator.
Chiropractic adjustments keep joints and vertebrates from degenerating at an early stage, prolonging and restoring the functions. This technique should only be performed by a chiropractic doctor.
If you are experiencing discomfort or pain in your body you should contact a chiropractor immediately to prevent any prolonged damages. He or she is the only one who can determine whether you are a good candidate for adjustments.
