Looking for a natural way to relieve pain and feel better? Dr. Joshua Edwards and the team at Impact ChiroSport in Allen, TX, aim to help every patient live better and perform better through customized chiropractic care.
What’s the Deal With Chiropractic Care?
Though chiropractic care is nothing new, it has been getting more and more attention over the last several years. Many people have experienced the incredible advantages it offers and have recommended it to family and friends.
However, there are still many people who haven’t yet made that move, often due to uncertainty about the field. Dr. Edwards and our team at Impact ChiroSport in Allen, TX, aim to clear up that uncertainty by explaining chiropractic care in the guide below.
Understanding the Basics of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors are licensed healthcare providers who focus on enabling the body to naturally heal itself. In an age where medication and surgical intervention seem to be the go-to, natural healing can seem strange or impossible. We assure you that it’s not.
The human body is an incredible machine with many interworking systems. These systems all carry out very important functions that help the body operate and heal.
For example, when you have a cut, blood rushes to the area to fill the gap and protect you from infection. New skin forms to close the wound. This occurs naturally when the healing process is triggered.
The above is just one example, but there are many different healing processes that occur to repair cells, send blood and oxygen, and more. However, there are times when a restriction in the body prevents some of these processes from being able to take place. Chiropractic care focuses on removing those restrictions naturally.
How Do Chiropractors Remove Restrictions?
Chiropractors use completely natural methods. While this is not a comprehensive list, some examples include:
- Adjustments that restore alignment, improve blood flow, and restore range of motion
- Electric stimulation which helps ease muscle contractions and pull blood and healing nutrients to the site
- Compression therapy to improve blood flow to a damaged area
- Massage and other manual therapies to address tension, trigger points, tight fascia, and more
Techniques such as these help with issues such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Disc compression and disorders
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Piriformis syndrome
- Headaches and more
