Challenges are a part of life, but overcoming them can be incredibly rewarding. One of the biggest obstacles millions of people face every day is finding effective solutions for relieving and healing their pain. Whether it is pain caused by injury, stress, age, degeneration, or a health condition, pain can dictate your day-to-day life, limiting your abilities to live your life to its fullest.

While there is certainly no shortage of pain management treatments, pharmaceuticals, and supplements that can simply mask your pain and provide temporary relief, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists are constantly looking for innovative ways to target and treat pain by addressing the root cause of the pain, rather than simply managing discomfort.

Why Chiropractic?

Many of the current pain management techniques used by Western medicine only treat the symptoms of a problem, not the cause. Chiropractic medicine works to treat the source of the issue. Because of this, chiropractic is recognized as one of the most effective treatments for managing existing pain complaints and other symptoms, while also preventing future issues from presenting themselves.

Furthermore, chiropractic is noninvasive (i.e. there is no surgery and no prescription drugs), so there are fewer risks related to the procedures performed. Chiropractic care uses your body’s own natural healing powers to manage pain and other problems. The spine houses the spinal cord, which can directly affect many of the body’s other systems. After gently adjusting the spine, many patients report a reduction in pain and an increase in general wellness, function, and mobility.

Today’s Chiropractic

You probably already know that chiropractic is commonly used for neck and back pain relief. But did you know that chiropractic can be used to treat any number of ailments from allergies to osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia to migraines? Here are just some of the conditions we treat with gentle chiropractic care.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sciatica

Many advances have been made in the world of chiropractic while still staying true to the roots of this practice. By taking an active role in their healing, patients can eliminate many issues of pain and other ailments. Taking an active role means not only consulting a licensed chiropractor, but also having a healthy diet, exercising, and practicing self-care techniques to not only improve, but also maintain optimal wellness.

Why Chiropractic Adjustments are a Preferred Method of Care

In many modern medical practices, drugs are administered to treat everything from pain to illness. Use of prescription drugs often delivers undesirable or dangerous side effects. These drugs can also be hard on the liver and kidneys if used long-term. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, can eliminate the need for these drugs by treating the source of an issue.

History Of Chiropractic

Evidence of healers and physicians performing manual manipulation of the spine can be found in ancient Greek and Chinese history. These manual manipulations were believed to cure many ailments, not just those related to the spine. It was not until 1895 that D.D. Palmer performed a spinal adjustment on a partially deaf man named Harvey Lillard. This seemed to improve his hearing. Palmer believed that spinal adjustments could cure any number of pains and ailments, since the spine has the ability to press on many different nerves, affecting the functions of every system of the human body.

Several years later, Palmer opened the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, which still educates doctors of chiropractic medicine today. Over time, the fundamental ideas behind chiropractic have not changed much, but great strides have been made as more and more people have experienced the health benefits of chiropractic.
