How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Ease Pain?

According to a Gallup survey conducted by Palmer College of Chiropractic, 62% of adults in the United States have had neck or back pain significant enough that they sought treatment from a healthcare professional. Of this number, 47% saw a medical doctor while 53% sought treatment from a chiropractor.

These numbers point to the fact that more and more people are open to alternative treatments to alleviate their pain. And when you consider that tens of millions of people currently seek chiropractic care, you recognize that they find great value in this safe and drugless approach to pain management.

There is now overwhelming research to suggest that chiropractic works well for many conditions, including:

  • Low back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Reduce colic symptoms
  • Acid reflux
  • Ear infections in children
  • Neurological conditions
  • Prevent back surgery
  • Improve athletic performance

What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?

Most of the benefits associated with chiropractic care are due to patients receiving specific chiropractic adjustments. These adjustment work by easing your mechanical body (spine, soft tissues) into proper position, which in turn allows your body to heal itself.

Your nervous system controls every aspect of your health. This is why chiropractic focuses on making sure the spine is properly aligned. Research now indicates that spinal adjustments can change various aspects of nervous system function including muscle reflexes, reaction time, and the speed at which your brain processes information.

In a nutshell, movement feeds information to your brain about what is going in in your body. So when you get an adjustment, specific tissues around the spine are stimulated and your brain gets new information from which to make the right decision about how best to respond to an illness or pain. That’s right, chiropractic care restores spinal function, which then actually changes the way the brain functions.

And finally, and perhaps the best part is, that chiropractic care is one of the safest approaches to natural and holistic healing of many conditions. And, it is a great complimentary medical approach to traditional medicine as well.
