If you haven’t visited a chiropractor before, you might be missing out.
Millions of people around the world have experienced the incredible Benefits of Chiropractic Care. One of the best things about Chiropractic Care is it’s a drug-free and surgery-free path to healing naturally. The basic principle upon which the entire chiropractic profession is built is that the body has the amazing, innate ability to heal itself and it is the chiropractors job to help the body to do just that.
Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct misalignments of the spine termed “vertebral subluxations “. When chiropractors use this phrase, they refer to mechanical compression and irritation to spinal joints and nerves. Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, chiropractors focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned by giving chiropractic adjustments to the misaligned spinal vertebrae.
Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common causes include:
- A vertebra going out of alignment because of a slip or fall;
- The entire spine misaligning globally due to poor posture
- Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint
- An inflammatory response caused by poor diet, lack of sleep or psychological stress
- Arthritis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs
- Trigger points and tight neck and back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.
Finding a good chiropractor like Dr. Ciarlelli in Waterbury, CT isn’t only vital to correcting the damage caused by years of poor posture or trauma – it’s also important for everyone wanting to take a proactive approach to his or her health care.
Medical research and studies have shown that Chiropractic adjustments can correct and prevent neuromuscular based conditions such as sciatica, low back and neck pain, headaches (tension and migraine), colic and ear infections, neurological conditions, blood pressure, surgery prevention, frozen shoulder, scoliosis, and athletic performance. Studies have even proved, objectively and subjectively, that Chiropractic patients experience overall increased bodily function, which includes bowl regularity and mental clarity. Basically, because it helps place your body in the position where it can heal itself, chiropractic adjustments can free your immune system up to focus on keeping you healthy, which enhances your ability to think, move and perform.
