Many of us visit our chiropractors on a daily basis to seek help with issues ranging from back pain to headaches. Most chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines are a result of misalignments in the spine whether it’s one vertebrae out of space or an entire region of the spine has shifted. Therefore, simple adjustments may not necessarily address the misalignments that cause the problem in the first place and this is when corrective chiropractic care comes to place. Corrective chiropractic looks at the whole body, identifies all sources of structural problems to be corrected and is next level chiropractic.
What is corrective chiropractic care and how does it differ from the traditional style of chiropractic care?
Corrective chiropractic aims to address the underlying structural and alignment problems that lead to pain and injury. Chiropractors then diagnose the problem, address it with a comprehensive approach including adjustments, braces, posture correctors, mirror exercises and mobilizations and specific stretching. With this level of care, muscle weakness and spine misalignment can be improved permanently therefore helping patients escape from the pattern of treatment and re-injury. With proper alignment and muscle strength, the body is freed to return to its natural state of health and comfort.
What to expect in corrective chiropractic appointment?
X-rays are the gold standard for diagnosing structural issues and spinal misalignments. Observing posture and conducting hands-on physical examinations does not deliver the same accuracy and therefore appropriate X-rays examination will be conducted.
Once the chiropractor has identified the problems and discussed the goals for treatment, he/she will work up an individualized plan such as the course of treatment and break down the steps needed to get there. They will also recommend ways you can support that work at home such as exercise, stretches, diet changes and modifications in daily activities.
With proper alignment, you will find relief from pain that may have been there for years. Furthermore, your nervous system will be able to work at its top efficiency which improves and supports the function of other parts of the body such as better digestion, better sleep and more energy.
Corrective chiropractic helps restoration of the spine’s natural alignment and therefore you can experience more benefits than you can even imagine since you are truly managing your health holistically. Some benefits include:
When you experience a health dysfunction, traditional care may be a great temporary fix that gives quick relief of pain and other symptoms. However, these symptoms will keep coming back and never truly go away until the real cause is addressed. This is exactly what corrective chiropractic care is founded upon. When the focus is on restoring the overall alignment of the spine, you can expect a real and sustainable recovery. That way symptoms of pain, discomfort, and fatigue can be addressed for the long term. Overall, this means no more frustrating yo-yoing between symptoms.
