A new paper that has come out that reviewed back pain studies over a period of five years. In case you don’t feel like reading I will give you the low down. They determined that chiropractors are well suited for diagnosing and treating low back pain. I know huge surprise, right? The reason the article is interesting is because every time chiropractic care has a new review or study it creates more validity.
Chiropractic care has been around for over 100 years yet there are still a lot of misnomers about what we actually do to help patients. With specific adjustments to the spine we are able to decrease pressure on the nerve roots and not only decrease pain but also restore normal nerve function.
Think of it like an electrical connection. If you have a wire that is going bad you may have a light that flickers in your kitchen. The same is true in your body, of course it gets a lot more complex! If you have compression on a nerve root exiting your spine you may have pain, numbness, tingling, atrophy or even decreased organ function.
Regular chiropractic adjustments, and by regular I mean even just once a month, can maintain and healthy body and help prevent you from getting sick, improve your performance with workouts/sports/exercise, prevent arthritis, decrease pain, improve your energy level….and the list can go on.
Give you spine some love and come see me!
