Most often, our office delivers treatment for pain related to the spine. However coming in a close second is treatment to all other joints in the body. Chiropractic care has the unique advantage to helping your body reach its peak through entirely natural methods. If you are suffering from debilitating joint pain, maybe it’s time to consider a natural healthcare option. Instead of relying on prescription or over the counter medicines or simply accepting it. For many sufferers of joint pain, musculoskeletal problems and poor mechanical ranges of motion are to blame.
Many people fall into bad “motion” habits following an injury. The part of our body that’s injured can become inflamed and painful to use. Inflemation is frequently the body’s natural reaction as the cells regenerate and heal. However, in the ages past, taking it easy did not mean permanently avoiding work. Our ancestors who lived by hunting and gathering had to walk around and rebuild their strength. So, if we don't strive to regain our mobility while “taking it easy” on these injured joints, they can get stuck in this permanent state of atrophy and develop an endless cycle of pain.
Regaining our mobility is possible through a specialized form of physical therapy known as chiropractic care. Chiropractors are doctors who study body mechanics and learn methods to adjust the body back into its own state of homeostasis. This natural healthcare modality has the benefit of helping patients re-learn how to walk, sit, and correct our deviated motions. By reclaiming more natural movements that our bodies are meant to support, injuries are more readily avoided and recovered from. The study of chiropractic care is not limited to spinal alignment, however. Chiropractic care also extends to joint pain in shoulders, elbows, knees, and even the extremities.
It is a wonderful feeling for a chiropractor to free someone from the burdens of their mechanical disorders. Unlike some other forms of pain relief, Chiropractic care does not toxify the liver or create secondary symptoms. We’ve seen many people arrive at our office feeling helpless about their health. Many assume they’ve lost the range of motion they had previously and will no longer be able to walk normally, play with their grandchildren or tend their own gardens. At Rush-Henrietta Family Chiropractic, by using the right forms of therapy, diet, and various exercises, we can help our patients rebuild the strength of muscles that have suffered atrophy from an initial injury.
In this manner, chiropractors address the root issue of a disorder rather than simply treating the collateral symptoms. Most insurance plans now cover chiropractor visits and the manipulations of the spine and joints are so gentle and carefully calculated, it is very hard to suffer an injury at the hands of a skilled chiropractor.
In our taxing world, visiting a chiropractor can be used in conjunction with massage for reducing stress. In fact seeing receiving these two services in tandem can make both of them more effective. Even if you do not suffer from any major joint problems, nearly everyone can benefit from spinal adjustments and corrected posture.
