Chiropractic care has proven its effectiveness in treating headaches, neck pain, and back pain. Chiropractors also care for patients who have musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affecting joints, muscles, and nerves. These painful conditions affect the nervous system and cause intense pain.

Chiropractors specialize in relieving pain and treating symptoms of MSDs such as pain and numbness in the hands and wrists from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and back pain from herniated discs.

DCs also provide patients essential information on exercise, healthy habits, nutrition, diet, lifestyle, and functional changes for improved health and well-being.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care 

Chiropractic is widely recognized as a safe, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.

Many patients experience immediate pain relief after chiropractic treatment. Here are other benefits of chiropractic care:

  • Improved circulation of nutrients, oxygen, and blood in the body
  • Increased mobility and flexibility
  • Reduced inflammation in the body
  • Faster healing of tissues and muscles
  • Improved nervous system function and sharper mental acuity

Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

While not all health treatments are free from adverse effects, chiropractic care has low risks. Some patients may experience ache, stiffness, or mild soreness that fades after 24 hours.

DCs perform diagnoses and tests before performing chiropractic treatments. They will check your medical history, present medical condition, medications, and surgical history.

They may also require you to undergo X-Ray and MRI tests to check whether chiropractic treatments are a viable option.

Chiropractic treatments are unsafe for individuals with the following conditions:

  • Nervous system infections
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and inflamed joints
  • Circulation problems
  • Brittle or broken bones
  • Bone infections and diseases
