Injuries or illnesses are an inevitable part of living. The causes can include sports injuries, on-the-job injuries, automobile accidents, migraine headaches, and arthritis, to name a few. It’s not whether you’ll experience a physical setback in life, but when. How pain enters your life may be beyond your control, but you do have choices in how to deal with it.
The doctors at ChiroFit offer manual adjustments and physical therapy to improve your acute discomfort and provide long-term solutions.
Chiropractic is recognized as one of the safest types of health care in the world. Numerous studies, including those funded by governments, universities, and nonprofit research institutions, have proven it to be a successful primary therapy for neuromusculoskeletal conditions — a therapy that is safer, in fact, than most medical procedures used to treat the same conditions. Chiropractic is also widely used as a complementary mode of care for a variety of other conditions and diseases and to promote overall health and well-being.
Your body is designed to be a self-healing and self-regulating being. When ill health, pain, or disease set in, that’s a sign that something is interfering with your body’s ability to heal and regulate itself. Chiropractors are the only health professionals that are uniquely trained to locate and remove these interferences, thus allowing the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic care doesn’t damage your joints, and most adjustments are painless. The adjustment can provide relief of your painful symptoms and restore range of motion immediately in many cases.
While you may be alarmed by the “pop” that an adjustment can produce, the sound is not coming from the bones themselves. It’s coming from a lubricant called synovial fluid that’s found in every joint. That fluid contains dissolved gases. Separating joints creates a change in pressure, which forces the gases to rapidly escape, creating the “pop.”
