It’s a common misconception that effective drug-free care for back pain doesn’t exist, which is why so many people never receive the in-depth care that they’re looking for. Fortunately, Chiropractors like Dr. Holt in Salem, OR are looking to change this, as it’s a rapidly growing drug-free form of health care. This natural and comprehensive approach is one that has helped millions with back pain in a way that most didn’t think was possible. How does chiropractic care work? It starts with finding your pain.
How does chiropractic care work? It starts with finding your pain.
Subluxations occur when one or several of the bones in the spine are moved out of their proper position. Whether caused from bad posture, an injury, or something else, this displacement puts a lot of pressure on the nerves in the spine, creating mild to intense pain. Unfortunately, if this isn’t corrected it can wreak havoc within the body, disrupting its ability to send nerve messages as necessary. This can even contribute to “dis-ease”, which is a disruption in your ability to function as normal (i.e. weakness, fatigue, imbalance, etc.). Chiropractors must go through extensive training to locate and correct subluxations, as they realize that your pain will continue unless the cause of it is addressed.
Correcting subluxations isn’t as easy as asking where the pain is or putting pressure on that certain area. Not only can pain travel along the spine, but subluxations can be further irritated by using the wrong adjustment techniques. This is why chiropractors become masters at locating these issues and assessing the exact technique needed to address it in the proper manner. Although a skilled chiropractor like Dr. Holt might make the adjustment look quick and easy, there is a lot of time and education behind every adjustment technique that is used.
Once our patients have experienced a properly executed subluxation based on their individual body, they can feel the benefits in many different ways. When the bones are back in place, the nerves will be free to communicate and send messages for a properly functioning body, and that can result in seeing a lot of positive changes. However, it’s important to keep in mind that healing takes time, and most people don’t feel total relief with just the first adjustment. Many require several adjustments in order to experience complete healing from the initial subluxation.
At Healthy Back Chiropractic, we follow up with our patients for long-term care so we can help them experience the vast improvements of a better functioning body. From less pain and more flexibility to the ability to concentrate and sleep better, the benefits of naturally tuning the body with a chiropractor like Dr. Holt are endless.
