Common Chiropractic Questions
By Sara Butler
If you’re new to chiropractic, you may have a lot of questions about how chiropractic works to help you. But even if you’re not new to chiropractic, there’s always more to learn about your favorite health care practice. Here are a few of the most popular questions chiropractors at The Joint field on a daily basis! Let’s get educated!
What is Wellness?
Wellness has become a bit of a catchphrase lately because it can mean different things to different people. When your chiropractor talks to you about wellness, what they’re to communicate is a state of being in which your body is free of interference or interruption to any part of your central nervous system. This helps your body to work as it should and contributes to better health and enjoyment of life for you. Pretty simple, really!
Do Chiropractors Only Treat Conditions Related to the Spine?
This is a very common question, but it's still a good question to ask! Your nervous system helps to determine how you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. When your nervous system isn’t functioning at its best due to joint restriction or dysfunction, then it has to work even harder in order to compensate for it.
When your central nervous system is working overtime just to keep things going on a basic level, then you can develop symptoms that impact more than just your spine. You can experience:
- Muscle aches
Of course, these symptoms are just a few of the possible symptoms of an overworked central nervous system, but one thing for sure is that any symptom you experience will just become worse over time if left unaddressed. The solution is simple: chiropractic care!
Chiropractors are more than just someone who knows a lot about the spine; they know a lot about the central nervous system too.
Is a Chiropractor a Wellness Expert Too?
You could say that your chiropractor is an expert in wellness! After all, they uncover problems that are interfering with the function of your central nervous system and work to repair them, helping your nervous system to function at its best and do what it was meant to do – heal itself. So, yes – in addition to relieving back and neck pain, your chiropractor is a specialist in your wellness!
