Musculoskeletal Disorders ,,, Say What?

By Genevieve Cunningham

You have most likely heard of a chiropractor. This alternative care doctor is fairly popular in our world today. But have you heard why we need these particular professionals in our lives? Disorders of the musculoskeletal system … say that three times fast! This mouthful of words encompasses quite a range of ailments and symptoms. If you were to ask a chiropractor what they treat, this is the answer you might get in return. But what exactly does this mean? Wouldn’t we know if we had something of this nature? Take a quick look at exactly what is involved in disorders of this kind, and what a chiropractor can do to help you stay healthy.

What is the Musculoskeletal System?

It might sound rather complicated, but it’s not as bad as it seems. The musculoskeletal system is the system in your body that includes the muscles, bones, and joints. So a disorder of this system generally affects one of these three areas, and sometimes all three at once. Some common disorders include arthritis, tendonitis, and fibromyalgia, though the list of disorders is actually quite long and extensive.

Who is at Risk for These Disorders?

Anyone can develop these disorders. They happen to people of all sizes, ages, and physical conditions. However, the risk for developing any of these disorders rises significantly with age. So the older you are, the more likely you are to suffer from one or more. This may be due to the general wear and tear of the body, and the general breakdown that happens with both time and life.

How Can Chiropractors Help?

Chiropractors treat subluxations, which are misalignments of the vertebrae of the spine. Whether or not the subluxations caused the condition, it is believed that these misalignments can make the symptoms worse. As chiropractors properly align the spine, it reduces pressure and tension, alleviates pain, and reduces many of the symptoms associated with these disorders. Is it a cure? That depends heavily on the particular ailment from which you suffer. Will it help? Research and the experiences of thousands suggest that it most certainly will.
