There are many reasons to see a Doctor of Chiropractic, who is sometimes referred to as a DC in the same way that a general practitioner is referred to as an MD.
Chronic low back pain is a common reason for seeing a chiropractor, but so is restoring full range of motion to an affected area to optimize movement and avoid
potential injuries to the area. We recommend that all back pain go through a chiropractor first; it reduces the chances of potential surgery and, because it’s
all-natural, there are no drugs involved that could lead to addiction. Some people see a chiropractor to help mitigate certain types of headaches. Because the
central nervous system is facilitated by the spinal cord, which is encased by the spine, adjustments along the spine are crucial to maintaining the health of
your nervous system. Chiropractic care is not limited to the spine, although subluxations (a fancy technical word for restrictions of the vertebrae in the spine)
can affect the body’s health in areas far away, such as tingling felt in the feet or fingers. Chiropractors aren’t limited to making adjustments on the back;
they make adjustments on the ankles/feet, wrists/hands, neck, shoulders, elbows, knees, and ribs. Chiropractic care is potentially a cradle to grave health regimen,
from newborns (who are obviously adjusted differently following their traumatic journey through the birth canal) to seniors (who are also adjusted differently
after a lifetime of wear and tear).
