3 Things Chiropractors Want You To Know

By Krista Elliott

If you're like any other adult, you've experienced back pain and/or joint pain at different points throughout your life. Maybe you've had pain due to injuries. Or maybe you've had pain just from the rigors of life, work, or play. 

To treat and prevent joint and back pain, a lot of people visit chiropractors (like the chiropractors right here at The Joint Chiropractic!) But, maybe you've never visited a chiropractor before because you're not sure what to expect and may have more questions than answers. That's understandable! So, to help shed some light on things, here are the top three things that chiropractors want you to know. 

Chiropractic Treatment is Safe

When it comes to health treatments, chiropractic care provides an interesting contrast. It's gentle and natural, but with pinpoint precision. When you visit a chiropractor, your entire frame is carefully assessed, with gentle adjustments targeted solely on the spots that need it. Instead of treating your body in a broad swath, chiropractors pinpoint the exact areas that will benefit from treatment, and use only the exact amount of pressure needed to adjust the joint. No more, no less. And if there are areas that you're not comfortable having the spine manually adjusted, chiropractors can use a small and gentle handheld tool called an activator. As an added bonus, because chiropractic treatment involves no pharmaceuticals, you don't need to worry about side effects or contraindications with any of your other medicines. 

Chiropractic Treatment Isn't Just for Backs

Sure, the main focus of chiropractic practice is on the spine, due to the wide range of effects that your spinal health has on your entire body. But chiropractors are well-versed in treating the entire musculoskeletal system, and if you have pain in your hands, head, feet, hips, jaw, or anywhere else, a chiropractor can assess your pain and the joints in question, and if it's deemed appropriate, can apply treatment. Chronic headaches, cuboid syndrome, TMJ ... these are all conditions that can be effectively treated through chiropractic care. 

Chiropractic Care is Preventative Care

If you're currently suffering from chronic or acute pain, it's definitely worth visiting The Joint to receive chiropractic treatment. But chiropractic experts are determined to not just treat your symptoms, but to restore a healthy balance to your body. By treating subluxations before they turn into major issues, and by working on keeping your body in optimal alignment, the chiropractors at The Joint want to help you feel great and be less prone to injury — every day! 

So what are you waiting for? At The Joint, you don't even need an appointment, so come by and bring your own questions to our chiropractors, and see how they can help you feel great, today and in the long term!
