Chiropractic and osteopathic manipulations can be especially helpful in relieving pain for facet joint injuries, osteoarthritis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, as these conditions represent joint dysfunction that responds well to mobilization. Whenever there is a disruption in the normal movement or position of the vertebrae, the result is pain and inflammation. With more than 5 years in practice, we are well-qualified to provide you with the chiropractic care you need. Chiropractic care is dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of many health issues connected to the nervous system. A lack of EXERCISE or a sudden increase in exercise can also increase your chances of experiencing low back pain. The treatment plan, other than the manual manipulation of the muscles and joints, may also involve exercise, rehabilitation, and nutritional counseling for improving efficacy.
Problems usually stem when there is interference with these abilities (our reflexes and physiology). A subluxation is a condition that occurs when the vertebrae put pressure on the spinal cord, causing signals from the brain to misfire. Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we see ourselves as mere servants. Osteopathic doctors believe that the body is a unified whole and that mobilization of many of its components (especially the musculoskeletal system) fosters natural processes of self-regulation and self-healing. In the lumbar spine, these usually occur at the transition between the lower spine and the sacrum. Chiropractic care is beneficial for both short-term and long-term sufferers and can provide immediate and lasting relief.
