Pain Relief

Chiropractic care is one of the most effective and safest forms of health care to treat pain due to spinal related conditions.
Chiropractic is so effective because most causes of spinal disorders are related to abnormalities of the spine and the
surrounding soft tissue structures. Doctors of chiropractic are specifically trained to identify and treat subluxations
(misalignments of the vertebrae) and their subsequent effect on the central nervous system. Anti-inflammatory medication
and pain relievers merely mask the symptoms and have undesirable side effects.

Increased Range of Motion of the Spine and Extremities

Chiropractic care has been shown repeatedly to increase not only the range of motion of the spine. Increasing a person’s
range of motion can positively and drastically affect lives in many ways. For some, an increased range of motion means
being able to bend down to pick up their grandchildren. For others, it means they can garden without pain or get an extra 40
yards of distance out of their driver on the golf course. In many cases, an increase in range of motion immediately follows
chiropractic adjustments. This is one of the reasons why many top professional sporting teams have team chiropractors.

Increased Balance and Coordination

Many problems in balance and coordination in the aging population have been shown to come from injury or degenerative
changes to the cervical spine (neck region).  With a decrease in sense of body awareness, patients lose balance and
coordination and risk falling.  Studies have shown that chiropractic care can help restore balance and coordination.

Decreased Joint Degeneration

A subluxated (misaligned) spine is much like a misaligned wheel on an automobile. This misalignment will cause the spine
(and the wheel) to wear out prematurely. Since all moving parts will eventually wear down over time, it is very important to get
your spine aligned periodically. Chiropractic care decreases spinal degeneration and other arthritic changes by normalizing
the spinal alignment and reducing spinal stress.

Increased Health and Well-Being

We commonly ask our patients what changes they notice once they are put of pain. Here are some regular responses we
hear every day: I feel great!  I can sleep through the night!  Now I can play in the garden!  I have so much energy!  Life is worth
living now!

Yes, chiropractic is far more than mere pain relief.

Feeling good, staying healthy and doing the things that make us happy are what keeps us looking forward to each new day.
Regular chiropractic care increase the quality of life and increase health and well being.

Decreased Incidence of Falling

Injuries due to falling are extremely common in the elderly population. According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), falls are responsible for 90% of the 850,000 bone fractures which occur annually among Americans past
the age of 65. Chiropractors reduce the risk of falls by normalizing the mechanoreceptors of the cervical (neck) spine by
administering chiropractic adjustments. They also prescribe stretching and exercise programs to increase strength, flexibility,
mobility, balance and coordination.

Keeps Seniors Out of Nursing Homes

In a 1996 study published in the Journal, “Topics of Clinical Chiropractic” called “Chiropractic care for the Elderly.”
researchers found

  • 44% of those who used chiropractic care reported having arthritis compared with 66% in the non-chiropractic care
  • those who used chiropractic care were more likely to do strenuous levels of exercise
  • at three years follow-up, less than 5% of those who used chiropractic care lived in a nursing home while a staggering
    48% of those who did not use chiropractic care did live in a nursing home
  • at three years follow-up, only 26% of those who used chiropractic care were hospitalized compared with 48% of those
    in the non-chiropractic group

Chiropractic provides amazing benefits and has an outstanding record of safety and effectiveness.
