What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a field of medicine that focuses on physical manipulation of the spine and other body parts to affect positive change and healing. The centerpiece of chiropractic care is spinal adjustments and manipulations that focus on alignment. However, chiropractic services in Austin have also expanded to include physical therapy, counseling, and other forms of care. Chiropractic care seeks to avoid prescription medications and surgeries in favor of a more natural healing approach.
What Conditions Does Chiropractic Care Treat?
There are a number of conditions that chiropractic care can treat. Some of the conditions and injuries that chiropractors can treat include:
Auto Accident Injuries: An auto accident can happen at any time, leading to whiplash (neck pain), compression fractures, and more. Spinal manipulation and other forms of chiropractic care can be used to treat these injuries.
Work Injuries: While nobody goes to work expecting to get hurt, injuries can and do happen. This may include low back pain, which can be a sign of a muscular injury or a herniated disc.
Sports Injuries: Of course, sports injuries can occur. When someone suffers a sports injury, the goal is to get someone back to the field as safely and quickly as possible. A chiropractor can help with this.
Headaches: Chiropractors can even treat headaches. Spinal manipulations are an effective treatment option for both tension headaches and migraines.
What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
There are a number of benefits to chiropractic care. Chiropractic care, including ART, targets the root cause of the injury. This not only treats the symptoms, but also targets the root cause, preventing the symptoms from coming back. Chiropractic care also causes few, if any, complications or side effects. This leads to a higher quality of life overall. Treatments such as spinal manipulation and active release technique (ART) can help people break up scar tissue without having to visit the operating room.
