Chiropractors focus their therapy on the central and most essential part of the body, the spinal cord. The spine protects the spinal cord, if there is an injury to the spine it can affect the spinal cord creating pain. A chiropractor will address the root of the problem, and may also relieve pain in other areas like the shoulder.
A chiropractor can treat and restore range of motion in your shoulder. chiropractors are leaders in natural health alternatives, and many people who have injuries visit a chiropractor for relief.
What Exactly Does a Chiropractor Do?
When you experience pain, it is most effective to first go to the source to relieve the pain. A chiropractor addresses the injury by releasing the constriction of the nerve, tendon, or muscle that is creating the pain. This is an “adjustment,” and this is what the chiropractor refers to when he makes these minor adaptations. The “adjustment” is a slight movement to put the body back into proper alignment. It may take three to five adjustments over a week or two to complete the entire treatment. Each “adjustment” reduces the amount of pressure that is contributing to the pain.
The human body heals itself when it is in proper alignment. A misalignment causes tightness, restriction of movement, and other pain. When the body is in proper alignment and the abnormal pressure is relieved, healing is possible and muscles, joints, and tendons will return back into place.
If bones have been broken or there are lacerations in the skin that require stitches, traditional medical treatment is necessary. Take these injuries directly to the Emergency Room. When you feel pain affecting your muscles, tendons, bones or joints visit a chiropractor who will release the pain with chiropractic adjustments.
Before you know it, you are free from the pain with no surgery or medications.
