Chiropractic Clinic and Low Back Pain MiamiMore and more patients, insurance companies, and doctors are accepting chiropractic as a viable alternative to medication and surgery. By applying a specific force to an affected joint, chiropractic adjustments (or manipulations) help to free up any joint restrictions, inflammation, or bulging discs. If a joint is not moving correctly, then the bones, muscles, and nerves surrounding that area can subluxate or move out of position. When this happens, the nerve to that area will either fire too quickly and send a sharp pain signal, or fire too slowly and a patient may feel a dull pain. Either way, it causes the nearby muscles to spasm which results in the joint being "locked up".
We specialize in multiple chiropractic techniques to help with joint restrictions for patients of every age and body type. We focus on what has caused this joint to "lock up" so that we can not only return normal motion to the area, but prevent it from coming back again. Because we are not just dealing with the symptoms, but actually conquering the root of the problem, it may entail multiple visits and several types of treatments and exercises for us to achieve our goal. Oftentimes these adjustments are painless and patients are able to avoid being dependent on medication or surgery.
Although we concentrate on the spine because it protects the vital nerves of the central nervous system, chiropractic manipulation is safe for all joints throughout the body.
More About Chiropractic
- What is it?
Chiropractic care focuses on properly aligning the body's structures—primarily the spine—to allow for natural, surgery-free healing. A chiropractor's goal is not to give patients drugs so they don't feel pain, but to discover the source of the pain and correct the problem.
- Why chiropractic?
The nervous system controls all of the body's functions, and depends on the vertebrae in your spine to protect it. When your vertebrae are out of line, they can prohibit optimal operation of the nervous system, which can lead to various physical problems.
- Is it safe?
Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe—actually, they're one of the safest kinds of medical care available. And your chiropractor has studied extensively to fully understand the body's systems. The chiropractic-training program is comparable to the program of study for medical doctors. According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic last year for a variety of conditions, and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.
- What problems can it address?
In addition to preventative and wellness care, chiropractic can be used to treat allergies, headaches, lower back pain, fibromyalgia, neck and shoulder pain, numbness, leg pain, scoliosis, and other health issues.
