If you experience back pain, neck pain or headaches, it can be difficult to enjoy a quality of life, especially if the pain is constant or severe. Many people visit a chiropractor in the effort to help relieve these kinds of pains and others in the body. Chiropractic care is well known for being able to eliminate or greatly reduce the amount of pain that a person endures without invasive surgery or medications. Through manual adjustments to the spine and other alternative treatment solutions, mobility can be restored to joints and pain can be relieved in muscles, bones, cartilage and tissues. The idea is that by properly aligning the spine, the body is encouraged to heal itself naturally. At Stuart Spine Center, we specialize in progressive rehabilitation, meaning we often pair chiropractic adjustments with additional physical therapies to aid in a more comfortable and quicker recovery. Dr. Alyssa Kenyon will create a treatment plan tailored to your body’s needs to ensure that you are receiving the best technique for your specific condition.
What Is A Chiropractic Adjustment?
At Stuart Spine Center, Dr. Alyssa Kenyon performs chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulation. Prior to the chiropractic adjustment, joint movements throughout the entire body are evaluated to determine if any joint restrictions are present. Spinal manipulation will restore mobility in any restricted joints or any areas that are misaligned. If sections of the spine are misaligned for extended periods of time, nerve damage, inflammation and chronic issues, such as degeneration, may start to form. Misalignment can happen for many reasons, ranging from injury and stress to poor posture and even originate from our favorite recreational activities. The common adjustment typically includes a very shallow thrust which may or may not result in an audible “pop”. This sound is created by the movement of “air bubbles” naturally located within our joint/synovial fluid.
Boosting The Immune System With Chiropractic Care
Many people think that chiropractic care is only focused on managing neck and back pain and bringing relief. However, regular chiropractic care has several benefits, such as improving spinal health and restoring joint function, which helps in supporting the nervous system. As a result of having improved mobility, the immune system is boosted. Health benefits can also be appreciated in relieving physiological stress. Chiropractic care can come with full-body therapy options, which help in pain relieving and increasing general health. Treatments can and will vary depending on the ailment and objective.
The Relation Between The Immune System And Spine
There is a direct relationship between the spine and the immune system since the nervous system communicates to other parts of the body using the spinal cord. When the spinal cord has been damaged, or is in the wrong position, communication will not take place. This results in having pain symptoms and being prone to injury or falling sick. The constriction of nerve pathways causes a negative impact on the body’s ability to fight against diseases. Research has indicated that chiropractic care is made to soothe pain and stress and enable the spine to be in its rightful position. This boosts a person’s immune system immensely.
Stress can also weaken the immune system because the state of mind a person is in largely impacts their health. The most common psychosomatic symptom is back pain due to many people tending to carry their stress specifically in their shoulders, necks, and backs. A high amount of stress can result in constant back pain issues, which negatively impacts the immune system. Chiropractic care works under the idea that when the spine is aligned, natural healing can take place because there is no restriction or blockage to cells, tissues and organs. By visiting a chiropractor, a person will have an increased ability to recover from either an illness or injury when it occurs.
A person who integrates chiropractic care into their health routine regularly can gain many benefits, both physical and emotional. Regular maintenance of the body can help to reduce the chances of injury, boost physical performance and lead to more quality of life if pain is reduced. Using chiropractic care as a preventative measure can be essential to long term wellness. Regular chiropractic adjustments along with lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise recommendations can help to lessen the chances of incurring a more substantial health setback later.
