Who Should See A Chiropractor
Chiropractors treat people of all ages and from all walks of life. From babies to high-performance sportspeople and the elderly, chiropractic care relieves pain and enhances the body’s ability to heal by correcting its alignment.
Think of your spinal cord as an information hub that directs messages from all over your body. It’s protected by the bones of the spine, and the whole structure is further supported by muscles. It’s logical that any imbalance will have a knock-on effect on your wellbeing.
Common Ailments for Chiropractic Treatment
Backache and sciatica are obvious targets for chiropractic care as are sports injuries, shocks, and repetitive stress injuries affecting the back or neck. But chiropractic care can go much further than that.
Many migraine headache sufferers find relief in chiropractic treatments, and it is believed that chiropractic care may help for other ailments because it facilitates homeostasis – the body’s ability to maintain its own healthful balance.
Coping with Physical Stress
You don’t need to be ill or in pain to visit a chiropractor. At certain times of our lives, preventative treatment is very much in order. An expectant mother who consults a chiropractor will receive treatment that helps her body to adapt better to the physical stress of pregnancy and which may even help with baby’s development.
If you’re serious about sports, chiropractic care might give you the edge – and not only when you’re recovering from injuries. If your workout is hurting you, a visit to your Surrey chiropractor could get you back on form.
Anyone Who Has Been in an Impact
Whether it’s a car accident or a sports field accident, the damage caused by a severe impact often only comes to light days later. Once you’ve been checked out by medical personnel on the scene or at the emergency room and sent home, contact your chiropractor.
Your Symptoms are Returning
If you previously worked with a chiropractor and experienced improvement but are now seeing a return of your symptoms, it’s time to see your chiropractor again. There could be a physical or lifestyle reason why your problem is flaring up again, and another course of treatments might be in order.
Usually, Pain is the Trigger
Oftentimes, a regular doctor really does follow the “take two aspirin” cliché. When it comes to pain and inflammation, it’s usually ibuprofen, and the doctor carefully does not ask you to call in the morning.
That’s because there are some things no pill can heal. Usually, your body heals itself quite nicely, but if it doesn’t, there’s something wrong, and a chiropractor could be the person to kick start the healing process again.
If you’re in pain and regular doctors haven’t been able to help, or you’d like to reduce your painkiller use, visiting a chiropractor might just be life-changing.
Managing Pain; Facilitating Healing
Chiropractic isn’t a cure-all, but it can be a good adjunct to treatment across a wide variety of ailments – or a treatment in itself when nothing else seems to work. If you’re dealing with pain or hope to enhance your body’s inner balance so that it can heal itself more effectively, call us for a consultation.
