Spearheading Spinal Wellness and Progress: Premier Chiropractic Clinic
Chiropractors’ core focus is the diagnosis, correction and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system (spine, pelvis, muscles, ligaments and joints). Chiropractic is nearly always associated with spinal and neck manipulations, but it involves a combination of hands-on care, physical therapy modalities (ultrasounds) and exercise. The really strong, often-cited evidence of the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments is for lower back pain — and a review of spinal manipulation found that it could alleviate back pain.
The notion that spinal adjustment can improve or rectify a host of health conditions is based on a belief held by some chiropractors that misalignments (or “subluxations”) in the spine can impair nervous system function, leading to all kinds of human ailments.
By locating and “correcting” these misalignments, some chiropractors believe they can unblock the nerve flow and eliminate disease, infection and childhood illness. It is important to note, however, that many chiropractors reject this approach. The more evidence-based chiropractors are really limiting their scope of practice to muscular-skeletal conditions and specializing in the spine.
According to the certified experts, there are at least five mechanical, anatomical, and/or neurological things that chiropractic manipulations may do:
1. Release part of a joint capsule that has become entrapped in facet joints, joints between pairs of vertebrae that have been shown to be very sensitive to pain.
2. Reposition part of an intervertebral disc (the rubbery disc between successive vertebrae).
3. Loosen fibrous tissue that formed in a previous injury.
4. Inhibit overactive reflexes in muscles of the spine or limbs.
5. Reduce the compression or irritation of nerves.
They also cite studies suggesting that chiropractic adjustments increase the range of joint motion, increase pain tolerance, increase muscle strength, and so on.
Some chiropractors claim to treat non-musculoskeletal conditions, such as infantile colic, bed wetting, asthma, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders, period pain, ear infections and high blood pressure.
