Health is our most valuable asset. Without health, nothing matters – our careers, our hobbies, our possessions, our family and friends. All of these things lose value when we do not have our health. Chiropractic therapy can help.
Our healthcare model
In our country, our healthcare model is extremely effective for emergency care. When we break a bone or need immediate crisis care, the United States is the best in the world. However, when it comes to natural, preventative healthcare, we are far from the best. As a nation, we are overmedicated and trigger-friendly when it comes to making the decision to have surgery. This kind of approach is far too aggressive in many cases, with higher risks and more side effects.
Chiropractic therapy is the leading approach for non-invasive, natural healthcare. Chiropractic has been proven to be cost-effective in term of resolving health issues. It has also been shown to be one of the gentlest therapies, with the least amount of side effects compared to more aggressive treatments. Chiropractic is so safe, that the profession has one of the lowest malpractice insurance rates.
The benefits of chiropractic therapy
If you haven’t been to a chiropractor before, you may be missing out on healthcare’s best kept secret. Some common conditions that chiropractic therapy is incredibly effective for includes:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Neurological conditions
- Wellness care
What do chiropractors do?
Dr. Axe states that “Chiropractors pride themselves on taking a natural, drugless approach to helping their patients reach their health goals. Essentially, the basic principle upon which the entire profession is built is that the body has the amazing, innate ability to heal itself (under the right conditions), and it is the chiropractor’s job to help create an environment to facilitate this.
Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, chiropractors focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and, if there are shifts, helping the spine come back into alignment.”
The main condition that chiropractors look at is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). Simply put, the Vertebral Subluxation Complex is a condition where the spinal bones misalign and cause stress on the nervous system. Not only will this cause pain and tight muscles in the area of the subluxation, but it will cause other problems within the body. The nerves that branch out from the Central Nervous System go to various parts of the body – including muscles, ligaments and organs. When there is stress on those nerves, which will prevent those areas from working at their optimal level. The Vertebral Subluxation Complex will also affect posture, inflammation, and degeneration in the spine.
These types of issues is exactly what chiropractic therapies are designed to provide solutions for. Doctors of Chiropractic complete a grueling 4 years of graduate studies, which adequately prepare them to diagnose and treat spinal conditions.
Neurological based chiropractic therapy
The chiropractic therapy that we provide in our clinic is a specialty form of chiropractic – neurological-based care. All of our therapies are done in the most specific and gentle way, using state-of-the-art instruments and advanced motion-study x-rays.
Long term results of chiropractic therapy
At Abundant Life Chiropractic, our goal is long-term results. We often hear that patients express their concern about chiropractic therapy being a lifelong commitment. We don’t want you coming in for the same thing for the rest of your life. Our doctors will put together a personalized care plan for you that includes chiropractic adjustment, spinal rehab, stretches and exercises that will retrain the muscles and ligaments of your spine for long-term results.
Another key aspect of our approach is NMR. NMR stands for neuromuscular re-education. Essentially, NMR helps reset the resting length of the muscles and ligaments so that they get adjusted to the proper alignment of the spine. This is a critical aspect that helps us provide our patients with long-term results.
Our team of doctor strives to provide you with the highest quality care in our country, while maintaining a caring bed-side manner. We believe in community and focus on building long-term relationships with the people in our area.
