Medford Chiropractor Explains Why Chiropractic Works
At Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, Medford chiropractor, Dr. Goldman has been helping people achieve pain relief and better overall health for nearly two decades. The majority of our patients are looking for relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, car accident injuries and sport related injuries. However, there is more to chiropractic care than just reacting to an injury or painful condition. It is about being proactive through good posture and correct spinal alignment in all of ones daily activities.
Spinal Health Improves with Chiropractic Care
Your mother gave you excellent advice when she told you not to slouch. Dr. Goldman teaches each patient that their posture—the correct alignment of all the vertebrae in your spine—is the foundation of good health. This is because your spine is the conduit for your spinal cord; the network cable that connects your brain to every other part of your body. As nerves split off from the spinal cord to their many destinations around the body, they pass between the various vertebrae on their way. When the spine is correctly aligned, these nerves can safely deliver their messages to and from the brain and the brain can direct any processes that need to occur. When the vertebrae are out of alignment, however, nerves are pinched. A pinched nerve cannot deliver these messages and a state of dysfunction starts to develop. These problems may start out small, but without correction in the form of chiropractic spinal adjustments, they can become painful and debilitating.
Medford chiropractor, Dr. Goldman, is extensively trained and experienced in delivering chiropractic spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignment, which are also known as “subluxations.” After a thorough examination and patient medical history, Dr. Goldman is able to pinpoint which vertebrae need correction. He then uses several different hands-on adjustment techniques to work the vertebrae back into their optimal position. This releases the pinched nerves, thus enabling your brain to do its job of directing healing resources and messages to areas of the body that need help.
Chiropractic care is an extremely effective, drug-free alternative treatment for many different conditions. Most frequently, we help people struggling with back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica and arthritis. Chiropractic care is very helpful for people recovering from injuries that affect the body’s musculoskeletal alignment, which is common in car accident injuries.
You do not have to be in pain to benefit from seeing our Medford chiropractor. Minor subluxations can start causing problems before you feel any pain at all. So it is a great idea to come and see Dr. Goldman for a posture checkup so that small alignment problems can be corrected before they grow and start causing pain. We feel it is always better to prevent pain, rather than needing to repair it later.
