How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
Achieve Optimum Health
Our Salado chiropractor's goal is helping the body's central nervous system function as nature intended. The nervous system is one of the first parts of the body to develop, as it controls all of the body's other systems, organs, and cells. Growth, development, and health all depend on messages being successfully delivered to and from the brain via the nerves that make their way through the spinal column throughout the whole body. When the vertebrae are properly aligned, the nerves convey their messages and the body is healthy.
From the moment a baby is born, however, there are a million things that work to tease the vertebrae out of alignment: poor sleep positions, trips, and falls, car accidents, sports injuries, poor posture habits… the list goes on. When nerves are pinched, those important messages go awry. Depending on which nerves are pinched, anything from lower back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain to sciatica, fibromyalgia, headaches, and migraines and a host of other problems can crop up. Many people turn to pharmaceuticals to relieve their pain, but these only cover up the problem without solving it.
Get at the Root of your pain
Chiropractic care, however, can solve the root problem. Chiropractor Dr. Crain can help restore the spine's natural, healthy alignment so that nerves are released and the nervous system can function at its top capacity again. Dr. Crain gives each patient a complete exam to determine the exact location of spinal misalignments that are causing problems.
Chiropractic care is complemented with massage therapy with each patient to design a course of spinal adjustments, complemented by massage therapy, acupuncture, nutritional and exercise counseling that will get the body back in balance from the inside out. This very often provides long-term, meaningful relief from lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches and migraines, fibromyalgia and more.
Yet chiropractic care does more than just relieve pain. Because spinal misalignments do not always hurt initially, they may still be pinching nerves and causing problems long before a person realizes it. Coming in for a spinal checkup to catch these subluxations before they cause problems can actually prevent pain from becoming an issue in the first place, all while clearing your path to complete wellness.
