Chiropractic Healthcare Benefits
Central to your spine is the nervous system, which is really what chiropractic healthcare is all about. The nervous system is the command and control center of the body, controlling every impulse and action. Chiropractic adjustments relieve tension on the spinal cord, which in turn allows the nervous system to function as it was designed to. As the nervous system controls every system in the body, chiropractic care addresses a great number of organic conditions including vertigo, indigestion, asthma, constipation, insomnia and ear infections (to name a few). Enhancing the function of the nervous system through chiropractic is also proven to enhance immune system function and leads to higher energy levels. As you might expect, our spinal care also relieves direct nerve irritation that causes back and neck pain, sciatica, arm and hand numbness and tingling, carpal tunnel syndrome and a variety of other nerve-related conditions.
Our holistic approach allows us to effectively treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues in addition to back pain (although studies prove chiropractic care is the quickest and most cost effective solution for back pain). Conditions commonly treated through chiropractic in our Longmont office include headaches, shoulder, arm and hand pain, hip, leg and foot pain- really about any type of pain you can point out!
Our comprehensive structural care addresses a full scope of soft tissue injuries as well. After all, muscles attach to bones and not only cause bones to move out of place, but in some instances may be the source of pain. Our biomechanical expertise allows us to correctly identify and successfully treat conditions like tendonitis, bursitis and plantar fascitis. Chiropractic healthcare also addresses muscle tension, limited range of motion and chronic knots.
Chiropractic medicine is very effective for the management of athletic injuries. We commonly see sprained ankles, swollen knees and shoulder injuries. We provide the proper assessment and management to speed your recovery and, if necessary, we have a team of experts we can refer to for more serious conditions.
One of our favorite patient populations are infants and children. Babies have nursed for the first time in our office, colic and bedwetting has ceased, and babies have slept through the night. We treat fussy babies, ADHD children, and those with diagnosed (and undiagnosed) learning disabilities. We love children, and see noteworthy success with all types of pediatric chiropractic conditions.
