Chiropractic emphasizes care of the human frame which includes the spinal column. Ideally the spinal column should be symmetrical, flexible, and properly aligned. This allows the body to function properly at an optimal level.
Keeping a properly aligned and flexible spine helps improve posture and mobility. This is important to your overall health and well-being.
There is a lot you can do to maintain this perfect balance.
Breathing, strength, coordination, and energy expenditure are directly influenced by spinal alignment.
If you have a rotated spine, high hip, or high shoulder you will need to expend more energy doing every day simple tasks like walking and lifting. As a result, you’ll feel fatigued and will be prone to developing back pain.
Chiropractic adjustments allow your body is to be more efficient so there is less wear and tear on the musculoskeletal system.
Elite athletes whose jobs require peak efficiency body mechanics have been using chiropractic care in the past decades to give them an athletic advantage over their competition.
A poorly aligned spine is more susceptible to degenerative changes and injury due to uneven body weight distribution. This over time, can eventually erode intervertebral discs and joints.
Abnormal spinal alignment and movement can also degrade the function of nerves known as proprioceptors, which are responsible for back muscle coordination and reflexes that help us maintain proper posture.
Chiropractic treatment involves spinal manipulation, commonly called the adjustment. One type chiropractic technique is the Diversified Chiropractic Technique that uses a whole body approach to spinal and extra-spinal adjustments.
Chiropractic adjustments typically consists of a series of spinal manipulations utilizing a gentle hand delivered low force and high velocity motion to the affected vertebrae. This helps facilitate proper alignment and improves flexibility of the spine and the associated muscles.
