How does Chiropractic work?

Frequently Asked Questions Apple

Bremen chiropractors are often asked…’How does chiropractic work?’

Chiropractic works by restoring your body’s inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. Chiropractic helps to locate and remove interferences to your nervous system, such as subluxations and misaligned vertebrae. With improved spinal function, there is improved nervous system function.

As a Bremen OH chiropractor our goal is to remove interference that may be impairing normal health through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to heal itself. A healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your keys to optimal health!

Is Chiropractic treatment safe?

Chiropractic care is a widely recognized way to treat neuromusculoskeletal problems without using drugs or any invasive procedures. No health treatments are completely free of potentially harmful effects; but, chiropractic care has an excellent reputation for being safe. The risks associated with chiropractic care are very small and patients usually feel immediate relief after a treatment. While you may feel mild soreness or aching; but, that is similar to the pain you may feel after some forms of exercise. Minor discomfort or soreness following spinal adjustments usually fades within a 24 hour time period.

Neck manipulation is also quite safe. While some reports associate some neck adjustments with a certain kind of stroke, the occurrence appears to be very rare, about 1 in 5.85 million. It is important to be as specific as possible about your symptoms when visiting your chiropractor. This will help your doctor offer the best and most effective treatment.

Can Chiropractic treatments serve as a preventative purpose?

Patients who have had chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease or recurring back and neck pain find that regular chiropractic treatments have reduced pain and symptoms. Chiropractic care is also very beneficial for those working in high-stress environments or those who experience postural strain on a daily basis, to relieve tension and pressure.

Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted?

Adjustment of a joint may result in release of a gas bubble between the joints that makes a popping sound — it’s exactly the same as when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint that results in gas bubbles being released. There is no pain involved.

How long will I take to recover?

Recovery time is dependent on many factors. Factors may include: length of time you have suffered from the condition, age and physical fitness, diet and lifestyle as well as details of any previous accidents and injuries. The sooner the condition is treated, the quicker it will respond to care.
