Why is a chiropractor used?
A chiropractor is used to improve a patient’s nervous system function by focusing on the underlying cause of your back pain and other symptoms, instead of suppressing them. Chiropractic adjustments of the spine, joints, and muscles can quickly cause relief, and improve spinal and extremity joint mobility. At Performance Health, our chiropractor’s main goal is to help reduce your back pain and correct any spinal problems.
Do I need to see a chiropractor if my back pain goes away?
Many people visit a chiropractor only when they are experiencing extreme back pain. While this is an important time to have your back evaluated by a medical professional, it is not always the only time that a chiropractor can help improve your health.
Commonly, patients will assume that is if they don’t feel back pain anymore, their condition has been “miraculously cured.” It is vital to remember that pain is only sometimes an indication of your spinal health. In most cases, back pain only becomes a symptom of a spinal problem when the condition has escalated.
What are the benefits of receiving long-term chiropractic care?
We encourage continuing chiropractic care to maintain the health of your musculoskeletal system. Just like you would want to support your overall health by exercising and incorporating a proper nutrition program, chiropractic adjustments are necessary for continued physical health and well-being. Handling the stresses of everyday life is easier if your body is at its “optimum health.”
