Chiropractic treatment is holistic. It helps to improve joint coordination which may have been severely impeded by sports injuries, accidents, falls, musculoskeletal ailments or disorders. Patients with limited range of motion are generally referred to a chiropractor who can provide considerable relief from pain and help restore maximum body movement. In many cases, chiropractic treatment is found to be far more effective than invasive procedures and drugs.

Manual Manipulation and its Advantages

Chiropractors perform manual manipulation and other techniques which work to normalize the functions of the spine and the nervous system. This in turn provides relief from various disorders and improves the body’s natural healing process. With gentle and controlled thrust of the hands, the specialist is able to correct subluxation (misaligned vertebrae) and realign the joints of the body. Passive and isometric stretching techniques and massage may also be included in the treatment depending on the patient’s condition. Joints like the ankles, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders and even the jaw respond well to manual manipulation.

Apart from improving joint coordination and reducing stress and inflammation, chiropractic care can provide many other benefits that can help maintain the patient’s overall health condition. Some of them are:

• Strengthens the body
• Increases flexibility
• Increases vitality
• Improves blood circulation
• Reduces response to painful stimuli
• Reduces muscle spasm
• Prevents injury
• Improves the body’s immunity
• Promotes natural healing

A chiropractic adjustment generally takes about 10 to 30 minutes for completion, during which patients begin to feel the effectiveness of the ‘hands-on’ treatment.

Chiropractic Treatment Enhances the Body’s Natural Healing Power

Chiropractic treatment is not a part of mainstream medicine. Nonetheless, it is becoming more popular by the day as it utilizes only safe and gentle techniques to heal the body and improve joint coordination. As a holistic treatment, it enhances the body’s natural healing power. There is practically no risk or complication involved if treated by a licensed and experienced chiropractor. Many renowned healthcare and pain management facilities in New York have started to adopt and offer chiropractic care owing to its growing demand.
