Chiropractic Q & A

What should I know about chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care specializes in problems affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, with a focus on the spine and how it impacts your bodywide health. 

Since all the nerves travelling between your brain and body go through your spine, misaligned vertebrae can pinch nerves, resulting in physical problems throughout your body.

As chiropractic techniques correct spinal subluxations, your body returns to a healthy, balanced state that allows its natural healing ability to restore your health. Here’s one example to highlight how chiropractic treats problems in your body: 

You probably wouldn’t think to go to a chiropractor to treat an ear disorder. But when vertebrae in your neck are misaligned, they can pinch the vestibular nerve, which regulates balance in your inner ear. 

As chiropractic treatment corrects the spinal problem, the nerve is free to heal, and problems with balance improve.

What health conditions does chiropractic often treat?

The team at Acupuncture Centers of South Florida treats a wide range of health conditions with chiropractic care, but some of the most frequent problems they see include:

  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Herniated disc
  • Knee pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Radiculopathy (pinched nerve like sciatica)

In addition to treating specific conditions, chiropractic treatment produces wide-ranging effects, including:

  • Increased mobility
  • Decreased stiffness
  • Relaxed muscle spasms
  • Improved performance and energy
  • Better sense of balance
  • Enhanced healing
  • Reduced inflammation

Chiropractic boosts your overall sense of well-being, relieves stress, and helps you relax.
