Most people think of chiropractors as the “bone doctors,” and while they definitely know their bones (all 206 of them!), chiropractic does so much more! 

Chiropractic care is primarily used for treatment of muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments, and can alleviate even the most acute back and neck pain or headache. But preventative chiropractic care at offices like Monroe Chiropractic and Massage can also help with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, posture, mental health and much, much more.

The focus of chiropractic is actually to help your body work in a natural, holistic way to ensure all of your musculoskeletal and nervous system parts are working at their optimal levels.  This means that your body is doing what it’s supposed to do, which often kicks out the bad things that cause disease and pain.

The brain is in charge of sending messages through your spinal cord to everything in your body.  If there are nerves that are bent or twisted along the way in your spine, they can block these messages, preventing your body from healing or acting as you need it to.  By keeping your nervous system in shape, chiropractic care can help your body perform at its maximum level. Spinal health is extremely important to your body because your nerves run everywhere. 

While many medications treat the symptoms of pain, regular spinal adjustments can actually get to the root cause of the pain, fixing it so that it goes away completely instead of simply being hidden.  However, in the off-chance that your manipulations can’t completely correct the problem, it can definitely give you drug-free relief without the (often unknown) side effects that come with your medications.

In addition to spinal therapy for pain, chiropractic has also been known to help with fertility issues, ear infections and menstrual disorders just to name a few. Working along with your primary care physician or other general practitioner, your chiropractor can offer you treatments that are customizable to your specific needs. Chiropractic is also the safest, and often only, option for pregnant women who need relief from pain, and it also offers many other health benefits during pregnancy.

In addition to spinal manipulation, massage therapy and low level laser as well as soft custom orthotics can be performed at Monroe Chiropractic and Massage.  Your chiropractor can also suggest lifestyle changes to help your body and mind, as well as nutritional guidelines, natural supplements, and exercise to benefit your specific needs. Remember, chiropractic care treats the whole body, starting with the nervous system inside out, not just the symptoms, so you feel better in general all over.

The benefits of chiropractic care are endless.  Why don’t you call your local chiropractor today and schedule an appointment to discuss how your specific problems can be helped?  Your brain will send messages through your nervous system in the form of relief to your 206 bones and the rest of your body to say thank you!
