As a natural, whole-body care that can help people with several health problems ranging from back pain to headaches and fibromyalgia, chiropractic care is indeed tremendously beneficial in helping people live more active and healthier lives. In fact, it is necessary to mention that these benefits can either be both long-term and short-term. Chiropractic therapies are generally based on the fact that all functions of the body are controlled and coordinated by the central nervous system for optimal health and wellness.
Preventive healthcare is among the fastest growing areas of chiropractic care. This means that it isn’t only for a patient who has been involved in an accident or the elderly, but for anyone who would like to enjoy the following benefits.
One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care is that of pain reduction, especially pain associated with symptomatic musculoskeletal complaints or any other spinal related conditions. Identification and treatment of misalignments of the vertebrae (subluxations) can be performed by Dr. Berard, here at Midland Sports Rehab.
Perhaps it is important to note that chiropractic care for pain relief is more effective than the use of pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medications that merely mask the symptoms and may cause terrible health complications. Chiropractic manipulative therapy (CMT) has emerged as one of the best chiropractic techniques for pain related complaints, according to recent research.
Improve Joint Range of Motion
The main emphasis of most chiropractic care techniques is the joint health, as well as attempts to optimize the patient’s range of motion. As a matter of fact, an outward marker that we use at Midland Sports Rehab to determine a patient’s progress towards optimal health and fitness is the ability of the patient to move body segments through full dynamic ranges of joint motion.
Dr. Berard performs soft tissue adjustments on tendons, muscles and ligaments or uses CMT to increase joint range of motion. We can even recommend specific range of motion workouts to be performed at home on a daily basis. Easier movements of joints can also increase joint flexibility through a pain-free state. This is one of the key reasons as to why some top professional sporting clubs employ team chiropractors.
Chiropractic Care Increases Quality of Life
Due to the fact that the entire nervous system of the body is so closely related to the spine as well as its condition and position, chiropractic care can have a huge impact on how the entire body functions. If a nerve is pinched in the spinal column, communication from the brain to the corresponding organ is diminished. Therefore, the body cannot possibly perform at its most optimal levels due to a weak signal from the brain. By use of chiropractic adjustments, for instance, pressure can be lifted off the nerve and brain signals can begin to flow strongly throughout the body once more. At this point, the body can begin to heal itself, while the quality of life increases. Generally speaking, when the body feels good, life is good.
