Chiropractic Care in Tallahassee
But chiropractors don’t just treat back pain. About 35 million people per year — adults and children — see a chiropractor for various reasons.
Many people seek relief from pain caused by accidents, muscles strains, and sports injuries, among other things.
In fact, all 32 teams in the National Football League use chiropractors to help keep their athletes in condition and prevent and treat injuries.
Some other things chiropractic can help with are:
- Pain relief for spine and extremities
- Relief from headaches
- Increasing range of motion
- Decreasing muscle spasms
- Relieving arthritic joints
- Contributing to joint health
- Increased energy and athletic performance
- increased sense of well-being and relaxation
- Better balance and coordination
- Reduced injury risk
- Enhanced tissue healing
- Decreased inflammation
Seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis can also help maintain the health of your spine and contribute to overall health and wellness.
Chiropractors practice a hands-on technique called spinal manipulation to move the structures of the spine into their proper position for optimal functioning.
The theory behind this is that correct alignment of the underlying musculoskeletal system of the body allows the body to heal itself without invasive surgeries or the risk of addictive prescription medications.
Spinal manipulation can help reduce pain and restore motion in most cases, no matter whether the problem was caused by repetitive stress or an acute event.
Chiropractic can serve as a natural pain relief alternative for aching muscles, stiff joints, and pain associated with bones and connective tissue, such as tendons, cartilage, and ligaments.
How Is Chiropractic Different?
Chiropractors take a whole-body approach to health and wellness.
Although they also use diagnostic tests like X-rays and ultrasounds to pinpoint structural issues, they also take an in-depth look at diet, nutrition, stress, and lifestyle to formulate an ongoing care plan.
This kind of individualized attention to all elements of your lifestyle that can contribute to — or detract from — your health allows your chiropractor to suggest overarching ways to improve your well-being.
