Charlotte chiropractors help body function
When you seek treatment from Charlotte chiropractors, you are taking charge of how well your body functions. Chiropractic care helps to maintain your nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of your body. Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. When your nervous system is compromised by injury or spinal misalignment, Charlotte chiropractors seek to locate and reduce those areas of irritation so your natural capacity to heal is restored. Chiropractic works by helping your body work as it was designed.
Are you injured? General causes of pain
When a patient seeks chiropractic care for back or neck pain, generally his pain is due to a spinal misalignment, or because of biomechanical or structural problems with his spine. When positioning of vertebrae and supporting structures have shifted, movements become ineffective, stressful and painful. By realigning spinal segments and restoring normal motion, Charlotte chiropractors correct structural positioning and improve normal motion. This is the job of the spinal adjustment.
When joint nerves in the spine are stimulated to proper function, pain and muscle spasms are eliminated and muscles can relax. When motion to the affected joint is restored by spinal adjustment, inflammation, which irritates pain fibers, can be eliminated. The spinal adjustment is a safe, natural, noninvasive procedure used by your Charlotte chiropractor to restore and improve your health. Learning the art of adjusting is a skill that requires years of study and practice, and doctors of chiropractic like those at ChiroCarolina® in Charlotte NC are trained to deliver the chiropractic adjustment. An adjustment is usually delivered using the hands, or through the use of a specialized mechanical tool.
In addition to the spine and pelvis, Charlotte chiropractors can adjust almost every other joint in your body. This includes the joints in your hands and feet, wrists and ankles, elbows and knees, shoulders and hips, ribs and the jaw. Like the joints of the spine, joints in the extremities can also become misaligned and fixated. Chiropractic adjustment techniques can restore and enhance extremity joint functioning, thereby increasing the life of the joint and keeping wear and tear to a minimum. This is of special interest to athletes who generally demand optimal joint performance from highly stressed joints. Adjusting provides an immediate increase in joint range of motion and also supplies the joint with nutrients, as motion is the only way to bring nutrients into the joint cartilage and flush wastes products out.
Did your mother ever warn you that cracking your knuckles could give you arthritis? Sorry, but she was wrong! Researchers now believe knuckle cracking actually increases joint nutrition, and maintains joint motion; healthy joints lower the incidence of arthritis. Chiropractic spinal adjustments sometimes, but not always, evoke a similar cracking sound, called cavitation, signaling the movement of gases and nutrients within the joint.
