Understanding Chiropractic Care
Often viewed as alternative medicine, chiropractic care is a safe and non-invasive treatment option for many people. This medicine focuses on restoring the body to a balanced state by creating harmony between the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. Through a variety of techniques, chiropractic care is able to cure or alleviate the symptoms associated with injury, chronic disease, or even systemic ailments. Our team at Cocoa Chiropractic is available to help with any injury or illness, and is eager to return you to a pain free life.
What Injuries Can a Chiropractor Help With?
A chiropractor is usually associated with health related to the neck, back, and spine. This can include a number of injuries ranging from soft tissue injuries, like a sprain or strain, to structural injuries such as a herniated disc or bone fracture. A chiropractor can also help with injuries that occur in other areas of the body. Often, injuries to the arms, legs, feet, and ankles can be cured by realigning the spine. Following an automobile accident, many people choose a chiropractor to help restore alignment to the spine, or help with common accident injuries such as whiplash.
A chiropractor can also help with many chronic diseases. Many patients seek out a chiropractor, such as those at Cocoa Chiropractic, to help with ongoing problems associated with scoliosis, osteoarthritis, and even systemic illnesses like allergies or lupus. While chiropractic care will not cure these chronic illnesses, many of the symptoms associated with these diseases can be mitigated. Many people find relief from symptoms with regular chiropractic care, and often turn to this alternative medicine practice.
What Will a Chiropractor Do?
A chiropractor has many tools at his or her disposal to help heal injuries and alleviate symptoms. Most commonly, a chiropractor will use manual manipulation to help relieve undue stress on various bones, soft tissues, and joints. Further, a chiropractor may use various stretching and strengthening exercises to help build strength and flexibility. Physical therapy may be prescribed to help with injuries. A chiropractor has an arsenal of medical techniques ranging from electro stimulation to medical massage. A chiropractor will often combine multiple treatment options to create a custom plan for each patient. By working with your chiropractor, you will be able to find the right treatment plan to help get you on the road to recovery.
