Our Murfreesboro chiropractor, Dr. Stanlick, wants you to know that if you suffer aggravating pain as the result of an accident, repetitive stress injury or a chronic health condition, there is alternative and effective care - chiropractic treatment.
But how exactly does chiropractic treatment work? How can something as natural and non-invasive as a physical adjustment from our Murfreesboro chiropractor, followed by a regimen of back exercises, make a dramatic difference in pain management? How does the chiropractor use gentle pressure to guide your body toward healing itself?
To understand how pain is relieved, you must understand what pain is and what yours is trying to tell you. Pain is a signal relayed through the nerves from an ill or injured part of the body to the brain, like an alarm bell warning you of danger. In many cases, direct pressure on the nerves themselves can cause terrible, unremitting pain. Since your spinal cord acts as the central conduit for all these nerve signals, pressure on the nerves in that area can result in back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches and a host of other problems.
What causes this pressure on the nerves within the spinal column? It may occur as a result of either sudden acute injury or a chronic physical misalignment. An automobile accident, for instance, can cause the driver's head to pitch violently, causing neck pain. A fall in the home or other common mishap can lead to a herniated disc that presses on the nerves to cause back pain. The pain can also shoot down through the nerves in the legs as sciatica, making everyday tasks around Murfreesboro feel like torture. On a less dramatic scale, small misalignment's in leg length, stiff muscles that do not flex properly, or spinal curvature can all cause ongoing pain. Chronic misalignment's causing biochemical "misfires" in the nerves can even make your allergies worse.
Chiropractic care addresses all of these issues and assists with pain management, without the trauma of surgery or (possibly addictive) painkillers. A chiropractor administers a quick, precise amount of thrust against the spine that pushes the vertebrae back into their correct alignment. The release of pressure on the spinal nerves relieves back pain and other ailments as the nerves return to normal function. This adjustment, sometimes called "cracking" after the sound made by trapped gas exiting the impinged area, allows the body to heal itself for lasting results.
At our Murfreesboro facility, we believe that your own body is its own best doctor - we simply help it back onto the path of natural healing. We also practice much more than structural repair and pain management; we also provide you with back exercises and general health tips to help you stay well.
