How Chiropractic Care Can Help You

In a time when many doctors over prescribe medication (with dangerous side effects), advocate invasive treatments, or simply treat the symptoms of a disease… chiropractic care is a stark alternative.

Chiropractors believe the body can heal itself when the nervous system is free from interference. This belief stands the test of time, and has proven to be true countless number of times. 

Chiropractic seeks to correct the underlying causes of an issue and improve a patient’s health without drugs or surgery.

It’s a well-established field of natural health care. Many people realize the benefits of chiropractic care, especially because of the advantages it offers compared to conventional medical care. According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 35 million people in the United States alone seek chiropractic treatment each year.

What Chiropractic Can Treat

Conditions like back pain or spinal issues might be the first thing that comes to mind with chiropractic care. In addition, this field also treats conditions like headaches and migraines, neck pain, ear pain, sciatica, arthritis and joint pain, and tinnitus, carpal tunnel syndrome and scoliosis.

Often, patients seek chiropractic treatment after a sports injury, car accident or other personal injury. After  realizing an improvement in their symptoms, patients often note that they didn’t realize how bad they felt until their spinal subluxations were corrected. They find improvements with their pain symptoms, but also enjoy better sleep and an overall sense of well being. Often, clients choose to continue chiropractic care with maintenance or well visits because they realize the benefits of maintaining a healthy, subluxation-free spine. It is considered a “holistic” approach to healthcare, where a path to overall wellness is sought.

And it works.

A study from the European Spine Journal found that chiropractic adjustments had a success rate of 72% in treating sciatica. In another year-long study of patients with neck pain, those who underwent chiropractic treatment had a faster recovery than patients who received physiotherapy or care from a general practitioner doctor.

How Chiropractic Works

The term “chiropractic” is made of the Greek words kheir, “hand,” and praktikos (meaning “practical”). So essentially it means hands-on treatment. And that’s exactly what a chiropractic doctor does.

The idea is to safely and carefully adjust the area of the spine that may be affecting communication between the body and the brain. The slight misalignments of the spine that interrupt the transmission of nerve impulses are called subluxations. These are precisely what the doctor of chiropractic is trained in the detection and correction of.

Your nervous system controls just about every function in the body, including every organ, tissue, and system. Disruption of communication in the nervous system may be indicated in a variety of health problems, including those not related to the spine or spinal cord. Therefore, any issue within the nervous system can impact overall health.

By adjusting the spine, the impact on the nervous system is reduced, communication between the body and brain is restored, and specific health issues the patient is having are improved. No surgery or medication needed.

By re-aligning the spine, your body is allowed to heal and is less likely suffer future medical issues. Chiropractic treats the root cause of a health problem, not just the symptom.

A Chiropractic Treatment Plan

During a patient’s first visit, Dr. Finkbeiner will take a detailed medical history and do a thorough physical examination. Close attention will be placed on the spine. X-rays may be required to help her examine the patient’s internal structure of their spine and joints.

There are also other things that could be impacting your health that Dr. Finkbeiner may address when treating patients, including exercise and diet, sleep, heredity, and posture and environment.

Following a tailored treatment plan, Dr. Finkbeiner will make detailed and specific adjustments, especially to the spine and other joints to allow transmissions to flow through the nervous system correctly. Although adjustment of the spine is one of the most important elements in chiropractic, there are many treatment options that work conjunctly with the adjustments to enhance healing.

Dr. Finkbeiner make referral for massage, acupuncture and nutritional therapy.

Each treatment plan is personalized to the patient – so no two will look alike. The common thread is to properly balance the nervous system and correct vertebral subluxations.

Nutrition Response Testing

This testing uses a specific protocol to address underlying causes of nutritional deficiency and toxicity to aid in health restoration.  This technique, when applied correctly and when complied with appropriately, can handle and address many underlying causes to an individuals health concerns.
