Back pain, neck pain and headaches are the most common reasons for people to initially consult our office. Our focus always is to start by alleviating the symptoms that are of greatest concern to the patient.
The chiropractic emphasis on improving the function of the spinal column is a very effective means to reducing pain in the back, neck, and head. But as we work with patients, they often report that other problems they are experiencing also improve. These are not issues they initially came to us for and may never have thought chiropractic could help.
Some examples that have shown improvement in conjunction with spinal adjustments have been: improved chest muscle tension and breathing due to asthma, light headed feelings gone, constipation decreased, plugged ears opened, reduced tingling in the hands, leg cramps decreased and even improved blood pressure. In every case the patient came to us for back pain, neck pain or headaches. How is it possible for all these other conditions to have improved?
The answer is simply, when a chiropractor restores normal function of the spinal joints, is there reduced pain in the spine, reduced muscle tension and better joint movement. These nerves control how well all the parts of the body work. That means that the heart, lungs, stomach, bowel, blood vessels, muscles, hands, feet, etc. will have improved nerve supply and can be healthier. This is the reason it is so important to have a healthy spine. It is crucial to having a healthy body. Then the body will do what it was designed to do, the results may be un-expected for the patient, but beneficial all the same.
The healing power of the body does wonderful things all the time.
