Discover How Chiropractic Could Help You in 2022

While the spine only acts as the main support for our body, it also protects the spinal cord, which links a large part of the peripheral nervous system to the brain. This is why a minor injury to the spine or overuse of muscles can significantly change a body’s strength, sensation, and performance.

Specific Ways Chiropractic Care May Improve Health

For those suffering from joint problems or chronic pain, chiropractic care may help. While medication provides quick relief or “fixes” for these problems, regular chiropractic care offers long-term relief.

Chiropractic care gets to the root cause of an issue and focuses on safeguarding and enhancing the communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. One of the major benefits of chiropractic is that it can manage pain and various conditions without drugs.

How Does It Work?

A chiropractor aligns the spine through chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Joel gently stretches, thrusts, and applies pressure as needed until the spine is more optimally aligned.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Joel is trained and licensed to apply various techniques to provide customized chiropractic care. He starts with performing a full “needs assessment” before starting care. Once a plan of action is determined, Dr. Joel will perform adjustments. A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to those vertebrae with abnormal movement patterns or ones that don’t function as they should.

The objective of this chiropractic method is to reduce the subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritation and improving function.

Who Could Benefit?

Just about everyone! Cafe of Life Chiropractic Studio sees patients of all ages and with various conditions. Depending on the patient, the intensity and force of adjustments vary. All patients are screened to ensure they are candidates for chiropractic care. For example, many seniors have some thinning or softening of the bones that would rule out adjustments. If we determine that chiropractic care is too risky for a patient, we will refer them to a different healthcare provider.
