What Is Chiropractic Care and How Can It Help?
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive form of medical care used to treat muscle and joint problems including, but not limited to, back pain, neck pain, headaches and pain in the joints of the arms or legs.
In addition to this, Chiropractic care helps to remove misalignments in the spinal column, thus allowing proper nerve communication and innervation from the brain to the body, so all organs, muscles, and tissues are operating at their highest level.
Chiropractors remove misalignments through specific manipulations or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues.
The purpose of spinal manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a gentle, controlled force into joints that have lost their normal movement as a result of a tissue injury. This manipulation will restore mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
Treating Joint and Spinal Injuries with Chiropractic Care
Joint injuries can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as the force of an auto accident, a fall, or through repetitive stress, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time.
If these injuries and joint restrictions are not treated right away by a chiropractor, the tissue that connects to these joint structures become extremely tight, creating adhesions known as trigger points. In addition, because the joint itself is restricted in its range of motion, the fluid that hydrates the region is not able to properly lubricate the structure, this allows arthritis to set in overtime which increases pain to the area.
Dr. Murdock is also a certified nurse practitioner which is extremely unique. Dr. Murdock is the only provider in the area with these credentials. This allows a much broader scope of practice. In certain cases Doctor Murdock will use treatments like joint injections, trigger point injections and steroid injections. Being a Doctor who is able to use Natural Care along with prescription medications also allows him to save his patients a trip to urgent care or even the emergency room, and do everything in one place.
Does Chiropractic Care Hurt?
Chiropractic adjustments rarely cause discomfort, however, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment that usually resolves itself within 12 to 48 hours.
In many cases, such as lower back pain caused by an auto accident, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment.
Chiropractic care can complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition all while eliminating the need for painful surgeries or dangerous medications.
