What Does Chiropractic Treat?
The simple answer to what chiropractic treats is Vertebral Subluxations. If you’re not quite sure what these are, I’ll keep it simple. The bones of the spine (vertebrae) can shift backwards. When this occurs, it causes swelling in the joint, puts pressure on the nerve and you often times feel that as pain.
You won’t always have to experience pain though. Pressure on the nerve will cause the nerve to not function properly and can lead to problems elsewhere in the body. Below is a list of symptoms someone may experience when they have subluxations:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- TMJ issues
- Heart Burn
- Ear Infections
- Vocal Issues
- Vision Disturbances
These symptoms can and often due decrease with chiropractic care once the subluxations are removed from the spine thus allowing the nervous system to function properly.
