Chiropractic practice is a form of health care seeking to make corrections to the spine and relieve pressure from the vertebrae. This practice can treat many conditions and promote healthy joint functions.

This will help if you need help with engaging the services of a chiropractor near you, or a chiropractor in Traverse City.

What Does A Chiropractic Practice Entail?

Chiropractors are trained experts who recommend exercises to treat and rehabilitate health conditions related to the bones, muscles, and joints. They also work to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle advice using a broad range of methods for diagnosis, including hands-on clinical examination, and also diagnostic imaging such as x-rays or MRIs. Chiropractors do not prescribe medications.

The following are some of the functions of a chiropractor:

  • Toggle drop
  • Table adjustments
  • TENS (Transcutaneous electrical stimulation)
  • Release work
  • Lumbar roll
  • Cold and heat treatment
  • Instrument adjustments

What Is The Effect Of Chiropractic Effect On The Nervous System?

When the spine is not correctly aligned, it puts pressure on the nervous system and which can be incredibly painful. When this pathway is blocked or obstructed, then the neurons cannot communicate with one another properly. This misalignment can cause many issues and health conditions, such as back hunching, limping, and irregular breathing. The chiropractor then takes an X-ray examination of the spine to see where the problem lies and uses various movements and motions to correct the spine. This may cause you to feel a sharp pain during the adjustment, but the pain will quickly subside, and as the trapped fluid and pressure exit the spine, you may feel better almost instantly. For some conditions, it may require multiple sessions before the patient can return to a normal lifestyle, but they may be able to see and talk about some improvements after the first session.

The Chiropractic Nervous System

The human body is comprised of two sets of nervous systems, that is, the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the central nervous system (CNS). The PNS is the intricate branches of nerve endings that are responsible for the sensation of touch, pain, hot, cold, and more. The CNS is the spinal cord, and it controls the function of organs and muscles along the spine. The spinal cord is the highway where information travels back and forth from and to the brain and that is why when the spinal cord is damaged, it often results in the paralysis of the person from the injured area down, as the neurons in the area can’t receive or send information to the brain. This broken pathway prevents the brain from commanding the body to move, resulting in paralysis.

Chiropractic plays a huge role in the balance of your nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system (known for rest & digest activities) and the sympathetic nervous system (for fight or flight activities) must work together and complement one another for your immune system to work correctly. If these nervous systems are not balanced, it can cause many types of adverse health conditions and diseases of which chiropractic can help.
