October is National Spinal Health Month

A Good Reason to Visit A Chiropractor

unnamed

A healthy spine is more than the basis of good posture—it is a harbinger of sound emotional and physical health, according to practitioners of holistic chiropractic care. Those seeking relief from back pain and other common spine-related conditions might do well to exchange pain-masking drugs for more lasting relief from professional adjustments.

All chiropractic can be considered alternative medicine, because practitioners do not prescribe drugs or surgery. Instead, these doctors rely on manual therapies such as spinal manipulation to improve function and provide pain relief for conditions ranging from simple sprains and strains to herniated discs and sciatica. Yet, holistic chiropractors go beyond treatment of structural problems, like a misaligned spine, to address root causes.

Dr. Mark Vardy, a North Carolina chiropractor who has been practicing holistic methods for over 15 years, points out that, “Basic spinal manipulation is on a piece of the mind-body connection. As a holistic chiropractor specializing in sports and musculoskeletal injuries you have to recognize that symptoms are the body’s way of adapting to some environmental stressor. In order to maximize your health you have to maximize your bodies ability to deal with daily stressors. This involves physical things like joint function, spinal alignment, flexibility and muscle strength and function.  It also includes chemical things like nutritional supplements, diet and hydration. In our office we combine holistic treatments to remove the damage of stressors and improve the bodies ability to heal.

Today, chiropractors use traditional chiropractic manipulation techniques as well as instrument adjustment tools, myofascial release(soft tissue work), physical therapy modalities, functions exercise and stretches, cold laser, nutrition and some even do acupuncture.  This makes them leaders in the use of conservative treatments for non-surgical musculoskeletal injuries and leaders for providing optimal care for maximizing your ability to be HEALTHY!”
