Chiropractic Care Treats The Cause
of Nerves travel throughout the human frame to control the function and
physiology of your body. Spinal joints that are out of alignment or not
moving properly can affect your health by irritating delicate spinal
nerves. When irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is
wrong. Symptoms, including pain, are usually the result. Nerve signals
are also sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area. You
may feel stiff, sore, and tired. As opposed to taking pain masking
drugs, which can be dangerous to your health, Chiropractic care seeks
to locate the source of your symptoms and address the underlying cause,
so the problem doesnt keep recurring.
Your chiropractic doctor will consult with you about your health and
perform a complete examination to identify your problem areas. Youll
be given a report of the doctors findings and an opportunity to have
all of your questions answered. Chiropractic adjusting with the Impulse
Adjusting Instrument® aims to restore your bodys balance and function
to correct the underlying cause of your symptoms with treatments that
are as painless as possible. Getting you back to feeling yourself again
quickly and effectively are our primary goals.
What does it feel like?
Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® feel
like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In
most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many
patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a
sense of well-being or a soothing calm feeling. Of course, results vary
from case to case and chronic conditions, inflammation or muscle spasms
may delay these positive effects.
