Among people seeking back pain relief alternatives, most choose chiropractic treatment. About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually. Of these, 7.7 million, or 35%, are seeking relief from back pain from various causes, including accidents, sports injuries, and muscle strains. Other complaints include pain in the neck, arms, and legs, and headaches.
Chiropractors are becoming increasingly consulted for health problems beyond neck and back pain. As a safe, conservative approach, chiropractic is a natural solution that relies on your body’s ability to heal itself—if there isn’t any interference. Chiropractors help to remove that interference, so you can regain your health! Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is generally considered a safe, effective treatment for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or getting tackled. Research has also shown chiropractic to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. In addition, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.

Busy parents, athletes, weekend warriors, golfers, runners-really anyone can benefit a great deal from routine chiropractic care. Regular chiropractic visits may help maintain bodies at the high level of activity to which they have become accustomed and even aid in function allowing the body to self-heal when proper alignment is achieved and maintained. Additionally, injuries are less likely to be serious and can heal at a significantly faster rate in those who receive regular chiropractic care, especially when combined with other healthy activities such as regular exercise and eating a nutritious diet.
Chiropractic Care & Your Nervous System
Your nervous system is perhaps the biggest key to your body’s health and well-being. Chiropractic care corrects misalignments (subluxations) in your spinal system, helping to optimize and restore proper nervous system function. Your brain and spine control and coordinate the function of all the tissues, organs and systems in your body. A healthy nervous system is the first component to health, and it’s crucial to your body’s well-being.
The Six Components to Health
1. Healthy Nervous System
2. Proper Nutrition
4. Prayer and/or Meditation
Without each of these six components, your health is likely to suffer and you’ll be more susceptible to disease and injury. To remain healthy, it’s important to have a fully functioning nervous system (optimized through chiropractic care), proper nutrition, exercise, prayer and/or meditation, sufficient rest, and periodic detoxification.
