Corrective chiropractic care is a treatment that utilizes spinal adjustments and therapeutic exercises in order to do several things to the body:
- Make structural changes (i.e. bone spurs)
- Restore balance in muscles
- Motion improvement
- Change posture
- Disc health improvement
- Abnormal changes in the bones
This type of corrective care has proven to be effective in treating many chronic health conditions. Patients should be aware that it may take several corrective care treatments from their chiropractor before healing becomes noticeable. That means you may need to schedule several corrective chiropractic care treatments a week so you can experience symptom relief.
Why Does It Take So Long To Get Symptom Relief From Chiropractic Corrective Care?
Unlike traditional medical procedures and treatments, chiropractors provide natural and alternative healing therapies. This care allows the body to heal on its own. However, chiropractors also realize that their patients live in the real world, and after treatment appointments, daily routines can place the body in a temporary state of regression.
The human body is a dynamic machine that is very fluid. It can change and reshape itself regularly due to external stress and forces. Fortunately, corrective chiropractic care is effective because it compliments this type of normal function in the body.
Who Can Benefit From Corrective Care?
There are some patients who do not need this type of care. Some patients experience symptom relief by following a treatment plan of exercise and chiropractic adjustments. These patients will not need corrective changes of their spines.
However, there are some patients who have health conditions that will need to be addressed with corrective care. Some of these conditions are:
- Tendon ossification
- Disc degeneration
- Disc bulging
- Boney changes
When there is physical stress on the body, the body responds with more than just pain. A patient may also experience other symptoms as well such as allergies, asthma, insomnia and fatigue. This type of treatment is unique in that it has been successful for many patients with multiple health issues.
Corrective chiropractic care is so much more than simply a treatment for pain relief. A customized treatment plan that is flexible will be in a patient’s best interest to ensure their body can begin the healing process, and regain functionality and health.
