Chiropractic is thought of as a treatment for back and neck pain. However, chiropractic treatment is also very effective in the treatment of asthma, allergies, headaches, arthritis, fibromyalgia and much more! The vertebral column houses the spinal chord and its nerves, if any of the vertebra get out of their proper juxtaposition, inflammation, disc pressure and even disc herniation may occur. When this happens, there may be pressure being put on a spinal nerve. Spinal nerves innervate various organs of the body, i.e. heart, liver, lungs; and when there is pressure put on a spinal nerve, dysfunction occurs. Dysfunction leads to disease! Therefore it is very important to take good care of your spine by seeing a chiropractor. Dr. Eshanov, a chiropractor in Montclair NJ explains that there are several phases/types of chiroractic care: acute care, corrective care, maintenance care, and preventive care. Each aims to deliver a different but related effect. Here’s a simple explanation:
- Acute care: the goal is to primarily get the patient out of pain
- Corrective care: the goal is to correct the underlying cause of the pain
- Maintenance care: the goal of maintenance care is to stabilize the patient to maintain proper spinal alignment so as to avoid regressing
- Preventive care: this type of care is for people who experience no pain or health problems at all and just go for chiropractic treatment once or twice a year to prevent pain and to prevent health problems.
