What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. At Denver Chiropractic, we strive to offer the best in care

There have been research studies showing the multitude of benefits of spinal manipulation for certain conditions, and along with the studies comes many opinions on why chiropractic therapy works. In one sense, it does not matter why it works, although knowing the exact mechanisms would help allow us to determine the best candidates for chiropractic adjustments.

The neurological wiring of the nervous system is affected by chiropractic adjustments due to the relationship of the wiring of the joint and the central nervous system. It is like a house on a circuit breaker. If all of your kitchen appliances are wired together, and when one overloads the system, the others in the system will fail as well. At our Denver CO chiropractic clinic, we will take the time to discuss your condition and answer any questions you may have.

This is a very simplistic analogy, and if you want to know more about the philosophy and what science has uncovered of the chiropractic adjustment, I would be happy to have a personal conversation with you at our Denver CO chiropractic clinic.

What is chiropractic?

As a Denver resident, you will notice a wide variety of health care practitioners from medical doctors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, physical therapist, osteopaths, and chiropractors. What makes the chiropractor unique is that we mainly treat the central nervous system via adjusting the spinal joints. The nervous system regulates all functions of your body. So, controlling the nervous system is one of the most profound treatments available.

As a Denver chiropractor, I realign the spinal joints and extremity joints and witness first hand the benefits of the manipulation procedure. Regardless of the philosophy, science, and rationale to a chiropractor’s decision to adjust the spine, the outcome is most often highly beneficial to the patient and with very low risk.

Some spinal related conditions benefit from routine chiropractic care. Sometimes our jobs or hobbies put to much postural stress on the back, leading to soreness, pain, or dysfunction. Spinal alignment takes upkeep, similar to all things, everything needs a certain amount of upkeep, or maintenance. A spinal “tune up” is just what the body needs from time to time. Read here about a study, “Maintenance Care for Chronic Low Back Pain“.
