The Many Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Kirschner Chiropractic & Wellness Centre, located in Port Charlotte, Florida, offers a full spectrum of innovative chiropractic services.
The Root Meaning of "Chiropractic"
Chiropractic comes from a combination of Greek words, which formed the modern definition sometime in the late 19th century. Chiropractic is hands-on adjustment and manipulation of the spine. The history of chiropractic care began in 1895 when Daniel David Palmer adjusted a subluxated vertebrae in a partially deaf janitor and restored his hearing. By adjusting the spine and releasing pressure on nerves and organs, blood flow is restored and pain relieved. Throughout history, chiropractic medicine has evolved, expanded, and proven itself to be a legitimate, drug-free therapy with many uses.
Conditions That Improve With Chiropractic Care
Neck pain can also be relieved by spinal adjustments. An automobile accident can cause whiplash and headaches that are best treated by chiropractic adjustments. Sciatica, pain in one hip that radiates down the corresponding leg, is a common problem and is very responsive to chiropractic adjustments. Tension headaches and migraine headaches are the result of constricted vessels and decreased blood flow. An adjustment will open the vessel and allow full blood flow again. Work injuries can be debilitating and may require a combination of therapies to get back to normal work duties. Sports injuries can certainly cause pain and damage similar to those of an automobile accident. Chiropractic treatment and sports rehabilitation programs can get both amateur and professional athletes back in their games quicker. The combination of therapies used and recovery time will vary from person to person, but the chiropractor will discuss these with you.
