Chiropractic Care and How it Helps With Back Pain & Neck Pain
Chiropractic care is a form of health care that involves spinal adjustments to the vertebrae and to other joints in the body. The theory behind chiropractic care is that the body functions at its best when the vertebrae and joints are in alignment, allowing the nervous system to function as it should. The back, as well as the neck, hips, knees, ankles, and wrists, can become misaligned as a result of an injury, such as a car accident injury, or as a result of poor body mechanics, such as a leg length discrepancy.
Chiropractic care allows the most complete flow of energy through the body by aligning the spine. Often, injuries are caused by imbalances in the muscles or joints. Adjustments line up bones and joints the way they are supposed to be. If you suffer from back pain, neck pain, or fibromyalgia, call your Greensboro chiropractor today.
Chiropractic adjustments might feel a bit strange at first, but they are not painful. You might hear a cracking noise during some adjustments, or you might not. If you don't hear a crack after an adjustment, it does not mean that the adjustment was not successful. Often, the misalignment of vertebrae or joints is accompanied by muscle tightness or spasm. In these cases, massage therapy can be especially helpful to complement the work of your chiropractor.
Most people begin having adjustments because of an acute injury or chronic pain. But our patients realize that regular chiropractic care helps them feel their best even after their injury or pain has improved. Just as you take your car in for regular servicing, think of adjustments as a tune-up for your body.

In addition, visiting a chiropractor can help with pain management and discomfort after a car accident. A car accident can leave you with neck pain, back pain, headaches, or joint injuries, depending on the severity of the accident. Remember that even a minor car accident can result in discomfort. If you suffer from a car accident injury, it's smart to visit your chiropractor as soon as possible. A combination of adjustments, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and massage therapy can be effective to restore alignment.
A chiropractor can provide pain management for fibromyalgia as well. Fibromyalgia is a notoriously difficult condition to treat, but often a combination of adjustments and other treatments, such as massage therapy, can help relieve stubborn symptoms.
