Chiropractic care is one of the options you should consider to treat back pain and other types of pain in the neck, legs, and arms due to various causes like muscle strains, accidents, and sports injuries. Around 22 million Americans visit chiropractors every year, and 35 percent (7.7 million) of these people do so for back pain relief. Chiropractors use their hands to manipulate the spine and to provide other treatments that can restore the alignment of your body’s musculoskeletal structure.
Chiropractic medicine is based on the theory that the spine is the key that will allow the body to heal itself without medication or surgery. Manipulation restores mobility to the joints that may have been restricted by injuries to the tissue due to a traumatic event, like repetitive stress and falling. This way, a chiropractor may help treat the symptoms associated with pain in the joints, bone, muscles, and connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Sometimes, a chiropractor may use conventional medical treatment with chiropractic care to enhance the results.
