Chiropractic therapy: More to it that you think
Chiropractic Therapy Evolution
A lot has changed in chiropractic therapy since it’s beginning in 1895. Many of the conditions that responded well to chiropractic that could not be explained in the early years, through modern research we are now able to understand why the condition reacted favorably to treatment. As advances continue, chiropractic therapy and treatment continue to change and improve. Depending on the chiropractor you go to, you make get a lot more than just the” snap, crackle pop” that has long been associated with chiropractors in the past.

Disc Decompression is another of the therapies that we offer for people who have herniated discs, bulged discs or disc degeneration. This therapy has many studies to back up its effectiveness for both low back and neck disc pain.
Chiropractic and injections?
Yes, chiropractic now has some very good options to help with different types of pain syndromes. Injections. We do not inject cortisone or other steroids, but we do have natural anti-inflammatories and natural tissue relaxants that can aid in pain relief without having the side effects of other steroid injections you may be used to. These injections are pharmaceutical grade natural botanical substances that help your body to remove and reduce inflammation and relaxed tissue. This is shown to be clinically effective for rotator cuff tendinitis, tendinitis around the knee, ankle and wrist. These injections have also shown to be helpful for tension headache and muscle pain at the base of the skull was given as trigger point injections in the area. This is a great therapy to try before moving on to steroid injections.
