At Dayton Chiropractic Center, Dr. Brian Briggs and staff stand ready to help residents in the surrounding area of Dayton, Ohio.
What is Chiropractic Care?
The system known as chiropractic was developed about 120 years ago. It is based on the concept that the alignment of the musculoskeletal system – especially the spine – affects overall health. Misalignments change the way the nerves, muscles and blood vessels function. In addition to causing pain, they can affect pulse, blood pressure, digestion and other aspects of your health. All chiropractic services are targeted toward restoring alignment and proper function of the body to improve your health. Chiropractic care is holistic, meaning the doctor takes your whole body and overall health into account when making an assessment or recommendations to improve your health.
Conditions a Chiropractor Can Treat
Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek chiropractic services. Many people today spend hours at a desk or in front of a computer. Even with perfect posture – and few people achieve that condition – you can be subject to neck or back strain or too repetitive motion injury. Headaches often plague people who work at a desk, especially if they tend to carry the head thrust forward. An automobile accident can cause whiplash. Running may cause tendinitis. All of these conditions respond to chiropractic care. Less common conditions like temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ) can also be treated with chiropractic adjustments.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Pain relief is probably the most important result of proper chiropractic care. When you have a misalignment of a joint or the spine, muscles shorten and become tense. A chiropractic adjustment corrects the problems and exercises help restore proper muscle tone and strength. A chiropractic adjustment can also restore full range of motion and eliminate other uncomfortable symptoms such as a fast pulse or high blood pressure. Chiropractors can also recommend lifestyle changes such as better nutrition or suggest supplements to correct nutritional imbalances. All of this care is non-invasive, drug-free and holistically oriented to promote your overall health. People of all ages, including children and adolescents, can benefit from chiropractic services.
