Chiropractors do a lot more than just crack backs, stretch or strengthen weak muscles after an injury or surgery. They are skilled at evaluating and diagnosing potential problems before they lead to more-serious injuries or disabling conditions from carpal tunnel syndrome or a frozen shoulder to chronic headaches or lower-back. Routine adjustments are a key aspect in keeping your body on point and pain free.
Customized Chiropractic therapy may be a useful way to ease low back pain, which affects an estimated 31 million Americans a new study says. Researchers observed that ‘many patients with low-back disorders persisting beyond 6 weeks do not recover.’ This is a reason why leaving untreated back pain is not an option. A combination of chiropractic therapy, exercise, stretching, mobility, and nutrition play a huge role in easing spinal pain long-term.
