There is no doubt, that life in the 21st Century is anything but simple. With work deadlines, family obligations and time constraints increasing, many people simply don’t take the time to take care of themselves. However, remarkable advancements in Chiropractic techniques and therapies, has make addressing issues that cause pain more effective with a minimal amount of time and expense. Now more than ever, there is no reason anyone should live in pain.
The spine might simply seem like a collection of bones but it’s much more than that. It is an imperative part of the complicated system which allows for fluid motion in everyday activities. This includes basic movements such as lifting, rotating and bending.
If the spine is not in the correct position, the misaligned segment causes pain by putting pressure on nerves and over time, may become chronic. This results in very limited range of motion, deterioration of the joints and of course pain. Dr. Hendon uses several different light force chiropractic techniques and instruments to adjust the spine without the typical snap, crack & pop of conventional adjustments. Using his specialized combination of treatment methods, Dr. Hendon’s patients get relief without the excessive use of pressure to save time.
Another point and reason to use light force chiropractic is the minimal pressure and stress on your spine both short and long term. The musculoskeletal system is a major function of the spine, but it is certainly not the only one. Protecting our Spinal Cord is no small task. The spine houses the nervous system which is our wiring that controls every move we make, both voluntary & involuntary. It is imperative to our mobility and quality of life that our spine stays intact & protected. Collectively, pressure of any kind may cause future problems that everyone should minimize whenever possible.
Proper spinal alignment effects numerous conditions and issues usually not associated with Chiropractic Care. These includes:
- Migraines/Head aches
- Sinus / Allergy Problems
- Carpal tunnel Syndrome
- Knee & Ankles
- Sleep Problems
Many Studies show that other vital statistics such as high blood pressure can be improved by correcting misalignments. This is not to say it is the cure for high blood pressure or heart disease, but these studies provides us with new examples of the many benefits to having a healthy spine. Proper nerve supply improves all body function & processes which ultimately provides for every fiber of our being. It is like proper nutrition, essential for life.
The reason that these problems can be diagnosed and treated by a Chiropractor is the same reason that it’s so effective with neck and back issues. It is all neurology. When one or more vertebra in the back are out of alignment, it puts pressure on the nerves which causes pain or problems throughout the body. When this occurs it’s called subluxation. A Chiropractor treats this by adjusting the vertebra into alignment. This takes the pressure off the nerve which relieves pain and successfully repairs the subluxation.
Having a healthy spine greatly improves your overall health and wellness. Dr. Hendon is very sincere, friendly and is dedicated to providing his patients with honest treatment advise to get you healthy and back on your feet as soon as possible.
