Living Well 4 Life Center - Hillsborough Township
Many people believe that chiropractic care is only for back pain and injury, but this is far from the case. Chiropractic treatment can have a variety of positive benefits for a wide range of physical ailments and conditions, from chronic pain to general discomfort. Many patients who come to us simply want help to relax their muscles and restore balance to their bodies due to the impacts and strains of everyday life.
By properly aligning the spine, the human body can meet the high levels of activity that our busy lives require and can work to properly self-heal through alignment.
A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Chiropractic Scientifically Explained
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the downregulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
Chiropractic Care and Your Health
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A chiropractor will diagnose, as well as help prevent, injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles, and bones.
While we will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs.
As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Living Well 4 Life Center - Hillsborough Township receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patient’s condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created.
Our Clinic's Approach To Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is also one of the few health care choices that view the body as a whole. This is important considering that every single system in your body is dependent on the next to function properly. To take this holistic approach, these practitioners consider all variables including; your personal history, genetic makeup, occupational, nutritional, and social factors. All of these factors play a role in the expression of health and disease.
Where traditional medicine has focused on the condition, functional medicine is aimed at treating the individual. By doing so, these health care providers can focus on individualizing nutritional, supplementation, and exercise plans as a means to address a person’s health status.
Do You Have Signs of Neuropathy
Neuropathy is also known as peripheral neuropathy because of its effect on the body’s sensory and motor nerves. It is very common for patients to experience the first symptoms in their extremities (hands, arms, legs, and feet). When this occurs it is referred to as Sensorimotor Polyneuropathy.
It’s important to see a doctor if you are experiencing any abnormal pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms, legs, wrists, ankles, hands, or feet. When a condition such as this is diagnosed early, you can control the condition and potentially prevent more damage.
