A healthy spine is essential for good overall health. Health issues relating to poor spinal health are prevalent, yet most people are unaware of them. The spine is responsible for protecting the spinal cord and nerves as they exit the spine. The brain controls the functions of the body. It does this by sending electrical signals down the spinal cord and out to the organs of the body. Basically, the spinal cord is the avenue for all messaging to go from the brain to every body part. When there is abnormal spine alignment, or what chiropractors call subluxations of the spine, the spinal cord or nerves can become affected. This can then limit the effectiveness of the communication between the brain and the body. As a result, people can experience not only pain from spinal misalignment, but also, various health issues.
An accident or back injury, bad posture, or spinal curves that develop abnormally can all have a major impact on the spine, leading to misalignment, or subluxation. The goal of chiropractic care is to restore spinal alignment, correcting underlying subluxations with gentle adjustments of the spine combined with corrective exercises and spinal stretching, or traction. In that way, misaligned vertebrae can be returned to their normal position so pressure can be relieved on the nerves and tissues in the area.
The underlying cause of a person’s neck or back pain is usually due to abnormal pressure on the joints and potentially nerves. Abnormal alignment of the spine usually leads to pain in the back or neck. However, when the spine is out of alignment, it can show up as more than just back pain. Some of these other symptoms include:
- numbness and tingling in the hands/fingers or feet/toes
- weakness of muscles
- loss of balance
- headaches or migraines
We recommend contacting your Bend chiropractor at Elevation Spine Center if you’re experiencing persistent pain in some area of your body. If you feel pain in parts of the body such as the neck, shoulders, or back we will work to identify the underlying cause of whatever issue you have. Once we know the underlying cause of your problem, we’ll be able to work with you to formulate a program of treatment customized to your specific circumstances. Treatment will be non-invasive, using no medications or painkillers, but encouraging the body to use its self-healing powers to produce relief.
What is involved with chiropractic care?
We find the cause of your symptoms
Our chiropractic clinic has a team of licensed professionals skilled in all the most advanced techniques for rehabilitation. They will be able to identify the underlying source of your pain and discomfort. Rather than simply masking your symptoms with medications, we’ll go straight to the heart of the issue and correct the actual problem causing your symptoms.
One of the treatment approaches used by our staff will be chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments will relieve spinal pressure on nerves as it resets your spinal vertebrae to the proper position. We might also use spinal mirror-image exercises to provide additional support to the muscles around the spinal column. These exercises will also contribute to better posture and provide you with better mobility.
In some cases, we’ll also use spinal traction to stretch out ligaments which have become contracted. This will help reposition spinal vertebrae into a better posture. Massage therapy is another technique that works very well with corrective chiropractic to help relax muscles that have become inflamed. It allows the body to restore muscular functionality.
