Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach. Our doctors are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the you are even aware they exist.
What Can a Chiropractor Help With?
Have you ever wondered what a Minneapolis chiropractor can help with? This is a very popular question. Everyone thinks of a chiropractic doctor when they have back or neck pain, but not many people think of them when they are suffering from allergies, disc problems, headaches or fibromyalgia.
Unlike an anti-histamine, chiropractic care gives the body strength to fight allergies. An allergy occurs when the body detects foreign substances and perceives it as harmful such as dust, pollen, animal dander, etc. Your immune system reacts to these foreign substances by causing sneezing, congestion, rashes, hives and coughing with the goal of expelling them from the body. In severe cases, an allergen can cause seizures or even anaphylactic shock. This occurs due to histamines created by the immune system in an effort to protect your body.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Care Help?
So what conditions can chiropractic care help? Well, your spine is what protects your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is how your body communicates between the brain and every system. If there is a vertebra that is misaligned, it may be impinging on a nerve. This is important because it is being found that the nervous system plays a key role in how your immune system functions. Therefore, if your nervous system is being compromised, your immune system may be compromised and malfunctioning. A chiropractor is a specially trained doctor that treats and protects the nervous system by relieving pressure off of the nerves. By doing this, you are allowing your body to function at its max potential and not overreact to allergens, fight infections quicker as well as decrease to likelihood of contracting illness such as colds and flus.
There is marshmallow like pads between your vertebrae called intervertebral discs. These discs house nerves inside a jelly like solution, surrounded by a cartilage. They are very important for numerous reasons. These discs proved movement in the spine. When these discs start to degenerate, a spine will become less mobile and may start fuse together. Intervertebral discs are also creating space between the vertebrae. This is important because nerves pass through these spaces and if the space becomes compromised then the nerve may be pinched or killed off. They also act as a shock absorber. When movement occurs, the jelly solution gives the disc the ability to expand and compress. If a spine become misaligned, a disc can become herniated, bulged, slipped, or if it’s bad enough it might even rupture. A misalignment is not the only cause for these conditions. Age can cause the disc to become weak and dehydrate. Not only will these conditions put pressure on the nerves, it will also cause pain.
