Chiropractic Improves Chronic Pain
There is a reason an estimated 27 million people see a chiropractor every year. CHIROPRACTIC WORKS! Chiropractic offers a drug-free, conservative option to ⬆️increase function and ⬇️decrease pain!!
Chiropractic works to improve joint range of motion, muscle activation, and modulates nervous system activity related to pain and proprioception. This combined with soft tissue therapy and exercise is an important way to reinforce and initiate functional movement patterns. As our understanding of the body exapands, research continually pours in showing chiropractic can have huge positive impact on the body. The study below explains one of the many possible mechanisms in which chiropractic works.
"The observations in 6 subjects revealed that 12 weeks of chiropractic care improved suppression of SEPs evoked by dual upper limb nerve stimulation at the level of the motor cortex, premotor areas, and/or subcortical areas such as basal ganglia and/or thalamus. It is possible that these findings explain one of the mechanisms by which chiropractic care improves function and reduces pain for chronic pain patients." - Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics📄
