Expectations vs. Reality - What To Expect After Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care continues to be an enigma.

There are many misconceptions out there when it comes to what benefits you'll receive after you visit the chiropractor.

Some people think it's dangerous. Some people think it's a holistic medicine that doesn't really work.

And others expect miracles to happen during their first visit.

The truth lies somewhere in between.

Chiropractic care is real, and it works. Sometimes it's painful; sometimes it's not.

While you most likely won't think a miracle has happened the first time you leave the office, over time you are likely to experience significant benefits from your care.

There is science that backs chiropractic care (pun intended :)), and your doctor of chiropractic is very well educated.

Do Manual Chiropractic Adjustments and Therapies for Neck Pain Help?

Neck pain can be extremely debilitating.

It can keep you from completing even the most routine tasks around the house.

Washing the dishes, cooking dinner, and playing with your kids can be unbearable.

If you suffer from neck pain, or if you ever have, I'm sure you were desperate for relief.

Then you go to your primary care doctor. They'll give you tips and advice, and then send you home with more painkillers.

Again, painkillers only treat symptoms. They don't do anything to address the underlying issue.

So what are we to do? Short of surgery and physical therapy, are there any options?

Or do we wait patiently for the pain to go away?

Luckily, there is another option.

Common Symptoms Caused by Injuries to the Lumbar Spine

The last part of this three-piece series is about the final section of the spine, the lumbar region.

This section of the spine is located below the cervical and thoracic sections, and is made up of five vertebrae known as the L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5.

Injuries and subluxations to the lumbar spine can be severe but are not typically life-threatening.

Early treatment is important to the prognosis of lumber spine injuries because these five vertebrae contain precious nerves and spinal cord tissue that control communication between the brain and the legs.

Therefore, damage to the lumbar spine subsequently has the largest effects on the hips, groin, and lower abdominal muscles.
