Chiropractic is a unique profession because chiropractors focus on locating, analyzing, and correcting vertebral subluxations. Vertebral subluxations are subtle misalignments of the spine that can interfere with the proper function of the nervous system. We work hard and we play hard, so it is not surprising at all that the spine starts to show wear and tear.
Sometimes when we stretch we can feel bones of our spine moving around. At times, two or more vertebra may become fixated or "stuck" and we might begin to see a limitation in our range of motion and flexibility. Sometimes it is painful while at other times we may start to hear and feel a great deal of movement in the spine above and below these fixations. Changes in the joint begin to appear at these places in the spine. It then becomes important to visit with a chiropractor in an effort to keep the joints from deterioration and to keep the nervous system functioning at its best. Other times, we find we have headaches or back pain and visiting a chiropractor can be helpful in determining if the source of this pain is due to the misalignments of the spine or surrounding structures.
I consider chiropractic to be part of a healthy lifestyle. We put our seatbelts on to keep us from injury, but very often do not give our spines the personalized attention that is needed for optimum health. Why is this? We are going to have our spines our entire life, and we should not neglect caring for any part of our bodies if we want to remain healthy.
People ask how long it will take before they see an improvement in their health, and how long do they have to keep coming. This answer depends entirely on the individual. If you started a new diet today or a new workout program, how long would you expect it to take to see a benefit? And if you were to stop eating healthy or stopped being active, how long do you think the benefits would last? There are no hard and fast rules. Obviously a construction worker would have a different set of spinal issues than a teacher or office worker-very individual. But without chiropractic, your spine may become more prone to arthritic changes. At this office you will sit down with Dr. D'Oria and discuss a plan of care and course of your treatment. You are always free to ask questions.
When the spine becomes subluxated, the ligaments become stretched and weak. It takes time before they heal, and the muscles to get stronger and hold the vertebra in place. It may take a few days for the inflammation to fully go away. But in the long run, you are healthier for the periodic checkups.
If you find you have stressed your spine and have a problem, come let a professional check it out. That's what we are here for!
