Chiropractic treatments are considered a complimentary medical practice. But there are many who find the treatments provided by chiropractors very beneficial and use regular treatments to help maintain their wellbeing and health. Back In Form is a chiropractic clinic located in Dorset where you can receive a range of complimentary treatments including chiropractic adjustments.
The purpose of chiropractic treatments is to help with problems with the musculoskeletal system, focusing primarily on the spine. Chiropractic is a hands-on therapy where pressure is applied to the body to align it in a balanced way. The chiropractic treatment that you can receive from Back In Form Dorset is rooted in this practice.
The pain relief comes from the adjustment being made to areas of the body causing inflammation and pressure that results in the back being tender. The relief of a balanced alignment of the skeletal system can help reduce inflammation and stress that joints, tendons and other parts of the musculoskeletal system are under.
The chiropractic manipulation can also produce a ‘cracking’ sound that can be quite loud. This is not the joint or bone cracking. This sound is sometimes produced by gas escaping during the adjustment. This process can be relaxing and create a pleasant feeling in the body, while not a permanent solution to pain the temporary feeling can be complimentary way to manage pain.
The chiropractic adjustments you can receive at Back In Form in Dorset can also improve your range of movement. Stiff joints are frustrating and can hinder daily activities. Getting chiropractic treatments can identify the reason for stiffness and increase flexibility. The chiropractor will asses you during your treatment session and then recommend solutions to avoid a reoccurring problem if appropriate.
Your chiropractor will tailor their treatment to your individual requirements. If adjustment of the joint and other affected areas is appropriate the chiropractor will manipulate the joint into alignment which can help reduce inflammation and improve the range of movement. The chiropractic session may also include further advice regarding diet and exercise that can benefit you.
Chest pain can often go ignored relative to other pain such as lower back tenderness. Chiropractic treatments is a holistic approach and will assess any chest pain you may be experiencing. The chest pain may not necessarily be caused by your chest but another part of the body. A chiropractor uses their knowledge of the muscular skeletal system to evaluate your body’s pain and movement. This helps to locate the source of the pain you are experiencing which can then be treated with a chiropractic adjustments and other dietary and lifestyle advice from the chiropractor.
As pregnancy progresses the body’s centre of gravity changes constantly. This can add further imbalance and pressure to the body and cause pain and distress to the mother. Chiropractic treatment can be an effective therapy to help rebalance the body and bring relief to any pain. Regular visits to your local chiropractor while going through pregnancy can help establish and maintain pelvic balance. This helps to provide the baby with as much possible space during the pregnancy. Balance in the body during pregnancy can be beneficial for the mother as the more space the baby has the less likely the infant is to find a position that is painful for the mother. Giving the baby more room to manoeuvre can also facilitate its ability to move into better positions.
