We Fix More Than Your Back: Las Vegas Chiropractor
Chiropractic care for back and neck pain is well-accepted. Chiropractic is even recommended for the care of acute low back pain by the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, and the American Geriatric Society Panel Guidelines for the Management of Chronic Pain.
But what about its application to non-musculoskeletal conditions? Are there benefit for patients with illnesses such as asthma, vertigo, and colic?
That is what a group of researchers attempted to find out in 2007, by conducting a review of 179 papers addressing 50 different non-musculoskeletal conditions.
Their conclusion: “Evidence from controlled studies and usual practice supports chiropractic care… as providing benefit to patients with asthma, cervicogenic vertigo, and infantile colic. Evidence was promising for potential benefit of manual procedures for children with otitis media and elderly patients with pneumonia.
What’s the chiropractic connection to diseases such as asthma and infantile colic? The principle behind chiropractic is that the nervous system controls every function of the human body. The nervous system carries messages from the brain down the spinal cord and out to every organ and limb in our body.
At least, that’s what happens when the nervous system is operating the way it should. But spinal misalignments – vertebrae that are shifted out of position – put pressure on the delicate nerves in the spinal column, interfering with the body’s communications process.
Spinal misalignments can occur in many ways. They can be a result of poor posture, auto accidents, slips and falls, sports injuries or birth trauma. Even bending down to tie your shoelace can cause a misalignment.
Fortunately, chiropractors trained in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) can rehabilitate and realign your spine back to health. CBP, the most researched and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique, is a drug-free, noninvasive alternative to standard medical intervention.
