Problems with the neck, shoulder and arm are often called different things by patients: neuritis; bursitis; neuralgia; arthritis; frozen shoulder; sprained, strained or sore muscles or "poor circulation".
Do you have leg, knee, buttock, hip or low back weakness or pain? Many people suffering from these disorders have turned to chiropractic. Chiropractic is a health care system whose goal is to unleash your natural healing ability by correcting the vertebral subluxation complex. This common condition jams or locks your spinal joints, irritates, stretches or compresses ("pinches") your nerves, unbalances your posture, weakens your discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles, and interferes with your quality of life. As terrible as this condition sounds, it is often initially painless.
As a general rule, it is wise to explore drugless, non-surgical methods of healing first. Many people go to chiropractors after they've gone through the medical runaround and are fed up and tired with the drugs they've been taking. Too often drugs only give you a temporary relief of symptoms - after they've worn off the problems come back. In an emergency, however, it is sometimes necessary to use drugs and even surgery, but one must be prudent about such extreme therapies.
Chiropractic is devoted to correcting abnormal spinal structural conditions called vertebral subluxations. These cause abnormal spine and joint motion and nervous system stress. The nervous system is what coordinates and organizes your body, and when it is functioning without subluxations you are more whole.
