Your brain controls the movement and health of your entire body and when the messages are not able to get where they need to go, problems arise. Chiropractic adjustments are all about realigning the spine so that the information highway between the brain and everywhere else is clear. How this treatment is applied differs from one patient to another. It can be very gentle, or it can be vigorous. Dr. Sheridan will personalize your treatment for you and your body. Even when similar conditions are being treated, the treatment is designed for each individual.
The importance of the spine to the body can not be overemphasized. It supports the body, but it also holds the nerves that provide sensations everywhere. It takes a lot of abuse in life and can begin to show the signs of wear and tear. The 24 vertebrae are separated by 23 discs that provide a cushion, and they can degenerate and start to bulge or to herniate. When this happens, pain is often the result. Spinal decompression allows your doctor to stretch the spine to separate the vertebrae enough to create suction that pulls the discs back into their place between the bones. It relieves pressure on the nerves and also pain.
Massage therapy complements chiropractic care. When muscles, tendons, and ligaments are stiff and tense, other therapies don’t work as well as they could. With the addition of massage therapy, recovery time can be greatly improved and the patient benefits from the relaxation that it brings to the body and mind. Massage therapy prepares the soft tissue for the joint and spine manipulation that the chiropractor provides.
Therapeutic exercise is targeted at the specific area that is being treated. You will be taught to do the exercise, and you will then be able to continue your recovery at home between visits for chiropractic care. These exercises will help you to regain flexibility and strength after an injury.
