If you're concerned that modern medicine is dominated by invasive surgical techniques and potentially addictive medications, rest assured that your own well-being doesn't have to depend on such extreme measures. Here at Lodes Chiropractic Center, either Wilmington chiropractor on our team (Dr. Lodes or Dr. Wharton) can use the principles of chiropractic spinal adjustment to provide natural pain relief in Wilmington while also helping you and your loved ones remain in peak health at all times.
To understand how chiropractic care can do so much for your health, it helps to understand how the body's functions can be imperiled by a problem called subluxation. This subtle dislocation of the spinal (and sometimes other) joints can occur for all sorts of reasons, from longstanding postural problems and degenerative spinal conditions to violent situations such as car accident injuries or sports injuries. The results include pain and stiffness in the joints. Severe alignment problems can affect your stance and gait, creating muscle strain. Bulging or herniated discs associated with spinal problems can pinch nerve tissue, interfering your body's internal communications system and causing a cascade of health problems.
Chiropractic care can resolve or manage these issues through spinal adjustment. Your Wilmington chiropractor will first perform a series of diagnostics to determine exactly which joints need to be adjusted. We then administer high-velocity, low-amplitude force to the joints to bring them back into line so they can function correctly again. Although the term "chiropractic" means "done by hand," we can also perform instrument-based adjustments using technologies such as the ProAdjuster method (which delivers adjustments so quickly that the muscles have no time to react against them by tightening up).
Chiropractic care can relieve many different kinds of symptoms -- not by merely muting them as pharmaceuticals often do, but by correcting the underlying problems that are producing the symptoms. In addition to normalizing joint motion, spinal adjustments can also help bring herniated or bulging discs back into their proper position and away from sensitive nerve tissue. A realigned spine is also capable of maintaining a straighter posture, reducing musculoskeletal stresses. These changes can relieve neck pain, back pain, headaches, hip pain, knee pain, foot pain, and neuropathy in the extremities caused by pinched nerves.
Your chiropractor in Wilmington can go beyond treatment of painful problems to provide preventative wellness care for your entire family. Periodic chiropractic "checkups" and adjustments can keep your nervous system operating at peak efficiency, which in turn optimizes everything from digestive function to immune response.
