Since chiropractic treatment started in 1895, it has helped patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches. Right now, chiropractic treatment is at an all time high, with 20 million Americans going to seek chiropractic care this year.
Chiropractic care can treat a number of issues, including back pain, headaches, neck pain, arthritis, scoliosis, ear infections and blood pressure.
A study published in 2003 focused on the treatment of lower back and neck pain found that chiropractic adjustments resulted in a much faster healing time compared to physiotherapy and GP care. In addition, chiropractic treatment was one-third of the costs of both GP care and physiotherapy.
Chiropractic adjustment is an effective and popular form of back pain treatment in the USA with over 1 million performances every day. 35% of those that do visit are seeking relief from lower back pain that were from sports injuries, and/or muscle strains.
Chiropractic treatment locates where the pain is, to be known. Once adjustments have been made it allows an immediate pain relief to be felt, with many patients feeling instantly better, and essentially speeding up recovery time.
It is known that the use of chiropractic treatment can improve the immune system. Before the treatment takes place, there are subluxations that prevent your system from working properly, making you more vulnerable to illnesses. However, once taken place the subluxations are removed, allowing the immune system to work better.
