HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC HELP?
When there is an injury to the spine from either major traumas, such as whiplash-type injuries, or from the minor traumas of day-to-day life, it is the tissues in and around the joints of the spine and body that are torn. Chiropractors find the areas of the spine and body that have increased stiffness and are less elastic. The Chiropractor identifies these areas as joints that have been injured and have lost their mobility due to the stiffer scar tissue that has formed in the joint. This prevents the joint from working properly. Chiropractors attempt to gently move those scarred tissues using a technique called an adjustment in an effort to help the scarred tissues remodel better. Without motion the tissues will not remodel properly. The goal is to get the best healing possible.
