OMAHA CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Back pain may be the most common reason patients seek the expertise of a chiropractor, but chiropractic techniques accomplish far more. They help patients with acute or chronic issues, including headaches, neck pain, sciatica and improper function of the nervous system that may result from car accidents, sports injuries, heredity and other causes. Because chiropractic healthcare is holistic care, patients look to chiropractors for general wellness, too. In fact, preventive healthcare is among the fastest growing areas of chiropractic care.
Before we can treat you, we must first evaluate what treatment you will need. After a series of questions about your pain, the chiropractor will perform several tests involving reflexes, flexion, posture, and sometimes, x-ray or MRI.
Our main job is to make adjustments in your spine. Depending on the injury or ailment, these adjustments can help improve range of motion, flexibility, comfort, and overall wellness.
The wellness approach is to look for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function.
The main difference between wellness care and standard medical care is that wellness care seeks to turn on natural healing ability. Wellness care does not add something to the system, instead it removes anything that might interfere with normal function. Wellness care trusts that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it.
In today’s medical age, what does it truly mean to “be well”? Many doctors passionately debate the advantages of wellness care versus standard medicine; the main difference being that the goal of wellness care is to incite the body’s natural healing ability, while standard medical care treats an ailment by the addition of something from the outside – antibiotics, surgeries, etc. While each approach has their rightful place within the medical arena, we believe that when the body is working properly, it tends to heal more effectively and be more resistant to illness.
