Chiropractors in America train for years to better understand how to diagnose and treat neurological disorders
Neurological disorders are typically addressed with powerful drugs which can have powerful and sometimes debilitating side effects on both the mind and the body. That is why prescription medications should always be a treatment of last resort.
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective alternative to the traditional methods that are typically employed for treating the symptoms related to a variety of neurological disorders that have dramatically impacted so many lives.
At Light Chiropractic, we offer patients a viable option for embracing natural remedies for common neurological disorders. Chiropractic treatments can pinpoint the source of neurological trauma due to a shift in the bones of your body. When the bones are out of alignment, the nerves can become compressed or squeezed in a way that interrupts the proper functionality of communication between the brain and your body.
Chiropractic Care for Common Neurological Disorders
The following conditions and disorders can be addressed through chiropractic care.
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Facial Nerve Neuropathy
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erbs Palsy
- Motor Neurone Disease
- Bells Palsy
- Chronic Fainting
The nervous system is a complex network of communication routes that carry commands from the brain to the various parts of the body. Even the slightest fluctuation in the nervous system can result in pain or discomfort of some kind. A healthy nervous system supports proper functionality throughout the body and its many internal systems.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Neurological Disorders
The nerves of the spine are tasked with allowing uninterrupted communication between the brain and all of the parts of the body. The spine helps to safeguard the well-being of the nerves, so if something is out of alignment in the spine, the nerves can become affected as a result. This can put undue pressure or stress on the nerves and interfere with communication between the brain and your body.
If the spine is shifted out of position, a subluxation occurs which can cause pain or discomfort in the areas where the nerves are affected by that misalignment. When the subluxation is allowed to remain, the pain or discomfort can become chronic and excruciating. Pain medications may help for a short period of time until the effects wear off and more drugs are needed to feel comfort once again. But these medications are only masking the problem by temporarily relieving the symptoms.
Chiropractic care can relieve the symptoms by targeting the source of the pain and discomfort. A trained chiropractor can help by diagnosing the cause and applying the necessary physical adjustments and manipulations to the spine where relief is needed most. These can help to reduce the pressure on the nerves by shifting the bones of your spine back into place, where they can be in proper alignment and your body can regain normal functionality without any feelings of pain or discomfort.
Once we remove the subluxations that are plaguing your nervous system, the body can begin the process of healing itself. You will no longer need those powerful prescription medications and you can start to reclaim the life you want to live.
