Doctors of Chiropractic—often referred to as chiropractors—specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Chiropractors have a broad diagnostic skill set and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
It’s not an accident that there’s a chiropractor on every professional sports team. When your livelihood is dependent on keeping your body in line, chiropractic care is a priority. And the truth is all of our livelihoods are dependent on keeping our bodies healthy.
Throwing Our Biomechanics Off Track
In a nutshell, biomechanics describe how living things move. We mess with our biomechanics when we either don’t prepare our bodies for all the tasks we ask them to perform or forget to help them relax properly after a physically trying experience. Sometimes issues arise because you didn’t stretch properly after a long run. Sometimes your joints are restricted by long hours at a desk. Your body could be dealing with multiple issues at the same time. Chiropractic medicine repairs your body’s mechanics so it can move freely without pain.
An Unavoidable Truth: Genetics
It could be that your genetic makeup is throwing your body out of whack. Regardless of how well you take care of yourself, you may be fighting something that’s unavoidable because it’s passed down through your family tree.
Even though 60-70 percent of people struggle with low back pain sometime in their life, you may find yourself struggling with back or other bodily pain more than most. Visiting a chiropractor is a great way to defend and strengthen your body against your genetically prone wear and tear.
