Chiropractic adjustments are used to treat a wide variety of conditions and injuries. At Lambert Chiropractic Health Centre in Mississauga, ON, our chiropractor provides spinal adjustments to address stress on the nervous system. A properly functioning nervous system allows the body to function properly, heal more effectively and of course helps to alleviate pain. Adjustments are natural, safe, and effective treatments.
How It Works
When you first visit us, our chiropractor will perform a comprehensive physical exam to identify a breakdown in body mechanics, nerve irritation, muscle spasms and inflammation. If X-rays are recommended, they will be taken and analyzed in the office. This detailed examination allows our chiropractor to identify and diagnose the causes of your dysfunction and pain. It also creates a “blue print” that will be used to determine the best chiropractic techniques to apply to customize your care in the office. The Lambert Chiropractic Health Centre offers a variety of adjusting techniques to remove interference in the nervous system. Every adjusting technique is designed to gently move the spine to reduce stress on the spinal nerves. We recognize that everyone is different and requires a customized approach that is described to each new patient based on their exam findings. Our patients range in age from babies to seniors over 100 years so we have experience taking care of spines of all ages. Your nervous system controls every cell, organ and tissue as long as that communication link is working at 100%. Chiropractic adjustments do help people in pain but it is far more than that. Proper function in the spine and nervous system promotes optimal health and performance in addition to helping pain and symptoms.
Physical, mental and chemical stresses are impacting our bodies and our physiology every day. If the spine is stresses, shifted or injured and it heals incorrectly, your body creates juggling acts to compensate. These bad habits over time create a domino effect that forces other areas of the body to juggle as well. Symptoms like pain are unfortunately one of the last things to show up. They indicate that the body can no longer juggle and is forcing you to stop or change your behaviour. In other words, your body is trying to protect you from yourself. Chiropractic adjustments help reprogram these bad habits accumulated over time. We are sending these stressed and injured areas of the spine “back home” to where they want to be but where they have forgotten how to get there on their own. Keep in mind that the chiropractic care timelines are based on how long the problems have been present, and not merely how long the symptoms have been active. The initial detailed examination provides the answers to how many adjustments are needed to meet your goals.
Conditions Treated with Chiropractic Adjustments
A properly functioning spine and nervous system is vital for overall wellness. Our chiropractor uses specific adjustments to promote optimal function and alleviate pain in many different areas of the body.
Neck and Back Pain
There are many causes of neck and back pain. Poor posture, poor workplace ergonomics, sports, and age are just a few. By adjusting the spine, our chiropractor restores proper joint motion and nerve supply, alleviating pain and improving function in the soft tissues of the neck and back.
Frequent headaches can have many different causes. A misaligned spine can lead to nerve irritation and tension in the structures and tissues around the neck, causing head pain. Regular chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain from headaches and reduce the frequency of headaches and migraines.
Vertigo can cause dizziness, disorientation, and nausea. For some people, the condition is so severe that getting out of bed can be challenging. In many cases, joint dysfunction in the neck creates significant nerve irritation in the body’s positioning sensors (proprioception). Chiropractic adjustments can target these joints and alleviate the nerve irritation to resolve vertigo.
When the spine is misaligned, it places unnecessary pressure on joints throughout the body. Rebalancing your body with chiropractic adjustments allows for a natural healing process to take place. A properly function spine and nervous system leads to the alleviation of pain and stiffness.
