Chiropractic is an incredibly safe and effective method of health care delivered by the hands of highly educated providers. It is well documented that the activities of our daily lives can lead to breakdowns (rapid, such as an ankle sprain or repetitive, such as in carpal tunnel) in our muscles and bones. Chiropractic addresses these breakdowns and the corresponding disruption of nerve function due to misalignment (subluxation) of the bones (vertebrae) which make up our spine.
This dysfunction in the spine can lead to pain, numbness, swelling, tingling, or spasm around the problematic vertebral joint and can also lead to symptoms of the nerves leaving the spine which can affect your arms, legs, hands, and feet in a similar way. While chiropractic is incredibly effective in treating these symptoms, it can also assist your body with things such as headaches, digestion, blood pressure, and many other health issues we all may face on a daily basis. Chiropractic does not claim to cure these issues; it does however assist your body in handling them with greater efficiency by removing the nerve interference from the spinal column and the central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord).
While the treatment of symptoms is very important, our goal at Galan Sports Chiropractic is not only to help eliminate the symptoms and issues mentioned above, but to move you to optimum wellness. You cannot function at your maximum potential in any activity if you have even slightly impaired nerve coordination from your brain to the rest of your body or from your body back to your brain. Having regular adjustments is vital not only to keep you pain free and feeling great, but also allowing you to PR in that next race, or enjoy a non restricted golf swing, or simply to remove restrictions and avoid injury.
Chiropractic continues to grow in scientific proof and acceptance within the medical community as it successfully helps an estimated 30 million people recover from spine related health issues without the use of drugs and surgery on a yearly basis. It is very likely that no matter your age, gender, profession, fitness status, or activity level, there is room to be better, and that is what we hope to help you achieve!
