Musculoskeletal system refers to the combination of bones, muscles, tendons, and nerves that enable a human body to move and perform physical tasks. Disorders occur if a body is not used in an optimum way and is not properly cared for.
Musculoskeletal disorders are very common in Canada and over $30 billion are spent annually on its treatment. There are many treatments available for musculoskeletal diseases; chiropractic solutions are one of the most commonly adopted ones.
What are Chiropractic Solutions?
Chiropractic is a form of treatment for mechanical musculoskeletal disorders. It is a viable alternative to the more traditional types of treatments. It is mainly used for back pain resulting from car accidents, sports injuries, etc., but is also effective for pain in other parts of the body like the hands, legs, neck, and head, etc. Chiropractic solutions are quite common in Canada. According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, 4.5 million people visit a chiropractic center annually.
How does it Work?
Chiropractic treatment is the manipulation of the affected area by hands or certain tools. Since most musculoskeletal disorders are caused by misalignment of the musculoskeletal structure of the body, this treatment realigns the body parts in order to restore the original structure.
Since the human body’s repair and restore mechanism is quite robust, realignment of structure usually results in restored mobility. Thus, the body heals itself without the need of any surgery or medication. This process can be adopted for disorders in the entire musculoskeletal system.
When you first go to a chiropractic specialist, you undergo a physical examination, lab tests and imaging, etc. This will help the practitioner decide whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate for you or not.
Musculoskeletal disorders can be treated via many other treatments as well, such as:
- Ice Caps
- NSAIDS – Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
- Typical Analgesics
- Physical Therapy
The right choice of treatment depends on every patient’s specific situation. However, chiropractic solutions are the most natural since they use the body’s own defense mechanisms.
