Acute and chronic pain resulting from an injury or irritated nerves can cause discomfort to the point that the normal daily activities of a person suffering from it may be disrupted. Although the popular treatment for pain are medicines — and sometimes surgery — there is an alternative treatment that is drug-free and non-invasive. This treatment, which has a growing following, is chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care has an all-natural and holistic approach in relieving pain. Instead of using medicines and surgery, chiropractors locate restrictions in the central nervous system and fix those restrictions using spinal manipulation. Alongside spinal manipulation, chiropractors also guide patients towards a healthier lifestyle by providing them with a diet plan and exercise program suitable for their specific condition.

Conditions treated by chiropractic care include headaches, back pain, neck pain, arm pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and herniated discs. It is also known for treating and preventing injuries acquired while playing sports. Since it focuses on a holistic approach, chiropractic care is also used to aid in weight loss.

To achieve long-term relief from pain, it is important for people to look for a chiropractor who will take the time to carefully evaluate the patient so he can give proper treatment later on. One thing to look for in a chiropractor is their credentials. First of all, a Charlotte chiropractor must have a four year degree in chiropractic care as well as licensure in North Carolina. Once you have a list of chiropractors, narrow it down by asking for personal recommendations from friends. You can narrow your list further by reading through testimonials from patients.
