Good Chiropractic Care can be hard to come by especially in a smaller city like Pensacola, FL. At Gilmore Chiropractic we want you help you feel the benefits of chiropractic care by getting your body realigned and pain free through techniques like instrument adjustment, hands on adjustments and body movements.
Neck Pain Relief
If you work a desk job sitting all day, odds are you may need chiropractic care to rehabilitate your neck and relieve pain. A recent study found that cervical spine manipulation may help decrease neck pain by modifying levels of neuropeptides in your blood. Neuropeptides are proteins made in your nervous system that function as neurotransmitters or hormones. The study showed that 12 weeks of treatment was enough to relieve most people’s neck pain.
Less Pain Medication Usage
After a car accident or a workplace injury, many people end up using narcotic pain medications such as opioids to relieve the pain. Chiropractic Care can help ease the pain enough to taper back the need for these types of drugs.
Reduces Osteoarthritis Symptoms and Headaches
Osteoarthritis is defined as the degeneration of cartilage in joints that cause the ends of the bones to rub together. Certain types of chiropractic care can lead to realigning your joints which can reduce how much your bones rub together. Chiropractic manipulation may help slow down the progression of arthritis by improving the condition of cartilage, bone, and the joint capsule.
Spinal adjustments can also help relieve chronic headaches. Anywhere from 6 to 8 sessions of upper thoracic spine manipulation are more effective for relieving pain in people with chronic headaches than standard stretching.
Improves Posture and Scoliosis
Hyperkyphosis, also known as hunch-back posture can be corrected most of the time through regular chiropractic manipulations such as Flexion-distraction technique and Instrument-assisted manipulation. Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine have a vast knowledge of musculoskeletal issues and disorders. The physical examinations all chiropractors provide with new patients can help identify scoliosis. Many adults with scoliosis find non-drug, non-invasive chiropractic treatments can help reduce their pain by limiting the pressure on their nerves and strengthening their core.
