The human body functions most efficiently when it is in balance. A balanced state occurs when the body is free of any illness or injury that causes one or more of its parts to function abnormally. This results in pain, inflammation, and general discomfort. Musculoskeletal imbalances can occur within the muscles or within the skeleton. These imbalances are often the result of an injury or a chronic condition like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Chiropractic adjustments from Chiropractic First are just one way the delicate balance within the body can be restored, eliminating pain and inflammation.
The Balance Between Bone and Muscle
When an injury occurs and bone or connective tissue is forced out of place or damaged, it causes the soft tissues that surround it to become inflamed and subsequently alter its natural position. The delicate balance between the bone and the soft tissues is disrupted. If both aren’t addressed, the area will begin to heal abnormally resulting in chronic pain and discomfort. A chiropractic adjustment from Chiropractic First addresses both abnormalities. Not only does it allow the bone to move back to its original position, it releases the muscle, allowing it to relax and support the skeletal structure as it normally would. While a single adjustment may work to correct a mild abnormality, you may need several adjustments to restore proper balance and maintain it during the healing process.
Restore Physical Balance and Improve Your Health
Chiropractic adjustments from Chiropractic First are effective at restoring more than just structural balance to the body. When muscles hold inflammation, toxins and contaminants begin to build up within the body. Chronic conditions that affect the joints, like arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome can begin to weaken the body if not addressed effectively. A chiropractic adjustment allows the inflammation to gradually dissipate, restoring blood flow to the area and flushing away toxins and contaminants. As the toxins are flushed away, fresh oxygen and nutrients are brought in to take their place. The tissues now have what they need to begin the healing process.
Balance within the body affects many things. It affects both form and function. When the form is out of balance, the function of the body suffers and vice versa. Through the use of a nutritionally sound diet, regular exercise, and adequate amounts of rest, you can maintain this positive balance. Chiropractic adjustments and other treatment methods like massage therapy and physical therapy can be used as part of an effective treatment plan to help restore balance and maintain good health.
Chiropractic care works to improve balance throughout the entire body. It works by adjusting both the bones as well as the soft tissues, allowing them to return to their natural position without pain or discomfort. By releasing the muscles that hold the bone out of position, the adjustment creates a shift that within the musculoskeletal system that is both restorative and balancing.
