Why is Corrective Chiropractic Care Different?

chiropractor sacramento

What does corrective chiropractic care entail?

This is a comprehensive approach to healthcare that starts by evaluating the Central Nervous System (CNS) and spinal function. Because the spine houses the CNS, it follows that spinal dysfunction will interfere with the proper functioning of everything in your life, as the CNS controls most functions of the body and mind. Our job as practitioners of Corrective Care Chiropractic is to not only control pain, but to fearlessly search and resolve the causes of your spinal dysfunction. Let's take a look at how this works.

Weight Matters for Spinal Health

Being overweight: the greatest burden your spine can't bear

When it comes to spinal health, carrying extra weight is akin to shooting yourself in the foot. Your spine and the surrounding muscles already have enough to contend with considering gravity and the onset of spinal degeneration that comes with age. So when you add superfluous weight into the mix, those same muscles have to work harder to keep you upright and pain free. The logical conclusion is muscle strain, which causes pain in of itself. But once your muscles cease to support your spine properly, your posture changes; the proper functioning of your spinal motion segments becomes altered. This is how weight leads to long-term spinal problems.

Integrating Massage Therapy with Chiropractic Care

Giving yourself the best chance at wellbeing

Healthcare is best thought of as multi-dimensional: it incorporates everything you and your healthcare team do to take care of you; this includes you as a (key) team player! From the food you eat to the exercise you take to the medicine you receive, healthcare is an integrative method of keeping you alive and well. Chiropractic is another cog in this machine- a conservative method of care that adds another entire dimension of support to your wellbeing. At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we believe that chiropractic's natural modalities are essential to an individual's musculoskeletal health. Remaining upright and pain-free in old age is dependent upon proactively taking care of your spine. And while most of society is too busy to spare a thought for posture, we are here as advocates and professional reference points for your spine's well-being.

Preventing Back Pain While Biking

Cycling and lower back pain go hand in hand

A cycling habit is great for physical fitness, happiness and social well-being. Cycling gets you out for varying degrees of exercise and lets you access the outdoors in a truly unique way. But, as with all physical activities, you need to be careful that your fitness habit is not causing your back pain. The fact is that cycling, because of the mechanical factors involved in the motion, lends itself to back pain. Indeed, people who have no previous history of back pain find that when they start biking, they also gain a tender lower back. But that doesn't have to be the case! We have identified the factors that matter for keeping you on the road and leaving the back pain behind!
