What is chiropractic care? | Dr. Andrew Cash, MD Las Vegas, Nevada

By Brooke Strickland and Andrew Cash, MD

Just like regular visits to your dentist to help promote good oral health and prevent health issues, regular visits to your chiropractor can help maintain a healthy spine and help treat and prevent spinal issues or injuries.  Many people think that chiropractic care is just a quick fix – they go in when they’re hurting – and that’s it.  But chiropractic care is much more than that.  Your spinal column and vertebral system house your central nervous system: the very center of everything that controls what’s happening in your body.  Almost every life-sustaining process that happens in your body is done through your brain and the central nervous system, so when your back and neck aren’t working properly, this communication breakdown to the brain is huge and can cause significant issues for the rest of your body.  When the integrity of this system is challenged, your body will feel it – usually in more ways than one.  Chiropractors help maintain the proper positions of the spine and joints that help house your nervous system and keep that communication system on track.  This helps keep your body functioning at its peak.

When your spine becomes misaligned, which is often due to stress, injury, poor posture, or other medical conditions, your body can feel overwhelmed.  That’s when a visit to a chiropractor is most important.  These doctors help promote all aspects of health and can help you get realigned. Chiropractors work to help detect the problem area you’re experiencing and then work to fix it so your body can get back on the road to healing. 

Ongoing chiropractic care can also help with the management or relief of:

  • Leg pain
  • Knee, foot, and ankle pain
  • Shoulder and elbow pain
  • Arm or wrist pain
  • Migraines and tension headaches
  • Sleep disorders
  • Repetitive stress disorders
  • Stress and tension disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic injuries

Proper care and maintenance of your spine is important and is very necessary to a healthy lifestyle.  With a normally functioning spine and a healthy nervous system, your body will be more apt to heal itself.
