What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to wellness. Doctors of chiropractic use hands-on spinal manipulation, in addition to other natural treatments, to help the body harness its innate ability to heal itself. The spine houses the body’s central nervous system, which controls every cell in the body. Doctors of chiropractic know that if the spine is misaligned, the central nervous system is unable to communicate with the rest of the body as it should. Through chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Hinz, at Cool Springs Chiropractic, restores the spine to its proper alignment. This allows the central nervous system to function as it should, and allows the body to heal itself!
What Symptoms Can Chiropractic Care Treat or Alleviate
When most people think of a chiropractor, they only think of back pain. This is so far from the truth! Doctors of chiropractic treat a multitude of conditions. Here are some examples of what Dr. Hinz regularly treats with chiropractic care at Cool Springs Chiropractic, located in Franklin, TN:
Many people have spent years treating these conditions with over the counter or prescription medications, only to have them return the moment the medication wears off. This happens because OTC meds and prescription meds do not treat ailments at their source! They simply mask the pain until it returns again.
Chiropractic care treats these conditions at their source. Dr. Hinz will study the patient’s spine and identify any subluxations that are present. Once the subluxations are identified, he can correct them, treating pain at its source!
Why You Should Consider Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic care from Dr. Hinz at Cool Springs Chiropractic should be considered for those suffering from life’s everyday aches and pains, as well as more serious conditions. In fact, the American College of Physicians, the largest medical society in the world, now lists spinal manipulation as a conservative approach to back pain care.
One of the best things about chiropractic care is that it is a safe, natural, and effective way to treat pain or ailments. The opioid epidemic across the globe is staggering. Prescription opioid overuse and abuse is literally killing us. Chiropractic offers a natural and effective way to treat pain and ailments, without the use of prescription medications or even over the counter medications!
Here are some great statistics on chiropractic care, provided by the American Chiropractic Association:
- It is estimated that chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children) annually
- Chiropractors are educated in nationally accredited, four-year doctoral graduate school programs through a curriculum that includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical internship,10 with the average DC program equivalent in classroom hours to allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) medical schools
- A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2017 supports the use of spinal manipulative therapy as a first line treatment for acute low back pain
- 95% of past-year chiropractic users say it’s effective, and 97% of past-year chiropractic users are likely to see a chiropractor if they have neck/back pain
- In a consumer survey, chiropractic outperformed all other back pain treatments, including prescription medication, deep-tissue massage, yoga, pilates, and over-the-counter medication therapies
- With prescription pain drug abuse now classified as an epidemic in the United States and the number of spinal fusions soaring 500% over the last decade,18 the essential services provided by chiropractors represent a primary care approach for the prevention, diagnosis and conservative management of back pain and spinal disorders that can often enable patients to reduce or avoid the need for these riskier treatments
- In 2015, the Joint Commission, the organization that accredits more than 20,000 health care systems in the U.S. (including every major hospital), recognized the value of non-drug approaches by adding chiropractic to its pain management standard
