Prevention is the best approach for avoiding pain, injuries and chronic conditions. As chiropractors, we pay close attention to posture, nerve function, muscle and joint mobility. Chiropractors help preserve healthy tissues by improving mobility and relieving abnormal physical stress. Pain is typically noticed when there is abnormal stress on the body that can be immediately following physical trauma such as a fall or collision or the pain can start as a mild ache and become worse over time. Chronic pain can be avoided by recognizing the problem in its early stages and getting appropriate treatment. In cases when injury is unavoidable, a healthy body will recover more quickly. Chiropractic care combined with good nutrition, and regular physical activity can help prevent and manage many health problems such as degerative disc disease and peripheral neuropathies.
