History of Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic care has been around for over 2000 years, with the earliest references being found in Buddhist temples. However, despite its previous history in time, the modern use of chiropractic techniques began in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer. It all started when a man came to Palmer who complained of losing his hearing after experiencing back problems. Palmer then used hand spinal manipulation techniques that no only changed the positioning of his spine but also improve his hearing.
Today chiropractors and doctors work in collaboration to offer solutions to patients who are suffering from musculoskeletal issues. Most issues can be resolved with continued chiropractic care using manual therapy and lifestyle adjustments.
Exercise in Chiropractic care
Exercising is often underrated and only associated with weight loss. However, you’d be surprised at the various health benefits you can gain from simple exercises – not only will it help you feel better and stronger, but it also reduces the risk of back and muscle pains. Some of the easiest exercising techniques that you can try at home include:
- Pelvic tilt: The most important muscles you need to take care of to support your spine are the core muscles. There are many different workouts for the pelvic area and your doctors or chiropractor should be able to give you specific guidance on the ones that are right for your unique pains.
- Stretching: Stretching is a great and simple way to stretch out your muscles and joints. There are some stretches you should avoid if you are experiencing severe pain, but generally, any type of stretching is good for the body.
- Aerobic exercise: Swimming is an excellent way to increase body strength. The water supports the body which then relieves any stress on the back and other joints in the body.
- Yoga and pilates: These are both really good mind and body workouts that are great at improving your overall wellbeing and fitness.
Although chiropractic treatment may not be the solution for everyone, those who have tried it have noticed positive results. Whichever treatment method you decide to use, it is always best to ensure you seek professional advice to ensure this is the right long-term solution for your pain relief.
