Chiropractic Care

If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you may be wondering what chiropractic care is all about and if it is the right step for you to take.

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care involves the improvement or maintenance of overall body function and movement as it relates to the spine, muscles, joints and nervous system. When pain, swelling, discomfort, reduced movement, and stiffness are present in the body, a chiropractor will assess the root cause of the dysfunction and address the underlying core issue with a customized treatment plan.

This differs from other common methods of treatment such as the prescribing of pain medication, anti-inflammatory drugs, and surgery.

Where drugs and medication may reduce pain and swelling in the short term, they do nothing to address the root cause of the issue.

Surgery is is extremely invasive and poses significant risks but may be necessary in a small percentage of cases, but not most.

What Is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a healthcare professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine. a healthcare profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system.

How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

The basic theory of chiropractic

Chiropractic care is based on the core, underlying theory that the body naturally knows how to heal itself in the best possible way. Chiropractic therapy produces a supportive healing environment and removes the main source of the pain/discomfort, so the body can return to near-normal, if not completely normal functioning.

“Disorders in the body structure are removed so that stresses on the body’s nervous system can be alleviated and the general health of the body can be restored.”
National Institute for Health

How our bodies become misaligned, and how they heal

You have probably experienced a situation where you banged your knee and developed a bruise. For a little while, you have a visible bruise, but over time it disappears. That is a demonstration of your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Now imagine that as the bruise is healing, you were hit again and again in the same place. It would be very difficult for the body to heal that injury with the continued trauma taking place.

Our bodies are under a lot of stress

Certain areas of our body are subject tremendous amounts of daily mechanical stress and strain: the back, the neck, and the shoulders to name just a few. Injuries caused by overuse, repetitive actions, and trauma can stick around because of misalignments in the spinal column and joints. Our chiropractors at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare help to identify the root of the injury and put a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan in place to help eliminate the root cause and help the body return to normal function, or better!

What  Conditions Can Chiropractic Care Help?

So what conditions can chiropractic care help? Well, your spine is what protects your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is how your body communicates between the brain and every system. If there is a vertebra that is misaligned, it may be impinging on a nerve. This is important because it is being found that the nervous system plays a key role in how your immune system functions. Therefore, if your nervous system is being compromised, your immune system may be compromised and malfunctioning. A chiropractor is a specially trained doctor that treats and protects the nervous system by relieving pressure off of the nerves. By doing this, you are allowing your body to function at its max potential and not overreact to allergens, fight infections quicker as well as decrease the likelihood of contracting illness such as colds and flu.

If you are suffering from these conditions call Hoboken Integrated Healthcare for a no-obligation consultation. 

Chiropractic Care and Automobile Accidents

Following an automobile accident, whiplash is the most common injury. After being struck by another object from the rear or the side, the neck will thrash back and forth quickly and violently. When this occurs, the muscles in the neck will become hyperextended and may be strained or torn. This kind of soft tissue injury will lead to stiffness and soreness in the neck and/or upper back. The quick snapping movements that occur during whiplash will also likely lead to structural damage. These misalignments can also create associated herniate or bulging discs. In severe case, a disc may rupture or cause nerve damage.

Chiropractic is proven to help both soft tissue and structural injuries caused by whiplash.  There are specific, low force manual adjustments that we perform at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare for those that suffer from whiplash and other injuries due to a car accident.  It’s very important to make sure that pressure is removed off the nerves and motion is restored.  Call us today to begin your healing and put this accident behind you.

Chiropractic Care and Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the joints gets wore down. The likelihood of developing osteoarthritis increases if you have suffered an injury in joints like the hips, knees, wrist, hands, ankles, feet, neck or back. This condition can be very painful and make daily life a struggle. It also can have an effect on the rest of your body. This happens due to compensation. If a person has pain in one knee then they are going to put extra weight on the opposite knee. This not only effects the knee you are putting more weight on but it also affects your ankles, feet, hips, pelvis and low back.  Pain-killers can provide relief until it wears off and it’s time to take another pill. Chiropractic can help the pain by taking pressure off nerves and joints due to compensation. Chiropractic adjustments also help restore proper movement in joints in the affected and unaffected areas. This is important because at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare we are concerned with treating your entire body.

The condition joint dysfunction can be described as joints that become stiff and full movement is restricted. There are many difference causes of this condition including, but not limited to, muscle imbalance, injury, or poor posture. Compensation is a common cause of addition pain, just like with arthritis. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is the most commonly treated joint dysfunction. The sacroiliac joint is where the sacrum (tailbone) joins with the pelvis. The joint dysfunction can create pain in the low back and limit movement.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often misdiagnosed for sciatica or a herniated disc. Call Hoboken Integrated Healthcare today to be properly diagnosed. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare we will perform a thorough exam and specific adjustments to restore movement and give you relief.

Chiropractic Care and Neck and Back Pain

It is common to experience neck or back discomfort at some point in the day. Poor posture, a life of micro traumas, toxins and much more will create subluxations within the spinal. These subluxations will lead to pain because of the compressed nerves and discs. If these aches and pains are left untreated, muscle spasms and increasing pain may occur. If left untreated for a long enough period of time, nerves can eventually die which may lead to more serious consequences. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we are here to rid your body of these subluxations and relieve you pain.

Chiropractic Care and Headaches

Headaches are considered to be a normal way of life for people. What people don’t know is that more than three headaches a year is not normal. There are many factors that can lead to headaches, such as loud noises, stress or hunger, but it may not be the underlying cause. The most common cause behind headaches is muscular tension in the neck and shoulders.  These tight muscles can cause stress on the surrounding vertebrae which can lead to pain and headaches. Studies have found that 85% of all headaches can be traced back to the neck. A headache that originates from the neck is known as a cervicogenic headache. A person that experiences cervicogenic headaches is likely to feel throbbing, aching pain at the base of the head. The pain usually radiates into the forehead and temples with pain behind the eyes. A combination of massage and chiropractic adjustments can relieve the muscular tightness and restore structure to the neck. Regular chiropractic care can relieve and prevent headaches. Come to Hoboken Integrated Healthcare and just ask our patients!

Chiropractic Care and Sciatica

One of the most common conditions suffered by middle age to elderly citizens is known as sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs through the sacrum (tailbone) and down the back of the legs. Sciatica can be caused by a misalignment or due to a muscular problem. If a person has a disc issue or experiences muscles spasms in the low back, their pain may be worse due to the increased pressure. Many people believe that their hip(s) may be the cause of this pain because of where the pain originates. The pain in the glute region is the sacroiliac joint, where the sacrum meets the pelvis. Those suffering from sciatica experience shooting, sharp, burning pains down the back of their leg. It is not very common to experience this pain in both legs simultaneously.  At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we will properly treat this problem without surgery. We will also resolve the issue rather than mask the pain with medication.

Chiropractic Care and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a very common condition especially for people that use computers a significant amount. This occurs due to the repetitive movements combined with poor posture. This combination of physical stress creates stress along with wear and tear. All nerves start in the spine, including the nerves that run into your fingertips. Chiropractic adjustments and proper posture can help relieve the stress and pressure on your nerves and joints.

Chiropractic Care and Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is defined as chronic, widespread pain and affects almost 6 million Americans. Today there is not a lot of knowledge as to what causes it but the symptoms include pain throughout the body, especially the joints. People suffering from fibromyalgia describe the pain as mild or severe burning, aching, sharp, shooting and radiating. Because of this widespread, chronic pain it is common for the condition to bring on headaches, depression and/or anxiety. Today there is not a known cure but research is showing that chiropractic adjustments have provided relief for those suffering from fibromyalgia. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare we perform a thorough exam and provide care the strengths the entire body by relieving stress on the nervous system.

Chiropractic Care and Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves have been found to be the culprit behind many different conditions from headaches to heart attacks, from infertility to widespread pain. This happens because there are structural misalignments that compress the nerves that extend off the spinal cord. This compression not only affects the direct area but it can extend further than thought. A misalignment in the pelvis can create migraines. That is why at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare we perform a full body examination. We do not just do the minimum when your health is in our hands.

There are many conditions that have been discussed that chiropractic care can help. Not only can chiropractic adjustments help alleviate pain and help conditions, but it can also prevent conditions through maintenance care. Regularly scheduled visits help maintain proper structure and mobility. Keeping your nervous system functioning helps keep your immune system, reproductive system, respiratory system, circulatory system and much more functioning at its max potential!

Call us today at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare in Hoboken for your no-obligation consultation and get your body functioning at its max potential! Imagine the possibilities!
