At Bond Thomas Chiropractic, we go above and beyond to try to help St. Petersburg residents understand the many ways in which they can benefit from chiropractic treatment. While most people know that this type of alternative medicine can help alleviate back and neck pain, some mistakenly believe that this is all the treatment consists of—and this couldn’t be further from the truth.
When you visit our St. Petersburg clinic for chiropractic treatment, you will learn the many ways in which our services can help you—regardless of age or lifestyle. If you have never tried this type of holistic healthcare before, you might be a little skeptical. There is some debate out there regarding the “effectiveness of chiropractic therapies” and whether or not they actually “work.”
If you have found yourself hesitant about the idea of visiting a St. Petersburg chiropractor, it’s understandable. After all, if you’re not entirely confident it is an effective form of treatment, why waste your time or money in pursuing it? However, it is important to understand that many people who assume this type of treatment is isolated to specific conditions or injuries, or is just a “hoax,” probably don’t have a thorough understanding of what exactly it is and how it works.
Most chiropractic treatment deals with, yes, the spine, the core component of the central nervous system—which is essentially your body’s powerhouse system. It is this area of your body where the communication between your cells and nerves begin, and greatly influences the functioning of many other systems of your body—such as the respiratory and immune system.
Obviously, it is important that it is healthy and working at optimal levels. Any imbalances in your spine or central nervous system cause miscommunication throughout your body and, ultimately, lead to injuries, disorders, illness, and disease.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to not only correct these misalignments in your spine, often referred to as “subluxations” as they occur, but to prevent them from happening in the first place. The adjustments and manipulations you get when you visit a St. Petersburg chiropractor release the unnecessary pressure put on your joins that can cause pain and discomfort.
In addition to pain alleviation and the prevention of illness, disease and injury, there are also a number of other benefits to this alternative treatment that can be incentives for people to give it a try.
