Organic Healthcare: No Prescription Necessary

Bottom Line:
The term chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir (meaning hands) and praxis (meaning practice). It literally means “done by hand,” and chiropractic is among the most popular healthcare treatments sought by those seeking holistic healthcare in Hallettsville, TX.

Since the beginning, chiropractors have been focused on helping the body heal itself naturally without the use of prescription medications or invasive surgeries.

While the modern chiropractic profession began back in 1895, many people still don’t exactly understand how chiropractic care works… or when it makes sense to even see a chiropractor.

So, let’s start with the basics.

Why it Matters:
If you’ve been living with aches and pain, it’s often connected to abnormal movement patterns that affect your neuromusculoskeletal system – your brain, nerves, muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, tendons, etc.
These abnormal movement patterns can happen for a variety of reasons that range from repetitive stress, like long hours at a computer, to sudden injuries. Correcting these abnormal movement patterns with gentle, safe, effective, and non-invasive treatments is where chiropractors shine and why you shouldn’t hesitate to seek care from a chiropractor if you’re in pain.
A few targeted chiropractic adjustments to the affected joints can help correct abnormal movement patterns which can make a significant impact on overall pain levels, mobility, and well-being.

In one recent study, researchers observed a measurable improvement in the biomechanical and functional performance in low back pain patients immediately following adjustments. Participants were able to move and complete tasks more efficiently and freely with less pain and discomfort.

In another study, researchers found that chiropractic care was associated with significant improvements in health-related quality of life over a period of time, especially with the reduction of pain.

Chiropractic Care is Holistic Healthcare
It’s important to point out that chiropractors follow a whole person (Holistic) approach. It’s not all about the adjustment. Chiropractors perform a comprehensive history and examination during your first appointment.
