The Role of Chiropractic Care in Your Health

Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to manage your health and overall wellness. Your spinal health is at the center of your musculoskeletal system, so a healthy spine means a healthy you. 

Here at Preva Surgicare - Surgery Center Of The Woodlands in Texas, we believe chiropractic care is invaluable when it comes to treating ongoing pain or when recovering from surgery. That’s why we are proud to include chiropractic doctors as members of our recovery team so that you can get back to normal sooner. 

What do chiropractors do?

Chiropractors are medical professionals who focus on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal conditions by ensuring your body and its joints are in healthy alignment. By ensuring your body is in healthy alignment, chiropractic care helps relieve neck, back, and joint pain, reduce pressure on nerves throughout your body, and boost healing processes. 

Chiropractors often use a number of techniques in order to ensure your body is in alignment,  including spinal manipulation, myofascial release, mechanical spine traction, decompression therapy, and trigger point therapy. 

Post-surgical chiropractic care 

Whether you’ve had orthopedic, urological, podiatric, or another type of surgery with Preva Surgicare, we are with you during every stage of your recovery. That’s why we have numerous chiropractic doctors on our team to support your recovery after surgery. 

After surgery, your body needs time and rest to recover. However, it’s also important to maintain healthy levels of activity during your recovery as directed by your surgeon. 

In coordination with our physical therapy team, chiropractic care can boost your post-operative outcomes. Chiropractors can assist you by reducing your post-surgical discomfort allowing you to continue your rehabilitation exercises and regain normal mobility.

What other health problems benefit from chiropractic care?

Back and neck pain 

Chiropractic care is often recommended as the initial treatment for people suffering from back pain and neck pain. Whether your back and neck pain is caused by a disc problem or injury, chiropractic care helps relieve pressure on your damaged disc or joint preventing nearby nerves from being pinched. 

Usually, your chiropractor uses gentle spinal traction in order to create negative pressure in your spinal column. They may also use spinal manipulation techniques to ensure your vertebrae are correctly aligned. 

Joint problems and arthritis 

Joint pain and arthritis are common problems, especially as we get older and our joints naturally wear down. However, many types of arthritis can strike at any age, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PA), gout, and lupus.

While chiropractic care is not considered a cure for any joint problem, it can help reduce your pain by gently stretching your joints to relieve tenderness and increase your range of motion. 

In addition to the conditions listed above, chiropractic care has also helped people with conditions as varied as headaches, muscle pain, sciatica, and whiplash. Even after your recovery, chiropractic care can help you relax, improve athletic performance, and reduce your stress. 

If you’re suffering from chronic pain or have recently had surgery at Preva Surgicare, contact our team to find out about your chiropractic options by calling 281-377-3706 or request an appointment online today.
