Most often, people go in for chiropractic treatments to treat back or neck pain. However, chiropractic treatments can help resolve many other issues such as headaches, arthritis, whiplash, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, arm/leg pain, headaches and more. There are also other treatments used by a Chiropractor such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), ultrasound and traction that help maximize the benefits of the Chiropractic treatments.
Some issues can never be “cured” such as the issues I have with my back. I have a particular type of degenerative disc disease that started to cause me pain and issues at a very young age. Degenerative disc disease is common, but usually only when you are older, like in your 50s or 60s. While this can never be cured, chiropractic care has helped me manage the pain.
Chiropractic care can also help you to manage your pain by helping to locate and correct serious nervous system stress, strengthen your muscles surrounding your nerves and advising you on the proper exercises and stretches.
Physiotherapy is another helpful speciality and is certainly a better option than surgery when applicable since it saves your money and time. It will also give you desired long term effects since you will be able to walk or run if you practice exercises regularly. You don’t need to lose time at work or from your life for surgery by choosing this alternative method. It also provides relief from chronic pain and is considered as the best alternative to scalpel.
The importance of physiotherapy is well portrayed by the various benefits derived from the treatments. Pain from prior injuries can be alleviated through massage and exercises. Consistent therapy enhances the restoration of motion in joints and high physical coordination. People suffering from impaired mobility can benefit as well. One of the most common causes of impaired mobility is severe joint injuries. People who are suffering from limb injuries may require months of therapy, massage and tissue manipulation for full recovery. People suffering from chronic diseases such as arthritis and stroke may also benefit from Physiotherapy sessions, which will often lead to a reduction in medications.
People are finally starting to see the benefit to massage therapy. Many people used to think it was simply an indulgence but with the stressful routines we live through massages giving us such benefits to reap, there is no doubt that you can improve your health with a routine a massages therapeutic benefits.
Acupuncture is one of the most relaxing treatments and very misunderstood. It was brought to the west in the twentieth century by doctors visiting China. They were amazed to see operations performed on fully conscious patients using acupuncture as an anesthetic.
Acupuncture is a very safe ahealth care treatment, but it is very important that your acupuncturist is an experienced person. There are various cases reported where due to a lack of experience needles inserted have led to the lethal diseases in the patients. Therefore before visiting any acupuncturist, make sure about his or her training and experience. An acupuncturist should be an educated one especially about the human anatomy and physiology. The acupuncture treatment although famous, has not reached everywhere in this world, still there are countries who lack experienced professionals in this field.
Lastly I found that the simplest idea worked best; exercise. Even walking helps relieve stress. The heart health benefits of walking are numerous and walking is essential to maintaining good heart health. If you haven’t exercised in a long time, you can start with a walk around the block and do more as you get stronger. You just have to walk as much as you can. Walking will lower your risk for cardiovascular disease.
Sadly taking up walking started giving me foot pain so I had to look for a solution for that and what I found out was quite shocking to me.
About 70 percent of the population has some degree of abnormal foot condition, so many people can benefit from wearing foot orthotics. While pricey they did the job for me so I’m a fan!
Also good quality orthotics can last for more than one year, and many can last for 5 long years. The lifespan of an orthotic insole depends on the material it’s made of and how often you use it. Hard plastic insoles are more durable than the soft ones, lasting for 3 to 5 years. Soft plastic or foam orthotics may only last for a year. Shoe inserts can last for more than three years if you are an average walker. Athletes will have to replace their inserts every year.
