Surprising Benefits You Might Not Expect from Chiropractic Care at Reinecke Chiropractic
May 1, 2017
You’re probably aware that chiropractors can help with backaches and neck pain, but you might not be aware that chiropractic care can also be used to treat a range of symptoms and problems. People receive many surprising health benefits from chiropractic care, including some that you might not have heard about.
Chiropractic treatment can benefit people of all ages, from infants to the elderly, and can be used to alleviate both short-term and chronic conditions, from sinus headaches and digestive problems to persistent aches and pains. Care at Reinecke Chiropractic can also assist with pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation and injury recovery, particularly when used in combination with ARP wave neuro therapy.
Recently I was at a continuing education program on back exercises to reduce pain and improve function. They worked on the standard extension exercises. The program sited success when a patient’s pain and disability were reduced after a six-month exercise program.
The ARP wave neural therapy program that we use at Reinecke Chiropractic works on the muscles that are not allowing the extensor muscles to function properly. This ARP wave neuro therapy rehab program first begins with the patient learning how to touch their toes again. By treating the muscles at the cause of the problem, we can achieve similar results in weeks instead of months.
I personally experienced the amazing healing benefits of ARP when I had my knee replaced this past winter. As a result of applying ARP neuro therapy both prior to and after my surgery, I regained my flexion (the ability to bend my knee) and mobility remarkably quickly – much more quickly than the average individual who does not utilize ARP as part of rehabilitation. I’ve treated patients who, after receiving a series of pre-surgery ARP treatments, had stellar healing results after their surgery. So whether you know you’ll be having surgery in the near future and want to boost your body’s healing ability, or have already had surgery and would like to enhance your body’s post-operative healing and rehabilitation process, ARP may be ideal for you. And if you’ve undergone surgery, done all recommended rehabilitation exercises and treatments, yet still continue to experience problems/pain/limited mobility or below-average results, ARP neuro therapy may be the perfect complimentary treatment to get you past your healing plateau and regain the agility you desire.
BEGINNING CARE EARLY: Children benefit from chiropractic care, too! One key to avoiding pain and limited mobility later in life is to receive preventative chiropractic care early on, before the onset of pain or injury. A wise teacher once made to me the very accurate observation, “A kid is not gonna fake it.” In other words, when a child complains of pain and no longer wants to participate in sports or other physical games and activities that he normally loves to do, there’s something wrong, and it needs to be addressed. Children do not fake such pain; if a child does not feel well, there’s a legitimate reason. Children tend to be active and often have subluxations in their spines, causing problems in their nervous systems and leading to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care can provide almost immediate relief from these symptoms. Children’s bodies respond quickly and positively to chiropractic adjustments. “Growing pains” – pain associated with the growth process – can be alleviated with chiropractic care. Even infants benefit from chiropractic care, which helps treat ailments such as earaches, constipation/digestive issues, colic, and other maladies common to babies. Oftentimes just one adjustment can effectively treat or eliminate these problems. Just as you don’t know that your child has eyesight problems until you take her to an eye doctor, chiropractic care can identify problems in your child’s spinal alignment and nervous system that you might not have known were there.
Overall, you might be surprised by the range and variety of the natural healing benefits that chiropractic care can provide for people of all ages!
