Manual Chiropractic Adjustments
Hands-on care is common during a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractors are trained to know how to manipulate the vertebrae safely and effectively. Our team at Icon Medical Centers includes only the best chiropractors in Miami.
During the hands-on portion of your chiropractic treatment, your Miami chiropractor will use controlled force to move the joint of your spine into its appropriate position. You may hear a “popping” or “cracking” sound. This is the sound of air escaping from the joint, and it is perfectly normal. Many chiropractic patients at our Miami office find that their chiropractic adjustments relieve discomfort immediately while others take some time to feel the effects.
Treating Lower Back Pain with Chiropractic Treatment
Lower back pain can develop suddenly or over time. If you have been dealing with your condition for a while, it may take a little time to strengthen your muscles and restore your lower back. However, your Miami chiropractor will find ways to make you more comfortable in the meantime.
If your back pain came on suddenly as the result of an injury, rest along with heat and ice therapy can be very effective in reducing swelling and easing discomfort. Once a day or two has passed, however, it’s important that you try to get back into your normal routine. The longer you stay immobile, the weaker your muscles will get, which can create a chronic problem.
Disturbed Nerve Function – Causes
Overexertion, stress or injuries can cause slight displacement of your spinal vertebrae leading to subluxations, which in turn, disturb the function of the nerves.
This disruption leads to muscle tension and spinal nerve disturbance. Because of these disturbances, individuals experience back, head or neck pain. Many people are unaware there is an underlying problem and just start taking painkillers to reduce their pain levels. The chiropractors at Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami can address this problem naturally.
The Digestive System
There is a wealth of nerve cells housed in the lining of the stomach, esophagus, colon and small intestine. There are more than 1 million nerve cells located within the small intestine alone. For this reason, the small intestine is often called the ‘abdominal brain’.
With the addition of the nerve cells from the large intestine, stomach and esophagus, there are more of these cells in the digestive system that is found in the rest of the peripheral nervous system. At Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami, our chiropractors devote themselves to helping their patients feel better.
Studies indicate that more than 40 percent of visits to physicians are due to gastrointestinal issues. Complaints range from abdominal bloating, constipation, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome. Chiropractic care can help relieve digestive disorders. At Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami, our chiropractors assist patients suffering from these kinds of digestive problems.
Nearly all the chemicals appearing in the brain are found within the gut, including neurotransmitters and hormones; which is why correcting any problems in your digestive system is so important. The chiropractors at Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami can help get your digestive system back on track.
Spinal Nerves Control Your Gastrointestinal Processes
Spinal nerves play an important part in:
Slowing down or speeding up your digestive system (gastrointestinal tract) Ensuring that digestive enzymes and other fluids are ideal for proper digestion Enhancing or blocking the blood supply to digestive organs.
Any disturbance in the spinal nerves has the ability to affect these gastrointestinal processes. Chiropractors at the Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami specialize in addressing these disturbances.
Communication can be Restored
To restore proper communication between your brain and digestive system, a chiropractor must correct vertebral misalignment. The chiropractors at Icon Medical Centers near Downtown Miami can correct your misaligned vertebrae to help relieve or even eliminate your gastrointestinal problems and other health issues.
