The Purpose of Chiropractic

The Purpose of Chiropractic Care at West Hartford Chiropractic

Chiropractic care has brought a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to traditional Western treatments for musculoskeletal issues. Manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints during spinal adjustments can make all the difference in restoring balance to the body’s framework and facilitating proper functioning. With chiropractic care from West Hartford Chiropractic, a gentle, manual, targeted pressure is used to realign the spinal components into their proper configuration. Our West Hartford chiropractors remove subluxations in order to restore normal function to the nervous system and allow your body to express its optimum potential.

Our West Hartford Chiropractors Bring Back Pain Relief Through Chiropractic Care

The main injury in the back can also be related to the spinal discs, which can begin to bulge or become ruptured following an injury. When a disc becomes compromised, it can then protrude from between the vertebrae and press against the nerves of the spinal cord. When this occurs, your chiropractors see significant lower, middle or upper back inflammation and pain, depending upon the location of the disc issue.

Chiropractic care can bring fast, lasting relief and healing for a number of issues that result in spinal misalignment, disc problems or other back or neck injury. The following are some of the most common injuries and conditions that are effectively treated by chiropractic manipulation and spinal adjustment:

  • Sports injury
  • Auto accident
  • Sciatica
  • Work injury
  • Overuse injury
  • Spinal misalignment from poor posture
  • Improper form in work or sports activity
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Extremity pain, tingling or numbness
  • Headaches related to spinal subluxation
  • Back pain related to pregnancy
  • TMJ
