Chiropractic is an alternative treatment option that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of injuries and conditions associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system, especially low back pain and sciatica. Dr. Alex Jimenez discusses how spinal adjustments and manual manipulations can help improve and reduce many symptoms, such as pain, discomfort, and inflammation. Chiropractors believe that a misalignment of the spine, or a spinal subluxation, is the main cause for painful symptoms. Through the use of manual detection (or palpation), carefully applied pressure, massage, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints (or spinal adjustments), chiropractors are able to help relieve pressure and irritation on the nerves, restore joint mobility, and help restore the human body’s homeostasis. From subluxations, or spinal misalignments, to low back pain and sciatica, a collection of symptoms caused by the compression or impingement of the sciatic nerve, chiropractic care can help restore the individual’s natural state of well-being. Dr. Jimenez compiles a group of concepts pertaining to chiropractic care to help best educate individuals on the variety of injuries and conditions affecting the human body.
