Chiropractic Adjustments Bring Relief
Let’s face it: most of us will experience physical discomfort at some point in our lives. Whether it’s that familiar, dull ache as you pull yourself out of bed in the morning, or a sharp, stabbing pain following an acute injury, chiropractic care can help. At Bowman Chiropractic Center, we’re dedicated to getting you out of pain and back to living the life you deserve. If you live in the Arlington metro area, our caring and compassionate team is here to serve you.
A Chiropractor Takes a Holistic Approach to Treatment
At Bowman Chiropractic, we use what we’ve termed a “whole person approach” when tackling pain at its source. Your body is a complex, interconnected system. If there is change in one part of the system, you essentially change the whole. As such, our approach to treatment begins with a full physical examination and evaluation of your medical history.
To gain further insight into your unique situation, we’ll ask questions about your lifestyle habits, occupation, daily activity, stress levels, and anything else that may contribute to the discomfort you’re currently experiencing. Unlike a conventional doctor, we pay particularly close attention to the spine, because often, painful conditions stem from vertebral misalignment.
Chiropractic Adjustments Treat the Source of Your Pain
After collecting all pertinent information, we’re then able to make an informed diagnosis. Rather than muting your symptoms with medication or other temporary fixes, we seek to locate the origin of your pain. In doing so, we can provide the appropriate treatments to alleviate your discomfort at its source.
Once we’ve determined exactly where your discomfort stems from, only then can we begin to treat it effectively. Chiropractors typically begin treatment with gentle manipulation techniques designed to progressively bring your body back into alignment. In addition to spinal adjustments, we also perform myofascial and active release therapies to address soft tissue tension and abnormalities that contribute to spinal misalignment and pain.
Spinal misalignment has five distinct, pain-generating components: bone, nerve, muscular, soft tissue, and chemical. By bringing your spinal column back into proper alignment, we address each component at its origin. Normal nerve conduction is restored, muscular tissues surrounding the spine gradually relax, pro-inflammatory chemical secretion drops off, and tendons and ligaments regain flexibility and normal functioning. Through our conservative combination approach, we achieve lasting relief and improvements in the following areas:
- Range of motion
- Circulation to muscle tissue and spinal structures
- Nerve conduction
- Chronic inflammation
With continued adjustments, improvements become more noticeable over time. This conservative approach allows patients to return to normal activities without the additional pain and downtime that many conventional therapies require.
