Don’t Let Pain Spoil Your Day: Benefits of Chiropractic Care

The pains that we sometimes ignore limit our movements as well as affect some of our body tissues.  We know that our spinal column is an essential part of our body, because without it, we will not be able to stand tall or sit erect.  Typically, when we experience pain in our back, neck or head we will take medicine and hope the pain goes away, but it usually comes back after the medicine wears off.  With chiropractic care not only do you relieve the pain, but it eliminates it as well.  Contact Dr. Scott Shaw in Richmond about knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, auto injuries, sciatica treatment and an array of others so that you can find relief.Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Understanding the Benefits of Chiropractic Care

One of the main causes of pain and disease in the human body can be traced to improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column.  Through carefully applied pressure, massage, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints, pressure and irritation on the nerves is relieved and joint mobility is restored, allowing your body to return to its natural state of balance. 
When the bones in your spine are allowed to go back to their proper positions, the nerve energy can resume its normal flow and your body’s natural healing processes can function properly.  Over the past few decades, the medical community has come to accept and recognize chiropractic care as a valid form of treatment for a variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, and as a conservative treatment option for patients with lower back pain.  Even more so, many doctors recognize a chiropractic diagnosis and accept it as the first line of treatment for functional disorders of the entire musculoskeletal system. 


Additional Chiropractic benefits include:

  • Improved blood circulation
  • Reduced, or eliminated, lactic acid in the stomach
  • Enhanced maneuverability
  • Controlled soreness
  • Faster recuperation
  • Muscle contraction is lessened
  • Tired muscles, tissues and nerves are relaxed
  • Further injury is prevented

If you suffer from neck, back, hip or shoulder pain contact your Richmond chiropractor, Dr. Scott Shaw, for further diagnosis and treatment.  With help from Dr. Shaw, you and your family can preserve a lifetime of good health.
