Do you feel that sometimes a visit to the doctor and prescription drugs are not enough in your search to improve your overall health? Are you physically and mentally tired of suffering the side effects of some of these drugs? Are they taking its toll on your body and quality of life in general? Perhaps you could benefit from more of a holistic approach of chiropractic that focuses on treating the root cause of a disease instead of just treating its symptoms. The goal of chiropractic is to consider the whole person – mind and body – as necessary for healing and to achieve true wellness. Chiropractors in Burlington trust in the body’s natural ability to restore and heal itself with a little help – more like creating a condition that is conducive to healing.
How Can Chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic therapy is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment supporting the body’s musculoskeletal system. It is a hands-on approach. Chiropractors practice on people of all ages (children, adults, elderly and pregnant women). You can contact your chiropractor in Burlington for sports injuries, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs, tendonitis, hand injuries as well as post shoulder dislocation therapy.
Find a Chiropractor You Trust
Of the 9,000 plus practising chiropractors in Canada, over 7,800 are members of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA). They are all licensed doctors of chiropractic. So, if you do not have a referral for a chiropractor in Burlington, you may even contact the CCA for assistance in finding one near you. When deciding on a chiropractor, ensure you find out as much as you can about the person’s training, experience, specialty, associations with professional or national organizations and if he or she is certified to practice chiropractic. Take time to evaluate your needs and discuss your goals in consultation with your chiropractor so that you are both on the same page with regards to goal of treatment.
Let the Healing Begin
Once you have undergone a chiropractic treatment, you may start feeling noticeably better soon after. However, this is mostly for non-complex musculoskeletal conditions. As every pain experience is unique so is the relief time. For example, bones tend to repair quickly within five to six weeks if there is good blood supply. Comparatively, ligaments and tendons may take longer and up to eight weeks. Discs and cartilage take the longest anywhere from three months upwards. But after some time the pain can even completely disappear with functional improvement.
