Chiropractors Alameda California

When it comes to taking care of your health with a holistic method such as chiropractic care, it is perfectly normal to want to research and soothe any doubts or worries that come to mind. Just like any form of care, you will want to assure its safety, the qualifications of the provider and the comfort of the treatment. That little voice in your head may be asking what that “cracking” sound is all about anyways! We are here to answer your questions and get you feeling confident so you can treat your pain with (in our humble opinion) one of the best options around.
The truth is, chiropractic care improves your health naturally and is the foundation to alleviating pain, improving mobility, and promoting overall wellness. Let’s clear up the fear of the unknown with how chiropractic wellness brings balance and pain relief back to your lifestyle.

Chiropractic Care Brings You Safe Healing

When it comes to your health, it’s natural to feel apprehensive about the safety of a certain treatment. There’s many safeguards within the field of chiropractic though, especially when compared to other treatments for pain or discomfort. The side effects of pain-relief medication can have surprisingly devastating effects and in some cases can even create a chemical addiction. More permanent solutions like surgery are not without great risk. These approaches invade your physical systems, potentially rendering you more vulnerable to disease or to more serious health issues than the ones you’re trying to heal.

There are many benefits and in many cases fewer risks or side effects when using chiropractic care. When administered by qualified professionals, this treatment never invades your immune system. With no chemicals used, your body’s hormonal equilibrium stays right where it is, all while you experience pain relief. Results from chiropractic care come from careful adjustments to your body’s alignment. The treatments support the restorative systems of your body, working in tandem with your natural design of your body to be well, instead of suppressing the signals of imbalance.

Chiropractors Are Qualified Professionals

Another misconception about chiropractors is that they aren’t real doctors. What kind of qualifications are needed to perform chiropractic healthcare? Are there any? Yes there are, in fact, the length of post-graduate education needed to receive a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C) degree roughly equals the hours of education required for a medical degrees.

Within D.C. degree programs, chiropractors study subjects such as anatomy, physiology, neurology, and diagnostic procedures. The education to become a chiropractic professional develops a deep understanding of the human body and its musculoskeletal system in the student.

In all 50 U.S. states including California, chiropractors are licensed healthcare providers. This licensure confirms that they meet specific educational and competency requirements, work by an ethical standard, and never stop educating themselves in their field. When you visit Bespoke Wellness, you can be confident that you are receiving care from qualified and knowledgeable healthcare professionals, like Dr. Erin “Sage” McClive.

The Cracking Isn’t Your Bones

We all associate chiropractor work with the trademark “cracking” or “popping” during adjustments, which might make you feel a little anxious. If you’ve heard these noises are the bones cracking or being damaged, let’s bust the myth with the real physical healing process that is occuring.

In reality, the sound you hear is not bones cracking or breaking. It’s the release of gas bubbles within the synovial fluid, a lubricating substance found in your joints. Chiropractors use precise, controlled movements to apply pressure to specific joints. The pressure separates the joint surfaces for a split-second and releases the gas that makes the popping sound.

The goal of chiropractic treatment is to alleviate pain and discomfort, not induce it. The adjustments performed by chiropractors are painless and may even provide immediate relief from existing discomfort. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs and preferences, ensuring that you are comfortable throughout the process.

Find Better Healing With Chiropractic Wellness

Compared to other methods of pain relief or healing, chiropractic adjustments are more natural and can instantly bring relief. The wellness that comes from consistent treatment will change more than back pain or aching joints; your body will feel more at peace with itself.
