PRLog - Nov. 26, 2011 - SOLANA BEACH, Calif. -- Dr. Dustin Bouwhuis, DC at Solana Beach Chiropractic says there is a common misconception that people have of chiropractic care. Most people think that chiropractic care is only for people with back pain or spinal misalignment.
The truth is that the chiropractic doctor of today is educated in a variety of areas and can
deal with a variety of health concerns. Some of the more common areas that people are familiar with of course include the following:
* Back pain problems - 65 to 70% of people visit a chiropractor because of this issue.
* Pain in the head and neck - next to back pain this is also one of the more common problems chiropractors treat.
* Headaches and migraines - more people are discovering chiropractic care to be an
excellent cure for migraine headaches.
* Asthma - Asthma is often caused by neurological imbalance or some form of physical
restriction. Chiropractic care such as spinal adjustments have been identified as an effective treatment.
The primary reason for the continued rise and growth of chiropractic care is because of the wide array of benefits that chiropractors can treat. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and can encourage the body to heal itself.
Anytime you have a misalignment in your spine it can interfere with your ability to perform as you normally would. When individuals want to remain active, but have some spinal misalignment it can interfere with your motor capacity. This is caused by pain in any traumatized area of the body.
