The Benefits of Chiropractic

Overland Park, KS Chiropractic Care

Many people in Overland Park, KS have the idea that chiropractic care is a way to treat back and neck pain. Chiropractic may benefit your medical care for such problems, our job at KC Spine and Sport is to help you improve your overall health and wellness.

Your body has an incredible, innate ability to heal itself and be well. When your body isn't functioning properly, you experience illness, disease, or pain.

In order to correct these maladies we utilize a Chiropractic adjustment. A Chiropractic adjustment, or manipulation, involves correcting abnormal and restrictive movement patterns found in the joints. Reducing these abnormal movement patterns often leads to a reduction in pain symptoms, while simultaneously increasing the range of motion in the targeted joint.

Many people experience pain and discomfort due to the restricted joints in the spine or extremities which affect how the body functions. Chiropractic manipulations utilize a gentle, but quick force or impulse to restore movement to a restricted joint and enhance your body's neurological inputs. This type of manual manipulation often results in an audible release called a cavitation. This cavitation is simply the release of gas from the joints and often leaves patients feeling like they can move easier with less pressure.

By restoring the proper movement patterns of the joints we can more easily target the soft tissue that is also affecting the area and gain a lasting improvement to the overall motion of the joints. Essentially, if you move better you feel better.

Our patients at KC Spine and Sport have seen the benefits of chiropractic care, and the scientific literature provides the proof. Here are just a few of the proven benefits of chiropractic:
