Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care in IndependenceAt Andrews Chiropractic, we look at chiropractic care as the conservative management of problems. It’s a movement-based approach at health care that focuses on treating musculoskeletal and neurological issues. “My goal is to address fixated joints and tight muscles which in turn will decrease nerve interference,” says Dr. Doug. “As a chiropractor, I have a direct effect on muscles and joints by loosening up a muscle manually and mobilizing a joint by hand.”

Effects on the Nerves

Through that direct effect on muscles and joints, we can have an indirect effect on the nerves underneath — whether that’s nerve roots coming out of the spine or if that’s peripheral nerves running through muscles and joints. “I’m not changing a nerve directly but instead am influencing it indirectly through other treatments. That’s where the benefit of decreasing nerve interference or irritation comes into play,” says Dr. Doug.

Experience Many Benefits

In addition to providing effective pain relief, chiropractic has a variety of other benefits: it can help you sleep better and improve your overall ability to move. The first few weeks of care will determine how well a patient will get. Results vary based on the severity of the problem and the chronicity. It also depends on the person.
