Organic Healthcare: No Prescription Necessary

Home » Blogs from Crist Chiropractic » Organic Healthcare: No Prescription Necessary

Did you know that chiropractors and holistic chiropractors are one and the same?

The term chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir (hands) and praxis (practice).

It literally means “done by hand,” and chiropractic is among the most popular health treatments sought by those seeking holistic healthcare in Franklin, TN.

Since the beginning, chiropractors have been focused on helping the body heal itself naturally without the use of prescription medications or invasive surgeries.

In some ways, chiropractors were the world’s first ‘organic” health professionals!

And while modern chiropractic began way back in 1895, many people still don’t exactly understand how chiropractic care works… or when it makes sense to see a chiropractor.

Let’s start with the basics.

Why it Matters:

If you’ve been living with aches and pain, it’s often connected to distorted movement patterns that affect your neuromusculoskeletal system – your brain, nerves, muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, tendons, etc.

And those abnormal movement patterns can happen for a variety of reasons that range from long hours at a computer and repetitive stress to sudden injuries.

Correcting those abnormal movement patterns with gentle, safe, effective, and non-invasive treatments is where chiropractors shine and why you shouldn’t hesitate to seek holistic healthcare in Franklin, TN from a chiropractor if you’re in pain.

For many, a few targeted adjustments to the affected joints can help reset any distorted movement patterns which in turn can make a significant impact on their overall pain levels, mobility, and well-being.

In one recent study, researchers observed a measurable improvement in the biomechanical and functional performance in low back pain patients immediately following adjustments.

Participants were able to both move and complete tasks more efficiently and freely and with less pain.

In yet another study, researchers found that chiropractic care was associated with significant improvements in health-related quality of life over time, especially in pain.

Chiropractic Care is Holistic Healthcare

It’s important to point out that chiropractors – aka, holistic chiropractors – follow a whole person approach.

It’s not all about the adjustment.

For example, chiropractors perform a comprehensive history and examination during your first appointment.

This helps us determine what may be the result of any spinal issues and it also gives us the important information we need to advise you about simple lifestyle changes that have the potential to help you find lasting relief from other symptoms and boost the results of your care.

Let’s take a moment to recap…

● Abnormal movement patterns, chronic stress, and an inflammatory diet can often cause aches and pains in your spine and joints.

● Our care plans are designed to help you reach your health goals as quickly as possible.

● Adjusting the joints of your body can both help to decrease your pain and increase your functional ability.
