Top 5 Benefits of Chiropractic Care by Dr. Karl Jawhari
Dr. Karl Jawhari is a licensed chiropractic doctor who has helped countless patients dealing with chronic pain, specifically on the back and neck. He has spent 15 years doing research and conducting studies on the various causes of chronic pain, specifically neck and back pain caused by poor spinal health.
When Dr. Karl Jawhari founded Core Integrative Health, he had but one goal in mind: to help patients achieve long-lasting relief from chronic pain through a combination of methodologies with a special focus on non-invasive alternative treatments and nutritional proficiency. The treatments result in longer-lasting relief and improved overall well-being.
One of the non-invasive alternative treatments that patients found to be effective is chiropractic care, which is generally defined as “spinal manipulation.” Here Dr. Karl Jawhari shares some of the benefits of chiropractic treatment:
1. Significant improvement on back pain
Every year, it is estimated that 22 million people in the United States visit a chiropractic clinic and about 7.7 million of these complain of back pain. In a study published on the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) website, it was reported that “spinal manipulation is as effective as other interventions for reducing pain and improving function;” and Dr. Karl Jawhari completely agrees.
2. Alternative, drug-free treatment
Among the various reasons why patients dealing with acute and chronic pain turn to chiropractic doctors for their condition, the most common is effective pain management without medication. Dr. Karl Jawhari shares that based on his studies, approximately 66% of patients who received chiropractic treatment experienced a significant improvement on their condition.
3. Pain management for other musculoskeletal conditions
While chiropractic care has been primarily used to help patients dealing with low back pain and neck pain, there are several other pain issues that are effectively addressed by the treatment as well. These include muscle and joint pains, headaches and migraines, and pain caused by damage to the ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Additionally, patients dealing with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia also experienced significant improvement of their condition.
4. Safe and effective complementary treatment for bodily pains caused by injuries
Chiropractic care is usually prescribed by medical doctors, especially orthopedic doctors, as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Patients dealing with musculoskeletal issues caused by injuries from accidents, sports injuries, and work-related injuries, among others, are prescribed by their physician to undergo chiropractic treatment to help with pain management, healing and recovery.
5. Routine chiropractic care may prevent joint dysfunction
Usually, patients visit a chiropractor when they are already experiencing pain, which could indicate that the condition has already progressed or worsened. Joint dysfunction, especially in the back, may not initially manifest symptoms like pain; pain is sometimes only felt when the dysfunction has affected other parts of the body. Dr. Karl Jawhari recommends consulting with a chiropractor to have your spinal condition checked, and undergo routine chiropractic treatment.
