Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Raleigh Flexion Distraction Center emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our wellness center.
Our specialty is the Flexion-Distraction Technique. This is a chiropractic technique where the patient is placed face down on a table and specific segments of the spine are manually (and gently) stretched. This is the secret to managing sciatica and back pain related to a herniated disc.
People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health. Visit us at Raleigh Flexion Distraction Center.
Risk factors are things that increase your risk of having a herniated disc. Some risk factors you can change, and some you can't.
Risk factors that you can change which increases your risk includes SMOKING. Nicotine and other toxins from smoking can keep spinal discs from absorbing all the nutrients they need from the blood, making disc injury more likely. Smoking also increases your sensitivity to pain.
Painkilling drugs go together with dangerous side effects, addiction and sometimes overdose. It also turns out they are also much less effective than harmless natural treatments. A new study shows that simple remedies like chiropractic treatments and home exercises relieve neck pain better than pharmaceutical drugs minus the negative side effects.
The long term benefits are equally impressive with the new study. Even a year later, patients in the chiropractic and home exercise groups were still experiencing benefits. In the opposite group having painkillers, only 38 percent reported this kind of pain relief.
Headaches are common pain problems for many people, and they are often recurring. Long use of headache medications also have side effects. Nowadays, people go to chiropractic as a natural and holistic alternative to chronic headache relief.
Chiropractic can play an important role in treating migraines. Through manipulation and adjustments of the spine and neck, migraines can often be reduced or prevented. Nerves control vascular system tension, and chiropractic adjustments reduce irritation of the nervous system beginning with its roots in the spine, also improving vascular flow.
