People visit a chiropractor for many reasons, often without knowing the full range of medical services a skilled chiropractor provides. As your chiropractor in San Diego, we’d like to acquaint you with what we do and how it can help you enjoy a richer and healthier life.
Chiropractic is a holistic discipline. As chiropractors we believe that with the support of the right treatment, our bodies have the ability to heal themselves, often without the need for invasive surgery or the risk of dangerous prescription drugs. Chiropractic care believes spinal wellness is vital to overall health, so dependent are our bodies on the nervous system, which relies on a healthy spine for optimal functioning. The spine transmits information from the body to the brain via sensory neurons. Signals from the brain travel down the spine and are distributed throughout the body, coordinating its functions. Spine and brain together comprise the central nervous system.
Chiropractors have long understood that proper alignment of the spine aids the body in healing itself and promotes wellness and optimal health. The human spine is prone to misalignment. Chronic pain can occur if spinal misalignment is left untreated. Chiropractic care involves hands-on spinal manipulation and other supportive treatments to remedy this condition. Chiropractors align the spine to alleviate stress on the body’s nerves and the resulting pain. Chiropractic treatment also helps aid the immune system in more effectively fighting infections and controlling allergic reactions.
Many patients first come to Dr. Brian Austin’s Chiropractic & Progressive Rehab for treatment of pain and injuries to the neck and back, often caused by sports injuries, whiplash and auto accidents. Sometimes injury and pain may just be the result of ordinary events such as poor work ergonomics or years of bad posture. All such injuries can cause back pain, neck pain and headaches. Depending upon a patient’s progressive rehabilitation plan, Dr. Austin may employ cervical manipulation, sometimes called a neck adjustment. The treatment’s goal is improvement of the neck’s functional mobility, restoration of range of motion, and reduction in muscle spasms. Success is measured by the degree of relief a patient experiences from the pain and discomforts of tension and pressure. Normally such injuries can take about two months to heal, but with sound diagnosis and progressive chiropractic treatment, they can often be alleviated in a few weeks.
Dr. Brian Austin, your chiropractor in San Diego, also has extensive experience treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These affect ligaments, joints and muscles, conditions which can trigger pain and dysfunction in parts of the body not near the source of a problem.
At Chiropractic & Progressive Rehab, we also help our patients recognize and address general health issues, part of a a chiropractor's holistic approach to better health. Well known throughout the San Diego community as an articulate champion of the lifelong benefits of wellness and chiropractic care, Dr. Austin counsels his patients on acquiring sound diet, good nutrition and reasonable exercise habits, and sometimes recommends occupational modifications.
