Dr. D Treating PatientIn the medical field today, pain is often addressed with medication and surgery. Yet there is a growing shift towards more natural solutions, including chiropractic care.

This approach to health and wellbeing is a holistic way to rejuvenate and heal the body, particularly when it comes to spinal conditions like sciatica. How can you benefit from seeing a chiropractor?

Understanding the Central Nervous System

The central nervous system, which comprises the brain, spinal cord and a network of nerves, orchestrates communication throughout the body. This system sends electrical signals between the brain and various body parts to regulate functions like breathing, movement and speech.

Yet spinal misalignments, also called subluxations, can exert pressure on the nerves and disrupt these vital communications.

Impact of Chiropractic on the Nervous System

Research shows that chiropractic adjustments have a positive impact on the nervous system, as the spine also plays an important role in overall health. By addressing subluxations, chiropractors alleviate nerve interferences and help improve communication between the brain and rest of the body. Patients often report better mood and sleep too.

Holistic Musculoskeletal Wellness

While individuals with chronic back pain often find relief and improved function through chiropractic, care extends beyond spinal health to benefit the entire musculoskeletal system. Conditions affecting the muscles, joints and bones, including arthritis, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia respond to the maneuvers of chiropractic, designed to release tension and lower inflammation in the body.

More specifically, a study in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine revealed significant improvements in joint function and reduced inflammation for those with hip osteoarthritis.

Increasing Natural Immunity

Chiropractic treatment addresses physical discomfort and empowers the body to function more optimally, enhancing immunity in the process. Your lymphatic system is activated during a chiropractic adjustment and the circulation of lymphatic fluid, which helps control inflammation, boosts the overall effectiveness of your immune system.

Furthermore, improved blood circulation resulting from chiropractic treatment can also positively impact the heart, supporting overall cardiovascular health.

Role of Nutrition In Healing

Proper nutrition complements chiropractic care, playing an essential role in the body’s healing processes. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish and flaxseeds, have anti-inflammatory properties that support joint health. Nutrient-rich foods like berries, leafy greens, raw nuts, avocados, mushrooms and artichokes can also strengthen the benefits of chiropractic.

Additionally, fundamental nutrients such as magnesium and vitamin D contribute to muscle function, relaxation, bone health and immune function.

"I still can't say enough good things about Dr. D. and his staff. My level of care remains excellent and Dr. D continues to go above and beyond to take care of my family's health, even helping my daughter find and transition to a new chiropractor when she moved out of state. Truly a practice that cares about its patients!"
Lisa C.
"Best Chiropractic center in the State. I went to three chiropractors and none of them got my lower back back into place. I went to see Dr. D. and he snapped me back to normal in the first visit. Look no further. This place is the pinnacle of Chiropractic."
Joseph B.
"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."
Matt from mission FITNESS
"I lost my cousin (who was also a lifelong best friend) tragically back in November and happened to mention it during an adjustment, and a few days later, I received a handwritten sympathy card from Dr. Joe and the team. Things like that go a long way! I recommend CHCG without reservation."
Maxwell T.
"Such a great experience in understanding and learning how to treat my chronic pain! The office staff is wonderful, informative and empathetic! Dr. D is also invested in making you to your best self! They found a convert here!"
Debby D.
"I have been a patient for over a year and have seen terrific results from my plan of care. I was introduced to the office by a friend after I told him I was having back pain. The staff and doctors have been outstanding. They took some x-rays and ruled out certain things and put me on a plan of care that helped get me straight and pain free. I can't thank them enough."
Matt U.
"At my first appointment, I couldn’t stand up straight. I am now able to go back to my regular exercise routine. The staff is very knowledgeable, very friendly and organized. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment, even when the office is very busy."
Amanda B.
"The single greatest team of professionals I’ve ever met and worked with. From the moment you step in, Brooke is absolutely wonderful and always so accommodating with scheduling and brings so much cheer to the office. Dr. Wade is a phenomenal doctor and completely transformed my back after a work related injury that showed underlying spinal conditions. I now am pain free in my day to day activities and back to my normal active lifestyle. Couldn’t recommend this practice enough to anyone and everyone."
Alexis F.
"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time."
Cassandra K.
"Been going to The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury for over 5 years and it is always been a great, safe and welcoming experience! Cannot recommend it enough."
Olivia M.
"I strained my lower back a month prior to an Ironman race. I was unable to sleep, walk or sit, never mind continue training as planned. The entire office staff is beyond kind, caring, professional and runs extremely smooth. I was explained every step and procedure, along with a patient education class that really helped me understand what was wrong with my back and steps to fix it. Dr Wade was able to get me sleeping, walking and able to compete in my triathlon. 5 stars for many reasons and would highly recommend."

It is his help that has allowed me to continue to go to work every day and provide for my family. The staff is always super accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I have never received an attitude.
