Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors. Yet while chiropractors can and do provide a lot of assistance with back issues, they can also provide a variety of other vital health services. A chiropractor can help you devise a healthy workout routine, nutrition plan, and much more. If you're looking for a chiropractic care provider in Corsicana, TX, contact Dr. Locke Zayne at Fixin' You Chiropractic.
Besides treating injuries and diseases, chiropractors can help patients with pregnancy, aging, and other biological changes. For now, let’s take a look at some of the most common treatment methods offered by chiropractors. Of course, the list below is far from exhaustive.
Perhaps the most relied-upon tool in the chiropractor’s medical bag, chiropractic adjustments can be used to straighten out and reshape the spine. This can relieve tension and strain throughout the body. Chiropractic adjustments can be especially effective at addressing lingering pain from car accidents, sports injuries, personal injuries, and workplace accidents as well.
Some chiropractors develop specialties in nutrition. Ultimately, your diet can have a huge impact on your health. The right supplements and foods may help you not only achieve or maintain a healthy weight but can help in many other ways. You might enjoy healthier bones and joints, better sleep, more consistent energy levels, and more.
Ultrasonic waves can be used to penetrate into your skin and stimulate your muscles, potentially improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, and encouraging muscle relaxation. Ultrasound therapy may speed up healing as well.
Muscle stimulation, including the use of electronic devices, can relieve tension, thus reducing pain. Appropriately used, stimulation may encourage stronger muscles and improve overall tissue health. Electronic muscle stimulation can be especially useful in restoring strength after a car accident or similar event.

Improving Functional Health With Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic care often focuses on functional health, which means identifying and addressing the root causes of diseases or conditions. As already mentioned, for example, chiropractic adjustments can provide lasting pain relief by straightening out the spine, which could permanently reduce strain. The key to chiropractic care is often resolving underlying issues and helping the body function better.
Chiropractors can deploy other functional health treatments, such as teaching patients how to perform exercises at home that will build strength and reduce muscle tension. A chiropractor can also advise you on developing good posture and selecting furniture (e.g. living room chairs, mattresses) that provides the appropriate ergonomic support.
