A growing revolution in health care is a shift away from approaches that are not validated by research. Instead, scientists are urging heath-care professionals to practice “evidence-based care,” or EBC. This approach involves using care plans that are backed by scientific research.
Dr. Smith has always been an advocate of EBC. To this end, our chiropractic office remains up-to-date with research, and takes part in yearly continuing education programs.
While most people are aware that scientific research supports the use of chiropractic for conditions related to muscles and bones, many individuals are not aware of research revealing that, because they influence nerve system activity, chiropractic adjustments may prevent a plethora of other conditions.
By creating optimal nerve system flow, researchers speculate chiropractic adjustments may influence structures in the body far away from the spine, such as organs. In this way, chiropractic care may prevent a wide array of conditions. The following is a condensed list of conditions that scientific studies over the past two decades indicate may benefit from chiropractic care:
- High blood pressure
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Chest pain
- Lung problems
- Cognitive impairments
- Hearing problems
- Restless Legs Syndrome
