Dr. Garcia has been an Anderson chiropractor since 1984 and has care for patients with back pain, neck pain and other forms of chronic pain throughout the years. While many people first learn about chiropractic care when they need help overcoming back, neck and extremity pain, a car accident injury, headaches and migraines and even fibromyalgia, many are surprised to learn that chiropractic care does much more. In fact, chiropractic care is really all about helping people avoid painful conditions while reaching their highest health and wellness potential through a healthy spine.
Spinal Care and Chronic Pain Management
The central nervous system is one of the very first things to develop as a baby is growing in the womb. The reason is simple: the nervous system is responsible for controlling and directing the function, growth and development of every other part of the body. When functioning as nature intended, the spinal cord travels through the spinal column, delivering a steady stream of messages to and from the brain and out to the nerves around the body. When the spine is properly aligned, these critical messages can travel freely and the body enjoys a state of health. When something happens to shift the spine out of alignment, even by a small amount, nerves become pinched and messages go awry. Eventually, these misalignments, called "subluxations", can lead to chronic pain around the body, depending on which vertebrae are involved. So really, back pain, neck pain and other forms of pain like headaches and migraines can be symptoms of a spinal misalignment. By correcting the misalignment, our Anderson chiropractor, Dr. Garcia, can help.
There are almost as many causes behind subluxations as there are people. These spinal misalignments can happen suddenly in a car accident injury, a sports injury or an accident in the home, or they can happen gradually over time as people slouch at their desks, sleep on sagging mattresses or get into other poor posture habits.
Dr. Garcia spends time getting to know each patient to understand their lifestyle habits and medical history, and gives them a complete exam to discover where a subluxation may be causing back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc. Once he knows the exact location of a patient's subluxations, he uses the precise, gentle spinal adjustment techniques that would best realign the spine into its natural curvature. This releases pinched nerves and often leads to dramatic relief from back, neck and other kinds of pain, and can even help with migraines and symptoms associated with fibromyalgia and many other chronic conditions.
In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractic care includes many other natural techniques that support the overall health of the body. We help patients with nutrition and detoxification, weight loss, fitness, and ergonomics so they can avoid future injury and become healthier overall.
