Hammond and Ponchatoula Chiropractor Relieves
Back and Joint Pain Without Drugs or Surgery
Significant differences exist between how a chiropractor and a medical doctor treat painful medical problems. When diagnosing and treating people with back pain, neck pain, sciatica, joint stiffness and systemic inflammation, Hammond chiropractor Dr. Shelly takes a holistic approach by focusing on and addressing the cause of the pain. He believes that to simply treat symptoms by prescribing pain relievers is only temporary and in many cases, worsens the inflammation. That's why residents of Ponchatoula, Independence, Loranger and Albany are relying more and more to chiropractic medicine for enjoying optimal overall health and well-being.
Why Chiropractic Techniques Work to Eliminate Many Forms of Body Pain
Hammond chiropractor Dr. Shelly wants his patients to understand the importance of keeping your nervous system as healthy as possible. The nervous system controls functioning of all cells, organs and soft tissues. The spinal column houses the nervous system (nerve roots and spinal cord) and is responsible for protecting it. When structural or biomechanical problems affect the spinal column, irritation caused by nerve compression forces release of inflammatory biochemicals to flood the body. This is why you can experience pain in any part of your body when your spine is not aligned correctly. After checking a patient's spine for signs of misalignment or other abnormalities, Dr. Shelly will gently correct the problem using manually applied adjustment techniques.
