The human body is a magnificently designed and built machine. It has enormous power to repair, rebuild, and renew itself as long as it is not interfered with or seriously injured. Chiropractic care delivered at Physical Medicine of Oklahoma located in Edmond can release this self-healing power of the body and restore health and function to our patients.
To utilize this power, the human body needs a spine and entire skeleton in correct and balanced alignment. But alignment and balance can be lost. If joints lose their proper alignment due to injury or inflammation, the whole body's balance is thrown off. As a result of poor fitness, bad posture, or too much sitting or standing, the body's ability to stay healthy or heal itself can be severely impaired. Using chiropractic care, we have had incredible success in restoring the vigor and health of our patients.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
Every time we improve the spinal column's alignment or correct the balance of the body by relieving stress on the joints, the nerves of the body transmit their vital messages more easily. Fluids can flow to the organs smoothly, unhindered by stalled nerve messages. This is the optimum situation for overall health. This is how our organs receive the support they need to stay healthy. It’s also how our patients avoid deteriorating health or problems like headaches, weakness, and fatigue.
Some people think of chiropractic as only serving to relieve neck pain or low back pain. In fact, every organ and function of the body relies on the nerves that travel up and down the spine. Chiropractic care is actually a method of restoring or maintaining one’s overall health. Even a person’s mental brightness relies on the free flow of nerve messages and fluids.
Preventing Reliance on Medications
We have made it possible for so many of our patients to work with their medical doctors to end their reliance on pain relievers and other medications. In many other cases, our patients found the solution to problems like pain, digestive problems, fatigue, or depression — issues that might one day have sent them in search of medications.
Dr. Koenig of Physical Medicine of Oklahoma has completed many years of training, followed by many years of experience helping patients recover the strength and energy that should be theirs.
