Loveland Chiropractor

The Key to an Active and Healthy Lifestyle

Your body was meant to move and be active. You were born to be an athlete. Modern-day lifestyles and workplace environments limit the body’s movement, which leads to increased wear and tear on the body. Call now to book your first visit with Dr. Erickson at our Loveland chiropractic office.

Are You Ignoring Warning Signs? 

Your body’s priorities are to function at its best, and to let you know when you are heading for trouble. What may first appear as muscle or joint stiffness can progress to soreness and achiness, and then to debilitating pain as the body and joints slowly breaks down.  

Pain not only affects your activity level and inhibits communication throughout the nervous system, but also interrupts sleep and your ability to deal with the demands of everyday life. We simply are not as much fun to be with, or as happy and productive as we can be, when we are in pain. 

Chiropractic care can provide remarkable results to treat and prevent pain.

Sitting is “the new smoking”… 

According to the Heart Foundation, people who sit “the most” compared to those who “sit the least” are at an increased risk of death and disease: 112% for diabetes, 147% for cardiovascular events and 90% increased risk of deal from cardiovascular events.

What is Chiropractic Care? 

The absence of pain is not an indication of health. Pain has a cause and many times that cause begins with the spine. Over-the-counter pain medications and / or prescriptions may only serve to mask the pain. 

Your daily activities can cause joint pain and dysfunctions in the spine and extremities. These joint dysfunctions can cause decreased joint motion, inflammation and decreased function in your body. Inflammation is the body’s first-line, natural defense against injury and infection. Just as an infected cut can turn red and painful, damaged tissue and muscles can also become heated and inflamed when under stress; aggravating nerves and causing pain. Decreased joint motion can also affect your ability to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. 

When the cause of inflammation continues the inflammation becomes chronic. Chronic inflammation is damaging and contributes to the pain. 

Instead of covering up the symptoms of pain, Chiropractic focuses on the  cause of pain and inflammation, by addressing the misalignments in the body that lead to the development of pain and loss of function. Using hands-on techniques to realign the body’s spine and musculoskeletal system, Chiropractic treatments alleviate stress on tissue, bone and muscle so they heal properly; easing inflammatory pain and allow ease of movement. 

Whether pain is caused by injury, aging, repetitive stress or another traumatic event, Chiropractic treatment can be beneficial toward treatment and recovery. 

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Your spine is made up of 24 independent vertebrae, allowing your body to move, twist and bend through the routine activities of your day. It also helps protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body. Joint restrictions, also known as “subluxations”, can get in the way of proper nerve communication from the brain to the body — often resulting in pain and discomfort. 

Chiropractors locate and correct these joint restrictions and apply a gentle, targeted movement to the body’s spinal column and extremities, where and when indicated. This is commonly known as a chiropractic adjustment.

What Sort of Education and Training is Required for Chiropractors? 

Educational requirements for chiropractors are among the most stringent of any health care profession. Chiropractors typically have 4 years of college, followed by a required 4 years at a professional chiropractic school. Because of the hands-on nature of chiropractic, a significant amount of time is spent in clinical training. 

Many people are surprised to learn that the educational requirements to become a Doctor of Chiropractic are very similar to those required to become a medical doctor.
