Understanding Chiropractic Care

Although you may have heard of chiropractors, you may be wondering what they do. You may want to know why heading to your Beaverton, OR chiropractor is a great idea. What benefits does chiropractic offer you?

Your Body is Like a Car

Perhaps the easiest way to describe chiropractic care is with the help of a car analogy. Owning a car necessitates routine maintenance to ensure that it continues to run well. In addition to regular check-ups, in some cases you may be forced to take it in for repair, like when a part stops working or after an auto accident.

This is not all that different with your body. Pro-actively taking care of yourself is the best, but sometimes you have an accident (like a fall or an auto collision) and you must check in with a doctor to repair the injury.

One big difference between your vehicle and your body though is that your car can be replaced. With your body, there's no going out to get a newer one or exchange it after too much damage. So, keeping your body in excellent condition should be a top priority if you expect it to look great and run smoothly well into the future.

How Your Beaverton, OR Doctor of Chiropractic Can Ensure Your "Car" is in Excellent Condition

Because a chiropractic physician focuses on spinal health, getting consistent care will allow you to accomplish and keep good health. It will decrease your chance of suffering from back and neck pain that can lower your quality of life. Chiropractic care also keeps your body running as effectively as possible.

Your spinal column protects the spinal cord which forms a connection between your brain and all of your organs, muscles, and tissues via the spinal nerves that branch out into every part of the body. So, if you have a misaligned spine, other parts of your body are affected. Given that a spinal misalignment upsets the central nervous system, other systems — like your digestive, respiratory, or reproductive systems — may not work perfectly either.

So make seeing your Beaverton, OR chiropractic doctor a top priority. Call (503) 642-2845 to set up an appointment with Dr. Bhasin today. You'll be in great hands – regardless of whether you are just looking for maintenance or need a repair!
