Dr. Bergley has been practicing as a chiropractor for 20 years. He opened his clinic in 2011 and has been giving patients care for their health, from alternative to traditional medicine ever since. His treatments delve deep to reach the core of the problem, where patients receive care that helps heal the person's mind and body. At Isanti Family Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Bergley utilizes his expertise in alternative medicine to treat patients using a variety of modalities.
Chiropractic care is a field of medicine that entails healing injuries and promoting better overall health through spinal treatments. The foundational practice chiropractors use mostly centers around spinal manipulation, traction and other similar treatments that don't use medications or invasive procedures. The procedures help to promote blood flow throughout the body and realign the spine, which has a significant impact on flexibility, function, recovery time and the level of pain patients have. It also deals with the rest of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system since they are very much interrelated. Chiropractic treatments can even help athletes to better their performance.
Despite chiropractic care being an alternative treatment, it does have a scientific backing. More and more research is proving the benefits of this medical specialty. In fact, according to a study published by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), researchers conducted a trial on 183 patients who had neck pain. Patients received chiropractic therapy for the 52-week study. Results indicated manual therapy from a chiropractor improved the recovery time when compared to physiotherapy and care from a general practitioner. Moreover, researchers found 94 percent of those treated with manual thrust manipulation reported they had greater than a 30-percent reduction in pain. Additionally, people who underwent chiropractic therapy reduced their chances of having to have surgery.
Chiropractic care is used to treat a variety of conditions such as issues that cause back pain. For instance, those who are pregnant or suffer from sciatica as a result of a dislocated disc or another condition may benefit from a spinal alignment, hot and cold therapy, ultrasound therapy or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). A chiropractor has the ability to treat disc herniation, joint pain, muscle pain, neck pain, whiplash and neuropathy, just to name a few. Those who have issues with the tendons or ligaments may find relief from a chiropractor as well. For instance, a chiropractor has the potential to reduce pain in those who have tendonitis, tennis elbow, shin splints and carpal tunnel syndrome. Those who experience headaches and even migraines may find relief from chiropractic care.
A chiropractic adjustment conducted by a chiropractor consists of the practitioner manually realigning the discs in the spine. This particular technique takes the pressure off of injured discs and the sciatic nerve. By realigning the spine, it decreases muscle tightness and even promotes tissue healing. Oftentimes, people who undergo the treatment increase their range of motion and flexibility of their spine. It's even possible for those who have postural problems to correct them. A chiropractor may use traction to realign the spine. During this particular treatment, the patient is placed in a motorized device that stretches the spine.
A chiropractor also uses hot and cold therapy to relieve swelling and inflammation in various areas of the body. Using guided exercises, the chiropractor may help the patient recover from injuries or enhance athletic abilities. In some cases, the chiropractor may recommend lifestyle changes that can help reduce pain. For instance, the practitioner might advise the patient to make diet changes and take nutritional supplements to help with weight loss and improve a person's ability to heal.
