What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care and manipulation is the art and science of being able to discover and correct areas of the spine that are not functioning properly. By correcting these areas of misalignment, fixation, or inflammation, chiropractors can improve nerve flow throughout the body. The body has the ability to heal itself, but not when there is interference in the nervous system. The objective of chiropractic care and manipulation is to remove that interference.
Everything in the body, including muscles, sensations, and organ and gland function, is controlled by the nervous system. Chiropractic care focuses on helping to keep the nervous system healthy, which results in assisting the rest of the body to stay healthy too.
The techniques we use can also relieve joint dysfunction in the shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, and wrists. A reduction in pain and an increase in flexibility will allow you to get back to exercising, working, and living your life to its fullest potential!
Why You Should Try Chiropractic Care
If you have pain and want to avoid the side effects or complications of drugs and surgery, chiropractic is a natural and effective way to treat your pain - anything from headaches to neck and back pain to pinched nerves to fibromyalgia.
If you've experienced mental, physical, or chemical stress in your life, you might be burdening your nervous system which in turn is causing pain and possible poor overall health. A comprehensive list of daily stressors we place on our body is impossible to create, but these are the primary body stressors we treat frequently:
- previous injuries and traumas
- prolonged sitting at a computer
- chronic mental stress from work or a relationship
- ingesting all of the chemicals in our processed foods
How Chiropractic Helps
By using a hands-on approach to keep the spine moving freely and functioning properly, chiropractic helps to remove stress on and interference of the normal processing that occurs in the nervous system. Form and function go hand and hand. Misalignments of the spine, fixations within the moving pieces of the spine, inflammation around the discs or nerves, arthritic changes, and disc bulges or herniations can have a negative effect on nerve function. An irritated nervous system causes pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling, and may ultimately lead to overall poor health. But using chiropractic procedures to improve nerve function can help to eliminate the symptoms that result from nerve irritation.
