Chiropractic is based on regulating proper biomechanics of the human body. Injury, stress or repetitive movement can cause structural abnormalities which in turn can cause nerve interference.
Your nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord and many nerves. The brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord is housed within 24 moving bones of the spine. When the spinal bones or vertebra lose their normal position or motion, nervous system dysfunction can result. Chiropractic can help detect and correct nervous system dysfunction and improve health without covering up symptoms with drugs.
Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs.
A thorough patient history and examination reveal areas of the spine that may be causing nervous system malfunction. This information will be used to determine the best care for each patient.
Chiropractic care is a natural approach to better health that is proven safe and effective.
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using specific force in a precise direction applied to a joint that is fixated (”locked-up”), or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved spinal function, improved nervous system function and improved health.
Physical trauma such as improper lifting, car accidents, repetitive motion and poor sleeping habits can cause spinal problems. Emotional stress and chemical imbalances are common culprits too. Chiropractors detect these spinal problems and use controlled pressure to correct malfunctioning spinal segments to optimize your ranges of motion.
