What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the restoration of normal nerve function by improving spinal biomechanics, range of motion, reflex arc, and posture. all of which are essential to properly functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic restores joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile or restricted, as a result of tissue damage. The weight of a dime can decrease spinal transmission by 60%.
Doctors of Chiropractic correct vertebral subluxations. Vertebral subluxations interfere with the signals traveling over these nerves, preventing the body from functioning at its best. Through precise analysis, the chiropractor can locate and gently correct or reduce subluxations in the spine.
Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing.
You know that your body is controlled by your brain, but the spinal cord and vast network of nerves that carry its messages are just as important. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall performance suffers.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as bandaids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
While it's often perceived that the chiropractor solely treats back and neck pain, this is a small piece of what the profession is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches among many more.
