What Is Chiropractic?
Chiro- : of the hands
-practic: the way of doing something
"Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on the disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the defects of these disorders in general health" -American Chiropractic Association
We use Palmer package techniques to adjust the spine and extremities. The concept is that the musculoskeletal system's proper alignmentwill allow the body to restore itself without the need for medicine or surgery. We use adjustments to restore nerve flow and mobility to joints inhibited by tissue damage caused by repeated stress, a fall, or poor posture. We provide treatment mainly for the restoration of nerve flow and relief of pain in muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, etc.
To restore proper nerve function and relieve your pain, we have to obtain your full medical history, conduct a physical examination, and utilize diagnostic imaging to deduce the most effective treatment plan for your condition. The treatment strategy may comprise one or more adjustments in which our doctors adjust the joints, using regulated, abrupt force to boost range and quality of movement.
We also integrate nutrition, exercise, physical therapy, stretch rehab, and supplementation into the treatment plan. The length of chiropractic treatment or the number of sessions will depend on the complexity of the health concern being addressed. Most patients experience an improvement from each chiropractic visit. Our objective is to restore your body to its optimal state.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
The nervous system - the brain and the spinal cord - control every aspect of the body. When there is a misalignment of the spine or other joint, this restricts nerve flow. When nerve flow is restricted, dysfunction follows. Dysfunction of the body presents not only with pain, but also headaches, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, numbness, tingling, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, colic, constipation, bedwetting, latching issues in nursing infants, etc. With chiropractic adjustments, this nerve flow restored, and the body's innate intelligence can take over, allowing your body to function at its optimum level, ridding the body of these ailments.
Our chiropractic care can help patients find relief from their acute or chronic pain. Research has also demonstrated that chiropractic care is beneficial to all ages of patients- including newborns to the elderly.
