Call for an Appointment:
Normalization or Restoration of Body Function, through adjustments of the joints of the body. Using a holistic approach and checking everything from the skull down to the tips of the fingers and the toes, enabling the body to do what it does best: repair and restore homeostasis.
Routine visits to the chiropractor, help to maintain that function, enabling you to meet the demands of your daily routine with enthusiasm. When you do something less than optimally in your routine, you will feel discomfort or even pain, but your reaction to that incident will be less severe if you maintain the body on a regular basis, rather than allow yourself to decline in function, and then require emergency chiropractic care later.
“When in sickness, look to the spine first.” -Hippocrates
Chiropractic is a total system of treatment that focuses on restoring your health with hands-on care. Instead of treating symptoms with prescriptions or invasive surgery, like traditional medicine does, chiropractic care works with your body to restore your natural healing systems and make you feel better.
Chiropractic is based on the understanding that your nervous system has a big impact on your overall health. Your spine is the cornerstone of your body. It houses the spinal cord, which allows your brain to transmit messages to the rest of your body through the nervous system. The spine is strong but also very flexible; it can bend at multiple joints in each of your spine’s segments.
These joints can get out of position through normal activities, like sitting at the computer, or more serious injuries, like throwing your back out. When the nervous system is disrupted from spinal problems, your health suffers. It prevents your brain from being able to effectively communicate with the rest of your body.
By aligning the spine and the other bones in your skeletal system, a chiropractor can achieve a level of healing in your body you can’t experience with traditional medicine. Through gentle manipulation of the spine, a chiropractor can re-align your spine so you feel better and your body can heal itself.
Chiropractic care is commonly sought out for:
- back pain
- joint pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
It can also be very effective in treating non-musculoskeletal conditions like:
- digestive disorders
In addition to gentle spinal adjustment, a chiropractor may also use ultrasound and massaging implements to help relax the body and restore health.
After an initial evaluation that lasts about an hour, regular chiropractic appointments typically lasting 10-15 minutes are recommended based on your body’s ability to maintain itself.
