Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts and sciences that emphasizes the dependency of health on the correct functioning of the nervous system. The Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) helps to free the nervous system from interference with its normal function when such interference is the result of or related to distortion, subluxation (ie. displaced vertebra), or misalignment of the bones of the spinal column.
Since chiropractic focuses on the prevention of disease, Doctors of Chiropractic offer their patients guidance in the maintenance of good health. This guidance considers many factors, including the environment, diet, exercise, rest, and stress. When corrective measures are indicated, chiropractic uses methods that are less invasive than medication or surgery.
Chiropractic deals mainly with two systems:
A) Musculoskeletal system
B) Nervous system
There is much medical research supporting chiropractic and how it benefits musculoskeletal conditions for low back, disc, neck, headaches, pinched nerves, shoulder, knee/hip injuries. Chiropractic adjustments will improve your overall musculoskeletal health. The adjustments will restore normal joint biomechanics and alignment.
This office pays special attention to stretching, trigger points, muscle balancing and the use of therapies in conjunction with adjustments to facilitate the healing process. Once the musculoskeletal system has been reconditioned, the patient will feel more relaxed, will sleep better, and have increased energy and strength.
Misalignments and subluxations will cause nerve interference, thereby causing a variety of secondary symptoms such as: pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness. Adjustments will help remove subluxations and misalignments, thereby reducing the aforementioned secondary symptoms.
