What is Chiropractic?
 

People go to chiropractors for a lot of different reasons. Some for wellness and others for pain relief. As the public shy's away from drugs and surgery and demands a more holistic approach to health care the awareness of chiropractic has grown.

Chiropractic is now the third largest form of health care in America behind only medicine and dentistry. Still only 20% of the public is either seeing or has seen a chiropractor. Most people still really do not know the benefits of chiropractic and are unfamiliar with this form of care or are just misinformed of the many benefits.

The science of chiropractic is based on anatomy, physiology, and pathology. The basic principle is that normal body function is essential to good health. Normal body function is directly dependent on a properly functioning nervous system. The nervous system is the primary controlling system of the body. It controls everything in the body. Your nervous system consists of your brain and spinal cord.

The spine is a structural - protective 24 bone functional organ with joints. Due to trauma or stress the nerves that eliminate from your spine and the joint area of the spine can get pinched or irritated. This leads to pain, spasm, and joint stiffness. Some times it can to lead to more severe conditions as well. This can include numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, even organ dysfunction.

I am trained to detect and determine the condition of your spine and locate areas of improper function. We call these lesions of the spinal joints “SUBLUXATIONS”. Areas of the spine where there is bio mechanical abnormality and improper function. We then provide gentle adjustments in the region of the spine where the subluxation is found and over time the body will improve in it's function and the symptoms subside due to the changes being made.

“When a person tells me that they do not believe in chiropractic I realize that they do not know what chiropractic is because chiropractic works whether you believe in it or not. It is based on anatomy, the structure of the body, physiology, the function of the body, and the nervous system, the controlling system of the body, along with the bodies own innate ability to heal itself.

Chiropractor's simply work with the bodies own ability to heal itself and assist it in ridding it of the nerve interference and joint dysfunction so that it can function properly. Chiropractor's treat the cause and not the symptoms.”

As a result of learning the life long benefits of chiropractic a lot of our patients come in for wellness care so that they can avoid the problems that build up over time and can lead to more serious pain, spasm, or even disease. Chiropractic is the safest most effective way to stay healthy for a lifetime. It is also the least expensive!
