What is Chiropractic?
Updated: Feb 12, 2019
Chiropractic is an approach to health that uses no medications & focuses on wellness.
How many healthy* people do you know who are taking painkillers daily? Multiple prescription drugs can pose a risk to your body when not properly monitored by your primary healthcare provider. Is there a better way to manage stress and pain without harmful side-effects? YES.
Everyone's health situation is unique and needs are different. That being said, there are common needs that effect our mind, body, & spirit. If you feel like you are missing out on life because of pain, or dependency on painkillers, there are SAFER alternative options to manage pain and start your wellness journey.
Chiropractic looks to the spine & nervous system for cause of disease.
Your spine is the guardian of your nervous system, so you want to take care of it! Every nerve, muscle, organ function, and brain activity are connected to one another in the awesome machine that is your body. Chiropractic keeps the lines of communication OPEN & FUNCTIONING between your brain, cord, and your body by removing interference.
This interference is called a subluxation. Subluxations of the spine are diagnosed by the Doctor of Chiropractic, and treated according to strict techniques and knowledge of anatomy in a specific, and efficient adjustment to the spine.)
Spinal maintenance involves regular chiropractic adjustments. You do not go to the dentist just one time in your life and expect to have excellent dental health. The same is appropriate for other fields of healthcare. Chiropractic Doctors, like other healthcare providers are considered specialists in their field.
You only have ONE spine. You need a specialist to care for it. Should the Chiropractor determine you are in need of referral to an orthopedic surgeon, cardiologist, oncologist, or any other doctor, we will make sure you are getting the care you need.
