About Chiropractic

What is chiropractic?
The goal of chiropractic is to stimulate your body’s own remarkable resources to help it heal and function better. Chiropractic is a hands-on, drug-free healthcare approach. Millions of people have become healthier using chiropractic principles of healthy diet, exercise, and maintenance of proper spinal function.
How can chiropractic help me?
People often seek chiropractic care for relief from injury, stress, or chronic pain. Chiropractic treats the underlying causes of these problems, rather than just relieving the symptoms. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help correct problems that interfere with your body’s natural state of good health.
Your body’s self-regulating and self-healing functions are controlled by your nervous system.  The spinal cord is the central message carrier for your nervous system. Problems with the bones that protect the spinal cord can impair nerve flow. When the nervous system is impaired, tissue and organs throughout the body may not work correctly. Doctors call this degenerative chain reaction the vertebral subluxation complex. It is an underlying cause of many health problems.
Today’s Doctor of Chiropractic is highly trained in identifying and evaluating functional problems associated with the spinal column. He or she is also skilled in restoring proper spinal biomechanics and nerve function. With a program of regular spinal maintenance, many patients recover their health and vigor and often feel better than they did before their problem occurred.
What can I do?
Your doctor can teach you proper sitting and lifting postures. Specific exercises to strengthen and retain the muscles supporting your spine also may be recommended. While you are healing get as much rest as your body needs. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. If you are overweight, reduce stress on your spine by losing some extra pounds.
Most importantly keep all of your appointments with your doctor and follow your doctor’s recommendations for the best results.
Who can benefit from chiropractic care?
People of all ages can enjoy healthier living through chiropractic care. When the body is changing through growth or through aging, maintaining good spinal and nervous system health is especially important.
Children and even infants can also benefit from chiropractic. Because spinal trauma can occur at birth, and later childhood activities may cause spinal problems. Many parents have their children’s spines checked regularly.  For seniors, improved spinal function can mean better mobility, endurance, appetite, and an improvement in many age-related ailments. The safe, natural chiropractic approach to health maintenance makes sense for people of all ages.
