Chiropractic is the largest form of alternative health care in the nation and focuses on the spine and nervous system. It is the third largest health care discipline after medicine and dentistry.
Except for the cranial nerves, all the nerves that control your body pass through the spine. For example, the nerves that go to your arms and hands, thyroid gland, and neck muscles come from your cervical spine or your neck; nerves going to your lungs, heart and stomach, shoulder and torso.. muscles come from your thoracic spine or mid back and ultimately the nerves that come from your lumbar spine or low back go to your reproductive system, bladder, intestines and muscles of your legs and feet.
Daily stressors such as sports or auto injuries, work related stress or trauma, and lifestyles play a substantial role in determining the outcome of your health. These factors may create a malfunction in the spine, weaken a muscle or impair the function of an organ.
The main purpose of a chiropractor is to find the cause of the symptoms, and correct the problem by realigning the spine and other parts of the body which may be causing discomfort. The doctor of chiropractic uses the natural healing process of the body itself to heal the cause of disease without medicine or surgery.
To properly correct the problem your chiropractic treatment consists of a chiropractic adjustment to realign the spine and restore spinal integrity. Physiotherapy like ultrasound treatment and therapeutic massage may also be recommended to complement and accelerate the healing process which the chiropractic adjustments will initiate. An individually designed program of health care will be provided that fits your lifestyle.
By using the body's own regenerative powers, chiropractic takes people to a height of health they never thought possible.
