Chiropractic is a distinct profession revolving around the principal that the human body is a self-healing organism which facilitates health from within. Chiropractic care is a great source of relief for patients who are seeking alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs or surgery. Spinal manipulations have been practiced since ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, “look well to the spine for the cause of disease”. Chiropractors specialize in detecting and correcting the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
The subluxation involves a vertebra becoming misaligned from its natural position thus causing pressure to the spinal nerve root and affecting the musculature in and around the spine as well as the ligaments, tendons, and blood supply in the region. The subluxation can also reach deeper and further into the body affecting the associated organs affected by that spinal nerve root such as the digestive system or cardiovascular system. A pinched nerve can decrease vital neurological impulses from reaching from the brain.
The far-reaching health benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment go far beyond the treatment of neck and back pain. With specific techniques and diagnostic procedures, we can better help your spine reach its balanced state of alignment. Our holistic therapy recognizes the overall health of the patient and their body’s innate ability to heal itself from physical and mental stress. Chiropractic care is safe, reliable and reproducible. The only side effect to Chiropractic care is improved health.
