What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a science dedicated to the human body. Chiropractors study the relationship between body structures (mainly your spine) and bodily functions (primarily your nervous system). When balanced, these vital systems interact to preserve or even restore your health.
Chiropractic doctors don’t prescribe drugs or perform surgery. Instead, chiropractors respect the inherent power of your body to heal itself. We also understand and respect the fact that some patients do need drugs and surgery to recover from particular conditions and we work together with your medical providers to achieve the best results possible. A chiropractor will help guide your body to health through the adjustment of your spine and other joints. Chiropractic hands-on manipulations help:
- Treat mechanical restrictions (dysfunctional joints)
- Increase your range of motion
- Eliminate excessive strain on your muscles
- Block pain impulses and increase your comfort leve
Usually, several chiropractic treatments are needed to achieve long-lasting results and long-term pain relief. Yet chiropractors are like most healthcare providers — the best ones have a large toolbox of techniques they can apply in response to health issues.
