Chiropractic Care is the holistic art of healing the body without taking anything away from the body (surgery) or adding anything to the body (drugs). Chiropractic achieves healthcare goals through adjusting the spine, head and extremities. Because the nervous system controls, maintains and regulates all body functions chiropractic is the best way to access the body's control center without any invasive procedures or side effects.
There are countless aliments that can be treated through Chiropractic care. The following lists the most common:
- Neck pain
- TMJ pain
- Emotional Disturbance (fight/flight)
- Mid/Low back pain
- Hip pain
- Auto/work-related injuries
How is this done?
Chiro-"hands" practic-"practice". A Chiropractor uses the hands in various techniques to adjust the spine, the articulations of the spine, head and extremities to allow the nervous system to freely do its job. And that's a pretty big job since the nervous system controls everything.
I don't want to get popped!
Rest assured. It's only gas. The popping sound that you may hear is liquid in the joint (synovial fluid) which changes from a liquid to a gas and back to a liquid again. This chemical reaction causes the sound and not bones popping, breaking or cracking.
Who can benefit from Chiropractic care?
Anyone! That's right. Anyone from an infant to geriatric patient can increase the quality of life and/or get back to your old self through Chiropractic care.
