How does it Work?
The word chiropractic comes from the Greek word “chiropratikos”, loosely translated means ‘effective treatment by hand.’ Chiropractic theory focuses on the root cause of many diseases: the body’s reaction to changes in its environment. Rather than using pharmaceuticals or chemicals, the chiropractor focuses on locating and adjusting musculoskeletal structures of the body so that the nervous system and the body as a whole to adapt and recover from injury, illness, trauma or abuse.
Chiropractic care has helped patients for over 100 years to attain and maintain good health and mobility. They use natural methods to promote a flexible and healthy spine and nervous system. The goal of a chiropractor is to help your body provide itself optimal health and wellness. Chiropractic spinal adjustments help your muscles, joints, and nerves function properly, so your body can heal from illness and injury. It is a proven effective method to relieve pain, restore movement, reduce injury, and to slow degenerative disc disease and arthritis progression. The latest research shows that chiropractic care supports the immune system by affecting the chemicals along the spine. Chiropractic adjustments treat not just the physical aspects of the body, but also the mental and emotional tension that is held in the body. These techniques help the body recover and maintain optimal function.
Chiropractic is a non-invasive healing model. Unlike traditional doctors of medicine, chiropractors utilize spinal manipulation and other non-invasive treatments to affect the nervous systems. Ideal health is promoted through the use of adjustments, painless therapies, simple exercise and nutritional guidance.
