Chiropractic care is a drug-free, hands-on approach to treating disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Armed with a high-level of diagnostic skills, chiropractors are able to recognize many common disorders and prescribe a natural treatment plan to bring the body back into balance and restore wellness. One of the most common treatment methods a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation involves apply force to the joints using a series of carefully planned “adjustments.” These adjustments allow the spinal column to be gradually put back into its proper alignment so that nerves are allowed to properly function and blood can flow properly. It also eliminates stresses on surrounding muscles and ligaments that can be causing the pain that initially brings you to our practice.
Chiropractic care is most commonly associated with treating back and neck pain, however it has also shown to be effective in treating:
- Bell’s Palsy
- High blood pressure
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cerebral palsy
- Degenerative joint disease
- Disc herniation
- Female reproductive issues
- Ear infections
- Pregnancy discomfort
- Temporomandibular joint syndrome
In addition to using spinal manipulation, chiropractic care also employs nutritional counseling, lifestyle coaching, corrective exercises and physiotherapy to complement the spinal manipulations and accelerate healing.
The treatments used in chiropractic care were created to address weaknesses in your body that impair healing. When these issues are corrected, your body is able to heal itself without relying on chemical-based medications or invasive surgeries.
When its deficiencies are brought into balance, your body can move itself towards total wellness.
