What is Chiropractic?
Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing
Misalignment of joints in the body cause altered patterns of stress. When the body can no longer properly adapt to these misalignments, you may feel pain, muscle tightness, decreased range of motion or a whole host of other issues.
Taking medications for pain only treats the symptoms but doesn't address the real cause of the pain. Chiropractic treatment is not just symptoms-based, we look at the whole body to determine the cause of your pain. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.
Supplementation and nutrition almost always play a role in the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.
While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
