Chiropractic treatments are a non-drug dependent, manual approach to treating spine, pelvic, joint and nervous system related disorders. Some symptoms may include chronic headache, chronic pain and inflammation in joints, stiffness or tightness, trouble sleeping through the night, and more. Our primary goal is to decrease pain and improve areas of reduced motion through adjustments and regular treatments, as well as to give advice on a healthier and improved lifestyle. Your brain is the “computer” that controls every function of your body. It sends signals through the spinal cord and its nerve extensions to your muscles and organs. Every move you make and every function your body performs all occur because of the impulses directed from the brain through the spinal cord.
Your spinal cord is protected by your spinal column which is made up of individual vertebrae, each separated by a cushioning disc. Nerves exit from the spinal column and network out to all your muscles and organs.
When your spinal column is subjected to unusual stress, such as an accident, poor posture, or long term tension, the vertebrae can slip. This can cause symptoms of backache, tingling in the arms and legs, headaches, fatigue, improper digestion and other organ dysfunctions.
Chiropractic locates these subluxations and through gentle adjustments can restore your body’s normal functions. With nerve passages open and regulatory impulses free to pass, your body miraculous nervous system can heal without drugs. Pain medication is designed to mask symptoms, not cure causes. If your car began making a loud knocking noise, would you turn up the radio until you could not hear the noise and then consider the car fixed? Of course not, yet that is essentially what painkillers are designed to do. Chiropractic finds the root of the cause, and relives your pain by solving the problem not masking the symptoms.
