Our doctors care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. Chiropractors are well known for helping patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches. We also help with injuries and disorders that impact the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. Benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function.
The practice of chiropractic is based on sound scientific principles. The existence of the nervous system as the primary control mechanism of the body is an undisputed scientific fact. Its relationship with the spine is the focus of the practice of chiropractic. The spine develops in utero to provide two primary functions:
- Allow for freedom of movement.
- House and protect the spinal cord.
When the vertebrae of the spine become misaligned through trauma or repetitive injury, two major consequences will result:
- The range of motion becomes limited.
- Spinal nerves emerging from the spinal cord are compromised.
Chiropractic doctors use the term “subluxation” to describe such disruptions. Interruption of nerve flow can eventually lead to pain, disability, and an overall decrease in the quality of life. Removing that interference has been shown to have significant, lasting health benefits. Through the adjustment of the subluxation, a chiropractic doctor works to restore normal nerve expression. Your body is then able to respond appropriately to any imbalance in the system, thus relieving symptoms and restoring health.
