What is Chiropractic Care?
When you go to a chiropractor for the first time, you may be unsure of what to expect. Chiropractic adjustments align the skeletal system properly so that the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and organ systems affected by skeletal alignment can function properly. Chiropractic therapies go beyond a quick adjustment; chiropractic health care is holistic in nature, meaning you will get treatment and advice for your body as a whole, not just for an isolated problem.
What is Subluxation Therapy?
When the vertebrae of the spine are not aligned properly, this is a form of therapy applied as an effort to return the vertebrae to a natural and healthful alignment. Chiropractic care involves hands-on manipulation, massage, traction, toggling of the head or shoulders and the application of pressure through machines or hands. All of our methods are safe and gentle.
How Effective is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care has been studied extensively and deemed effective for a wide range of medical conditions, including but not limited to:
- Headaches (including migraines)
- Cramps and PMS
- Sinus pain, earaches, colds and allergies
- Spinal or disc problems
- Vision problems
- High blood pressure
- Digestive problems
- Heart problems
- Back, shoulder and neck pain
The above list may seem long, but remember: chiropractic treatments work through the enhancement of health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress. Most textbooks list over 200 conditions. Chiropractic is a complete healing art within itself, concerned with the systems of the body such as nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, eliminatory, reproductive, hormonal, musculoskeletal, etc. As such, it seeks to correct health problems within those systems.
