Chiropractic health care is the largest, drugless health profession in the United States with approximately 60,000 Doctors of Chiropractic(DC). Beginning in 1895, it was founded on the principle that the health of the body is dependent on the optimal function of the nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates all body functions. Interference of the nervous system disrupts the communication within the body. A common area of nerve interference is where the nerves exit the spine. The vertebre of the spine can misalign, get stuck or not move correctly causing nerve irritation. This is called a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by stressors such as trauma, toxins, poor eating habits, and mental/emotional stresses. There are many approaches or techniques within chiropractic to remove the subluxations and restore spinal function. As the nerve pressure is reduced, the proper communication from brain to body tissue and back again is restored and health returns.
Most people seek a chiropractor for relieving musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. It is important to determine the source/cause of the pain. Without identifying and correcting the cause of the symptom, the symptom will likely reoccur and worsen over time. The medical approach is generally to prescribe medication for pain, inflammation, and/or muscle relaxation without addressing the cause of the problem. There is nothing wrong with taking medication when symptoms are severe but, because the cause is not dealt with, the condition will usually become a bigger problem over time. We look forward to assisting you in a healthier path for pain relief.
