Whether you are a newborn, pregnant, a young adult, or a senior, chiropractic care is for you. Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the spine, nervous system, and joints of the extremities. Your spine provides the stability and mobility of your body and the protection of your nervous system, which controls and regulates every cell of your body. When your spine is out of alignment from common stresses of daily living, your nervous system is compromised, which ultimately impacts your overall health and wellness; including but not limited to neck pain, low back pain, disc issues, shoulder pain and restrictions, stiffness, headaches and migraines, pregnancy-related issues, digestive concerns and insomnia.
Various stresses that can affect our nervous system are categorized as physical, chemical and emotional. Examples of physical stress include accidents, improper posture, excessive use of the phone, lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle. Chemical stresses build up from one’s diet, smoking, lack of water, excessive caffeine or lack of various nutrients. Emotional stresses are the most common, have the strongest effect on the nervous system, and is a cause of many health issues, yet it is the most commonly ignored.
After a very comprehensive examination, including a computerized spinal scan, very gentle and precise hands-on treatments are used to align the spine. This reduces the pressure on the nervous system, improves joint mobility, and reduces muscle spasms and pain. Ultimately, with each adjustment or treatment of the spine, your nervous system heals, awakening your inner natural healing potential. Your body starts to function at its optimal level, eventually pain-free!
