About Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a form of healthcare concentrating on the location and removal of a severe form of spine and nerve stress, a condition that puts pressure on nerves, unbalances your body, lowers your resistance to disease, and weakens you. This process is called the vertebral subluxation complex. The doctor will analyze your body for vertebral subluxation using their hands and other analysis tools. The doctor will then correct or remove any spinal nerve stress using various spinal adjustment techniques. 

The spine and nervous system plan an important role in maintaining and controlling the body’s biological functions and systems. Much like regular visits to your dentist to promote good oral health and prevent dental problems, regular visits to your chiropractor can help maintain good health and prevent problems and injury.

Chiropractic helps millions of people recover from sickness, disease, disability, and minimizes the use of pharmaceuticals and surgery.

Subluxations can come from stress. Subluxations can occur in infancy from the birthing process or from childhood falls and in the adult as injuries from lifting, sports, or car accidents. Later in life the emotional tension or stress can gradually damage your spine.

Nearly everyone eventually has spinal nerve stress and is affected by subluxations. Subluxations are a “hidden epidemic” and for that reason we all need to have our spines checked for this condition. Subluxations need to be addressed just like we get our eyes, teeth, and blood pressure checked.

Chiropractic is beneficial to helping people with more than just back pain. If you are having any issues with digestive troubles, sciatica, migraines, headaches, epilepsy, heart problems, numbness, jaw pain, asthma, allergies, and many other conditions, chiropractic may be right for you. More specifically females that suffer from menstrual pain, infertility, pregnancy and labor pains may also benefit from chiropractic adjustments.

Children can also highly benefit from the natural healing of chiropractic adjustments.
