What is chiropractic care?
There is nothing mysterious about chiropractic. It’s a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic care uses natural health methods such as exercise, nutrition and diet, and lifestyle modification to promote wellness.
Why do I need a chiropractor?
Your spine is designed to support your weight and protect your spinal cord, the vital link from your brain to the rest of your body. Since your spinal nerves affect all parts of your body, problems in your spine can cause other problems as well. Regular chiropractic care is one of the best ways to help prevent future or recurrent spinal problems.
Am I too young or too old for chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is beneficial for people of all ages. Many childhood health complaints are brushed off as “growing pains,” which usually are traced to the spine. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify any problems and help avoid them later in life. Restoring better spinal function can help improve mobility, vitality, endurance and appetite. Many patients report improvement with arthritic symptoms and other chronic ailments often associated with the aging process.
What should I expect on my follow-up visits?
Following your initial visit and examination, we will begin your personalized treatment program. We will review your x-rays with you and explain what is causing your pain or discomfort. On the adjusting table, we will utilize a system of body mechanics, neurological reflexes and leg length tests to check your overall spinal balance and help locate the misalignments in your spinal column. Once a misalignment is located, we will use the hand held Activator instrument to deliver a controlled, light and fast thrust which realigns the vertebrae.
