What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles, bones and joints) and the effects of these disorders on general health.  It is the third largest of the doctored health professions, behind only medicine and dentistry.  Chiropractic is a holistic, natural approach to health care, working to heal the body without the use of medicines or surgery.

How can chiropractic help?

Chiropractic addresses itself to numerous health care factors (nutrition, exercise and rehabilitation, etc.), but places special emphasis on care of the spine and the nervous system.  Chiropractors detect and correct the root cause of spine or joint dysfunction and the interference that causes within your body.  Our therapy is designed to help return the affected joint to normal function, as well as relieve any nerve irritation, pain, muscle tension, numbness, or tingling in the affected area, thereby allowing your body to return to its natural state of homeostasis again.  We treat your body externally while your body heals internally, and by maintaining proper spinal/skeletal alignment, your nervous system can continue to function more efficiently, which improves your overall health and reduces the likelihood of future problems.  The care and maintenance of the spine and nervous system is a very important part of any natural approach to healthcare.
