Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor
Our approach tries to determine the origin of your symptoms. Structural changes, inflammation and arthritis can affect the muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and every other tissue in the body.
Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, our clinicians specialize in rehabilitative exercises, advice on posture and stress management and nutritional advice. The most important aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
About Chiropractic Care
The non-invasive, hands-on approach focuses on patient examination, diagnosis and customized treatment. After a thorough examination and evaluation, we can recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises to patients as well as providing acute care and chiropractic adjustments. We also recognize the importance and health-related benefits of nutrition and proper lifestyle choices.
At its most basic, chiropractors perform a therapeutic procedure called spinal adjustment or chiropractic manipulation. Much like “cracking your knuckles”, an adjustment helps to mobilize restricted joints and improve biomechanics.
In most cases, back pain emanates from restriction, inflammation and poor biomechanics of the joints in the body. The restrictions cause irritations of the nerves, ligaments and muscles which in turn inhibits the normal function of the tissue. A gentle chiropractic adjustment is used to realign the joint, remove the restriction and restore normal motion.
Spinal Decompression has a high success rate for chronic back pain, sciatica, herniated and bulging discs and degenerative disc disease. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment.
Spinal Decompression Therapy works by gently stretching the spine, opening up disc and nerve spaces and relieving pressure on joints. As the vertebrae separate in microscopic increments, a vacuum is created inside the discs which helps to reduce bulging. Over a period of six to eight weeks, results are typically quite dramatic in their ability to provide relief.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Some of the common conditions we treat include:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Bulging or Herniated Discs
- Low Back Pain
- Leg Pain (Sciatica)
- Sports Injuries
