What Is Chiropractic? 

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls every function in the body. The spine is the protective housing for the spinal cord, which transports messages from the brain to every cell in the body. We usually notice this problem in the form of pain, but it can also show up as weakness in muscles, headaches, or maybe abnormal digestion, just to name a few symptoms. Chiropractors locate misalignments or restrictions in the spine and correct them, thereby allowing proper communication in the body. When this is done, symptoms usually go away! 

What does that pain mean?

Pain in your body is a warning signal that something is wrong and needs attention. Just as you would not place a piece of masking tape over the “check engine” light in your car without finding out why it is lit up, you should not ignore your pain or just cover it up with medication. Pain is your “check engine” light. We can help by finding the source of the pain and correcting it. Headaches, arm pain, and leg pain can all arise from problems ocurring locally in the spine. If there are spinal misalignments causing pain, no amount of pain medication, muscle relaxers, or anti-inflammatories will correct the problem. We specialize in correcting the problem. Putting off treatment for your pain can lead to larger problems in the future. Find out now how we can help you! 

Wellness and Prevention

This is the ultimate state of true “Health”. When you are not experiencing any symptoms, chiropractic can help you maintain that state of well-being. We take our cars in for periodic tune-ups, why should we not treat our bodies at least as good as that?  Wellness Care keeps you going.  If you ask a regular chiropractic patient about sickness, they will most likely report that they rarely suffer from things like flu and colds, That is because regular checkups and adjustments boost your immune system and prevent problems before they happen. It just does not make sense not to get checked by a chiropractor on a periodic basis. Our wellness plans consist of “tune-ups” once a month. This type of care has been proven to save patients money in the long run.
