Chiropractic is the Science, Art and Philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration of good health, with a focus on the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, and the effects of disorders of these systems, without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Our primary treatment of conditions presented is thru the Chiropractic adjustment. This is a hands on manipulation of the spinal segments, joints and extremities. Our aim is to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, and remove nervous system stress. With these goals, your body is able to do what it is designed to do - heal itself.
Chiropractors help in restoring function and physical/mechanical stress reduction. This is achieved by focus on the biomechanics of the body such as joint motion. Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. Your case history is vital, as it reveals the background about your health such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, and other details, which brought you into the office. After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, an orthopedic, neurologic, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays and other imaging or diagnostic testing may be ordered to help uncover structural and functional problems. After your examination, we will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. Progress is then monitored and care and treatment recommendations may be updated as your condition requires. If appropriate other medical specialty referrals may be made for concurrent care or to address specialized problems not directly addressed by chiropractic care.
