Why Choose It?
Chiropractic is the
method of natural healing most chosen by those seeking complementary/alternative
health care for acute and chronic conditions.
While you may first
visit a chiropractor to relieve pain in the lower back or to treat sciatica,
neck pain, whiplash or headache, you will find that a chiropractor views you as
a whole person and not the sum of your parts. A chiropractor will work in
partnership with you to ensure your optimal health and wellness.
Triggers your body’s ability to heal
that many factors affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep,
environment and heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health
naturally to help your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the
symptoms of disease.
Starts with a thorough evaluation
When you visit a Doctor
of Chiropractic, you will be evaluated using time-honored methods, including
consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and X-ray
examination. In addition, you will receive a careful chiropractic structural
examination, with particular attention paid to the spine.
Involves no drugs or surgery
A broad range of
techniques are used to locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral
misalignments (subluxations) in the spine. Chiropractors may use manual
adjustment, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound or massage. But they
never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery. Chiropractic is a natural
method of healing that stimulates the body's communication system to work more
effectively to initiate, control and coordinate the various functions of the
cells, organs and systems of the body.
Partners with other healthcare professionals
Doctors of chiropractic
work in tandem with other healthcare professionals. If your condition requires
attention from another branch of the healthcare profession, that recommendation
or referral will be made.
