Doctors of Chiropractic are primary contact health care professionals. Chiropractors focus on the spine in relation to the total body and specialize in the understanding and treatment of its component bone structures, muscles, and nerves. No referral is necessary to consult a Chiropractor.
Chiropractors believe that correcting the cause of the problem provides significant long-term benefits over only treating the symptoms.
Using a number of unique and highly refined skills, the chiropractor checks the patient's spine and other bony articulations for any misalignments, fixations, or other abnormalities. If abnormalities are detected, the chiropractor will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area.
Because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it's not the only goal. Chiropractic care involves spinal and extremity adjusting techniques, physical therapies, soft tissue therapies, dietary and nutritional counseling, exercise and fitness counseling, and many other safe and natural methods to improve health and prolong a vibrant and productive life. The objective is to restore and optimize human health.
You may be wondering... how can the same chiropractic treatment which effectively treats my back pain also optimize my health? The answer can be found by looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.
Because of the intimate relationship between the spine and the nervous system, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. This irritation can result from noxious inflammatory biochemicals released during tissue injury or may result from direct mechanical pressure.
