The patients who come to us for relief from back pain or neck pain have never been to a chiropractor and don’t know what to expect.
A chiropractor is a doctor who works with your spine to correct poorly moving and badly aligned spinal bones called vertebrae. We use a variety of different methods to “adjust” your spine and un-pinch spinal nerves. This correction, or adjustment, un-pinches the nerves which come from your spinal cord (a direct connection from your brain) and go to every part of your body.
Because the entire body is controlled by your central nervous system, subluxations can not only cause pain but can also result in illness, weakness or other conditions. Many patients with problems like colds, allergies, headaches, migraines or weakness in the arms or legs respond very well to chiropractic and require no medications.
Unlike medical doctors, we do not use medication to cover or mask your symptoms, since this can lead to further injury even though, or possibly because, you may not feel the damage.
In our office, we also incorporate stability training and exercises into our treatment. By helping to get you stronger, future injuries are less likely and recovery from current problems is faster.
