Chiropractic Care: 101

Chiropractic care is a holistic form of healthcare.

Chiropractic looks for the causes of your health issues and fixes them from the inside-out instead of just treating the symptoms you experience.

Headaches for example are a symptom of either dehydration, lack of proper nutrients, bad postural adaptations putting strain and stress on the joints and muscles of the neck, etc.

If you take pain medication to relieve the headache it can suppress the symptoms for a while but until the actual cause of the issue is solved you could experience the same symptoms again.

Chiropractic-care is focused on finding the source of your health issue.

That means correcting it from the inside-out!

Chiropractic can be a complementary medical approach to mainstream medicine as well, and it’s been proven to be one of the safest approaches to naturally and holistically treating patients with a wide range of symptoms or conditions, including: back or neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, acid reflux or digestive issues, headaches, high blood pressure, injuries and neuromusculoskeletal complaints that may require surgery.

What does a chiropractic adjustment do?

Chiropractic care is a very holistic, safe, and non-invasive treatment that addresses mis-alignments of the joints in the spine that put pressure on the nearby nerves exiting the spinal vertebra.

This pressure irritates the nerves and causes dysfunction of the central nervous system.

A chiropractic adjustment removes the mis-alignment and restores function to the nervous system.

What’s that loud popping/cracking sound?

The popping or cracking sound you hear during adjustments comes gasses being released from the joints.

For the joints to glide past each other they are covered by a capsule that produces synovial fluid which lubricates the joints.

When a joint is not properly moving, gasses form in the joint and are released when the adjustment takes place.

Who needs to be adjusted?

Everyone can benefit from regular adjustments.

From babies to the elderly and everyone in between.

Chiropractic care boosts immune function so that you don’t get sick as often, nervous system function to keep the brain and body communicating optimally, athletic performance for split-second decision making, coordination, and so much more.

Everyone deserves to have their body functioning at its fullest potential!
