The goal of chiropractic care is to align the spine, reduce the irritation of your spinal nerves, and allow your body to function optimally without interference. The body will heal itself if given the opportunity; think about when you accidentally cut yourself. It heals in a number of weeks. The spine and nervous system are no different. With the correct alignment, your body will heal from the inside out, and you should notice significant change in weeks (or even days!).
Chiropractic care is unique in its ability to alter the function of the nervous system without drugs or surgery. It is therefore the best value, the most conservative, and the safest treatment for muscle, joint, and spinal pain.
Today's highly trained Doctor of Chiropractic has spent thousands of hours, and over eight years or more in college, earning his or her doctorate. With years of training and positive patient results, it is their job to restore your body to its optimal function and get you on the path to better health today.
Chiropractors are doctors of the nervous system- the body's master control system which coordinates all the nerves in your body, brain, and spinal cord. Nerves control the movement of your muscles, ligaments, and bones. Nerves transmit all the sensation throughout your body. Nerves control your blood pressure, breathing, and heart beat. Nerves control your bowel function and fertility. The nervous system is the master control of your entire body.
Doctors of chiropractic influence the nervous system by performing chiropractic adjustments on vertebral subluxations. A subluxation is a spinal misalignment that is irritating a nerve and causing dysfunction within the body. The dysfunction could manifest as a headache, neck pain, sciatica, IBS, acid reflux, heart arrhythmia, or urinary tract infection.
