Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care approaches health concerns in a way that is different from what you’ll encounter in the medical community. Yes, we help our patients with their symptoms, but we are not going to do so with either prescription drugs or surgery. More significantly, we are not even going to wait for symptoms to occur to evaluate you to see if chiropractic treatment can help!

All chiropractic care is aimed at improving the communication between the Central Nervous System and the rest of the body. Think of it as making sure that your brain is as well-connected to every other part of your body as possible. This connection happens via the Peripheral Nervous System branching everywhere throughout every tissue, and the branching first occurs around the complex system of articulations that make up the spinal column. Chiropractors use their extensive knowledge of the spine to affect the functionality of the body. It turns out that when the joints of the spine are optimally functional there is less local inflammation and swelling that can adversely affect the communication effectiveness of the Nervous System.

Yes, our body is coordinated and controlled FROM THE INSIDE… by our Nervous System. Making sure that there is as little interference to this system as possible makes it more likely that your own body’s resources will successfully maintain your health. What does this mean to you?

Most research about Chiropractic care has focused on its ability to alleviate back pain, headaches, and radiating pain into the arms or legs. Because of that focus, it is often easy to limit the things we think that Chiropractic can help with. Sure, if you have a back that bothers you, get straight to the Chiropractor’s office and get some relief! But beyond that, if you are interested in having optimal health and preventing symptom development… if you are interested in functioning optimally… if you want to avoid pain, illness, degeneration, and injury from normal activities let Chiropractic help you in that endeavor.
