Chiropractic doctors are trained to diagnose a variety of spinal, joint and soft tissue conditions that can cause pain and inlammation. Although Chiropractic care focuses on the above areas, it actually treats the entire body. Chronic back pain can be a sign of sublaxation, a misaligned or dysfuntional section of the spine. This causes stress to our nervous system and interferes with our body's natural ability to heal itself.
A Chiropractic visit can consist of a few forms of treatment, depending on the issue that the doctor is treating. This can include but is not limited to: a physical adjustment in which firm preassure is applied to a mis-aligned section of the spine, sending the vertebrae back into place, trigger point therapy, massage and advice on excercise rehabilitation.
An adjustment is often accomanied by an audible crack, which can frighten those new to this healing method. The crack is actually the release of gas or air from between the joints or vertebrae and is followed by a sense of release or relaxation.
Chiropractic care helps your nervous system work the way it should and is safe and natural. It honours the wisdom of the body and has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a centuary.
