Chiropractic is a form of natural health care.

When all of your body's inter-related systems, including your musculoskeletal, nervous and vascular systems are in balance and functioning properly, your body possesses a remarkable knack for healing itself. This state is called Homeostasis.

Accidents, sports injuries, stress, and over-exertion, can cause your spine to fall out of its natural alignment. When this happens, your nervous system ceases to function properly. This could lead to back and neck pain, headaches, and other kinds of problems, seemingly unrelated to spinal misalignment.

This intricate physiological and biochemical interrelationship among the various body systems is what Chiropractors dedicate themselves to exploring and treating. Many types of pain and disease can be linked to problems with your spinal cord, musculoskeletal, vascular and neurological systems.

When one or more of these systems is compromised, your body fails to function normally and resistance to disease and further injury is compromised. Chiropractic also explores and addresses the areas of nutrition, exercise, as well as healthy environmental and emotional relationships. It is this “mind-body” connection that forms the tenet of the principles under which Chiropractors practice their healing art.

One of the main causes of pain and disease in the human body can be traced to improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column. This is called a subluxation. Through carefully applied pressure, massage, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints, pressure and irritation on the nerves is relieved and joint mobility is restored, allowing your body to return to its natural state of balance, of homeostasis.

What symptoms should prompt you to seek Chiropractic care?

-You have developed any kind of pain in your joints or skeletal structures such as your neck, back, shoulder blades, elbows, wrists, hips, knees or ankles.

-You have developed problems walking, such as erratic movement, loss of rhythm or difficulty with your balance.

-You have developed sensory problems such as numbness, tingling, burning, or localized pain. Sciatica pain usually radiates down one leg or another. These types of sensory symptoms are not normal and may indicate a problem with the nerves in your spine.

-Your reflexes are diminished or absent. This could be a sign that you have incurred some kind of damage to your spinal cord, nerve root, peripheral nerve, or muscle. Many people often think that they only need to see a Chiropractor when they have a back or neck pain, but regular visits to a Chiropractor help to preserve sound health and fitness. Everyday events such as improperly lifting of an object, sleeping in the wrong position, or poor posture can put strain on the spine and cause pain. Regular visits to a Chiropractor can help to keep your spine aligned and healthy.
