Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Doctors of Chiropractic –
By using the most cutting edge techniques in chiropractic care, physical therapy and rehabilitation, our patients not only get out of pain fast but stay pain-free for longer than just using medication and traditional therapies.
This combination of traditional and natural therapies allows our patients to truly receive the best of both worlds when it comes to healthcare today. By first focusing on relieving the inflamed and injured tissues of the spine and body, our team can then go in and strengthen and rehabilitate the area, giving our patients a much healthier spine overall.
Over the last 115 years, chiropractic care has been the leading natural and non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions. The field of chiropractic medicine continues to change and our clinic specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic care with spinal rehabilitative exercises for pain management and pain relief. Chiropractic care works by first relieving the tension or inflammation to the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain.
When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. With chiropractic care, patients not only respond to spine pain conditions, but also to conditions affecting the entire body as well.
In many cases, such as lower pack pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team
