Chiropractors offer a drug-free, ‘hands-on’ approach to health care.
For each person presenting with a problem, the role of the chiropractor is to assess the spine and nervous system and provide a diagnosis for the treatment and prevention of the problem.
Using the specific skills developed during four years of intensive chiropractic education and refined over years of patient care, each chiropractic case is managed individually.
If you are a candidate for chiropractic care, the doctor will use the most appropriate technique to adjust your spine to help you.
The objective of the spinal adjustment is to improve the mobility and alignment of specific areas of the spine.
This can be helpful in two ways:
First, the adjustment will help to alleviate the pain that brought you into the office in the first place.
Pain has many causes. Poor spinal alignment and mobility, muscle tension or spasm, joint swelling and nerve irritation to name a few. Chiropractic treatment addresses the root of these problems and can help to alleviate many painful disorders.
Second, a chiropractor is often able to detect problems even before they cause symptoms.
The chiropractic adjustment is helpful as a means to prevent pain or to enhance your overall health and well-being.
Chiropractic treatment often combines the benefits of physical modalities and therapeutic exercises to help with the correction or management of your condition.
