IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE RIGHT FOR ME?
Chiropractic care is great for everyone! Completely natural and non-invasive,chiropractic adjustments bring balance to the body, alleviate pain and discomfort and restore optimal health. Men, women, pregnant mothers, children and the elderly can all benefit.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our bodies are constantly striving to achieve homeostasis – the physical state where we function optimally. This Innate Intelligence is incredibly powerful and we believe that when the spine is properly aligned, the body is able to adapt to its environmental conditions, become more resilient and thrive. As the body’s nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body, it sends impulses and information through the spinal column. Whenever the body encounters stress – whether physical, chemical or emotional – the nervous system is affected, often resulting in the improper alignment of two apposing joints or vertebrae. These “subluxations” put pressure on the spinal nerves and can often lead to a variety of symptoms: from back pain and headaches to fatigue, sciatica and digestive disorders. Chiropractors can also address conditions like osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains and strains.
Chiropractors are the only healthcare professionals that locate and correct subluxations by gently realigning the spine, removing interference in the nervous system and allowing the body’s Innate Intelligence to direct the self-healing process. Through a series of specific chiropractic adjustments, the body is returned to homeostasis so it can best adapt, respond and express its natural health to its fullest.
DO I NEED CHIROPRACTIC CARE IF I’M NOT IN PAIN?
Most people seek chiropractic care when they experience back or neck pain, but these kinds of symptoms can often be misleading. Even though the pain may express itself in one place, the true cause of the imbalance may exist elsewhere in the body.
