We have the highest rate of chronic, degenerative disease ever because our society has settled for pain relief as the apparent solution to their health concerns without addressing the underlying dysfunction in the body.
When only the pain relief is focused on, it leaves the part of the body that is not working properly to undergo continued wear and tear: arthritis, degenerative joint disease, among many other chronic, degenerative diseases.
We want to help you gain your health back without the use of drugs or surgery and are dedicated to helping you get better. And we want you to know:
Many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments, because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region.
While we do quickly and effectively treat back pain and neck pain, it’s not the only goal. In fact, are you aware we also treat extremities such as hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, feet, ankles, knees and hips?
By looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, you will find the same chiropractic treatment that treats back pain can also optimize your health.
As you may already know, the nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues, glands and organs; orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.
Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. This irritation can result from noxious inflammatory biochemicals released during tissue injury or may result from direct mechanical pressure.
In either case, the functioning of the nervous system is negatively influenced as is the functioning of the cells, tissues and organs which are supplied by the affected nerve(s).
The resulting ailment(s) depends on the cells, tissues and organs affected as well as the extent of the nervous system compromise.
In other words, because the body’s innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.
Today, there are many methods used by chiropractors to correct spinal misalignments, joint dysfunctions and subluxation complexes. Many techniques are identified by the name of the person who was most instrumental in their development. In 1889 in Davenport, Iowa, David D. Palmer gave his first adjustment. Chiropractic has come a long way since then.
