What is Chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care, a form of alternative medicine, centers on treating conditions associated with the neuromusculoskeletal system, specifically the spine and nervous system. Through manual adjustments, joint mobilizations, and soft tissue therapy, Chiropractors address these issues, acknowledging the interconnectedness of the body's structures. They emphasize the significance of a properly functioning spine and nervous system for overall health and well-being.

 

The Goal of chiropractic care is to alleviate pain, improve biomechanical function, and to support the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Guided by a comprehensive patient-led history,

Chiropractors also employ a range of diagnostic methods, such as x-rays and diagnostic ultrasound, to assess the musculoskeletal system,

What is an Adjustment?

When the vertebra that protect your spinal cord lose their normal positon or motion, this is known as a vertebral joint misalignment or restriction. This can result in a loss of motion, stiffness, discomfort, and even nerve symptoms.

 

Adjustments, also known as spinal manipulations, are performed that restore this restricted movement of your vertebral column at the specific joint level of hypomobility. This in return improves spinal function, decreases pain, and helps preserve the health of your spine by decreasing bone and soft tissue degeneration.
