Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.
What is Wellness Chiropractic?
More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a chiropractic office, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.
Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, and stress relief. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcomes have been miraculous.
Speciality Chiropractic Adjustment Equipment
We use a mix of specialized equipment including computerized decompression traction unit, drop tables, Graston tools, fit balls, foam rollers and more. This equipment is designed specifically for reducing pain and inflammation. The highly advanced equipment promotes correct technique and appropriate resistance levels. We provide targeted exercises to work on key areas and see improvement.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic is a natural form of healthcare that is effective at relieving tension developed in the joints. Tension can develop in any joint but it is most commonly found in the spine where it can easily build up and cause neck and back pain. Tension is often caused by slight misalignment of the spine which can be caused by postural dysfunction.
Chiropractors correct misalignment using adjustments, a precise controlled force delivered to the specific misaligned vertebra to relieve tension, restore movement, and decrease nerve pressure. Once proper nerve transmission has been restored, your body will naturally disperse inflammation and reduce in pain levels.
Our chiropractic doctors primarily use the diversified adjusting technique. This technique uses motion palpation of the joint to find the misaligned vertebra. A safe manual adjustment is then performed. There will often be a “cracking” or “popping” sound, which is created by the sudden drop in joint pressure and by the shifting of joint fluids and gases.
