What is Chiropractic Care?



Chiropractic is:

A) A form of healthcare aimed at helping your body achieve and maintian peak efficiency

  1. Chiropractic treatment helps by correcting joint movement and alignment (removing subluxations), and relieving muscle spasm. The combined effects allow your nervous system to function at peak efficiency.

B) A lifestyle choice with the goal of helping you live a happier, longer, healthier life.

  1. When joints in your body becomes misaligned (subluxated) your body requires extra energy is needed for each movement it makes; leading to:
    • fatigue, irritability, and loss of concentration
    • poor posture
    • increased susceptibility to illness and disease
    • sleepless nights
    • stiffness and pain upon walking and while working

          2.   If you ignore the above symptoms by not fixing the problem, your body has less subtle ways of saying "something is wrong,” including:

  • headaches
  • muscle spasm
  • pain in muscles and joints

         3.   When muscles and joints become irritated, they further overload the nerves that travel to those areas and nearby. The process is similiar to your computer crashing, and it causes:

  • pain or numbness radiating into hands and feet (sciatica, carpal tunnel etc)
  • migraine headaches, dizzyness
  • possible irritation of heart, lungs, liver, stomach, digestive organs...

        4.   Your body can adapt to the above changes for a while, but in time they lead to:

  • degenerative arthritis
  • irreversible loss of joint range of motion
  • chronic disease
  • more invasive and dangerous treatment protocols
  • chronic pain syndromes
  • depression

C) Chiropractic treatment is the difference between just living to be 100 years old versus dancing when you are 100.
