What is Chiropractic Care?

Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing

Chiropractic care is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It’s based on the idea that the body is self­-sustaining and self­-healing.

You know that your body is controlled by your brain, but the spinal cord and vast network of nerves that carry its messages to the rest of the body are just as important. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall performance suffers.

In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band­aids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractors treat the problem naturally and this treatment prompts the body to heal itself.

While it’s often perceived that chiropractors solely treat back and neck pain, this is a small piece of what the profession is capable of healing. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are also called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches and more.
