What is Chiropractic?

 

Simply defined, chiropractic is "practice done by hand."

Ever hear of the "power of human touch"? Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of  mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine.  Such disorders affect our general health and well being via the nervous system.

Chiropractic looks at the whole person, i.e.. how is your posture, how are you moving, are you in pain.  Then we look more closely at the joints of the body, especially the spine.  Vertebral subluxations, or misalignments of vertebrae which reduce nerve function, occur due to postural changes (tech neck, slouching, stomach sleeping), trauma, sports and overuse, and even the birth process.

People often think of chiropractors as "back/neck pain doctors" but the reality is we effect the way the entire body functions by restoring proper communication from the brain to the body.  In my practice, people report things such as their constipation clears up, breathing improves, ear infections heal, allergy symptoms decrease.  Chiropractic adjustments remove nerve interference and allow the body to heal itself.
