About Your Care

What is Chiropractic Care?

Life can be tough. Day in and day out stress takes a toll on the body. Stress beats you up, tightens your muscles, and makes you hurt. Stress is something that we all want to eliminate, however, in this day and age seems near impossible to do. These aches and pains are signals that the body may not be functioning properly. Most of us are aware of the meaning of these signs, and are living with some degree of pain every day. Some may even be relying on pain medication to make it through a day at work. There has to be another way of managing chronic pain without pain medication all the time. With pain medication, the pain is only being blocked rather than actually fixing the source of the pain. Over the years, with aging and stress wearing down the body, the effect is degeneration of the body and its systems – potentially leading to the need for aggressive medical treatments, and possibly invasive surgeries down the road. Chiropractic care is a way to FIX the source of the pain. Staying ahead of health issues caused by stress and rather correcting the problems, will help keep your body functioning as best it possibly can. This means optimum health, the ability to better assimilate stress, and elimination of your daily aches and pains. Chiropractic care does just this.

The body is smart. As the joints of the spine begin to shift out of position with increased stress, the process of wear and tear begins. Muscles tighten to offset the structural changes in the neck and low back, triggering symptoms such as headaches, stiff joints, and even limb pain. These problems are noticeable in basic standing posture as the body compensates to reduce strain on misaligned joints. This compensation may allow the body to feel better for a short period of time, though it is only temporary relief. The drawback of this compensation is an increase strain on additional joints, further damaging the body even more. Over time, this is how we find ourselves with a more serious medical problem. In most cases, pain is the last thing to come, and the first thing to go..

Chiropractic focuses on restoring the balance and symmetry to the joints of your spine as well as the functions of the brain and spinal cord. The central nervous system, brain and spinal cord, is responsible for each function of the human body and control every part of the human body. In order to make the body resilient again, we must realign and create a stable structure in the body. This restructuring begins with the body’s foundation - the 24 bones of the spine. Chiropractic care specializes in the spine, addressing the root of many pain problems, not merely the symptoms you have. In this process, spinal cord and nerve pressure created by the misalignment is simply reduced, allowing you a holistic way to return to your symptom-free self, allowing you to get back to what you enjoy in life.
