About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine that are affecting the nervous system and overall body function.

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 part of 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 outcome has been miraculous.

Why Adjusting the Spine Affects Overall Health?

The spine serves to house and protect the central nervous system.  Most of the peripheral nervous system exits through the spine to control every aspect and function of the body.  The spine also serves as a framework for the muscular, ligamentous, and osseous systems.  Blood vessels to the brain and other areas travel close to (or within in the case of the vertebral arteries) the spine.  Modern studies are showing the spine closely tied to flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF-the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord).  

When the spine is out of balance (subluxated), it adds stress to the body and can interfere with other body systems.  When the spine is subluxated chronically, the body can deteriorate into disfunction and even disease.  Chiropractic does not treat the disfunction and disease.  Chiropractic is concerns itself with the correction of a subluxated spine and with maintaining a balanced spine.  When a balanced spine is maintained, disfunction and disease that are a result of the subluxation will decrease because the body is now able to heal itself.
