What is Chiropractic? Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic 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 are just as important. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall performance suffers.
In chiropractic, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, we leave the medications to the medical doctors and in our office look for the cause behind the symptoms. Pain is a warning signal, it isn’t the problem. In treating the source of a biomechanical problem, chiropractic treats the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
While it's often perceived that the chiropractor solely treats back and neck pain, this is a small piece of what the profession is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, acid reflux, tingling in the hands and headaches among many more.
