The Philosophy of Chiropractic is to take care of the whole person, not just their symptoms. The Mission is to restore the person to a state of normalcy so that the body can heal itself, reconnect and function at a higher level. You do not have to be in Pain to have the need for an Adjustment. Most of our patients utilize regular Chiropractic Adjustments to help them achieve and maintain a high level of Health and Wellness in their daily lives.
As a Chiropractor, I look for the joints in the Spine that have been injured or stressed and have lack of motion. Once determined, I then apply a specific force to the joint and restore motion. This takes stress out of the joint and decreases swelling in the area, allowing the Nervous System to function optimally. In our office we use our hands or a handheld instrument to make the adjustment depending on the needs of the patient.
Physically speaking, if there is an injury to the Spine, the body will try to splint the affected joints just like we would splint or put a cast on an injured arm or leg. As humans, we continue to move around the injured area which causes repetitive stress to the joint and further breaks it down over time. If this isn’t corrected by a Chiropractor, the joint becomes more “locked up” and swelling occurs which puts pressure on the spinal nerves and causes interference, leading to dis-ease to the organs or body parts that those nerves communicate with.
Emotional Stress from our thoughts and Toxic Stress from the food we eat can also negatively affect the Spine and Nervous System the same way as Physical Stress can.
