Chiropractic

Whether you are looking for pain relief, spinal correction or wellness care, our office can tailor a program to meet your needs and expectations.

The most widespread belief is that chiropractic is a treatment for back pain. While there is no drug-free alternative that is more effective in relieving back pain than chiropractic, there is much more to it than back pain.

Chiropractic was originated on the premise that the human body has an inborn or innate intelligence. This innate intelligence controls and coordinates every function of the body, from kicking a soccer ball to pumping 2,100 gallons of blood through your 62,000 miles of blood vessels every day! There is no process in the human body that is not controlled by this innate intelligence. This intelligence is expressed through the nervous system, which consists of your brain (containing 100 billion nerve cells!), your spinal cord, and your 45 miles of nerves traveling throughout your body.

This is the reason that we, as chiropractors, are so interested in the function of your nervous system. It is quite literally the connection between your mind and your body. Due to the fact that the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves are so fragile, the body is designed so that they are encased in hard bone. Your brain is safely protected by your skull and your spinal cord and spinal nerves are held within your spinal column.

Unfortunately, misalignment in your spine, called subluxation, can put pressure on your spinal cord and spinal nerves. Research at the University of Colorado has shown that the pressure of only 10mm of mercury (the weight of a dime!) will cause significant interference to the transmission of nerve impulses. What does this mean for you? It means that if you have a subluxation in your spine, you have interference to the connection between your mind and your body. This interference prevents your innate intelligence from doing its job properly. The result of this is that you experience less than your optimal health.

The goal of chiropractic care is to relieve and remove this irritation to your nervous system thereby allowing your innate intelligence to do its job properly. In other words, regular chiropractic care helps you to function at your best! A study by the Gallup Organization determined that 90% of chiropractic patients rated their treatment as effective, and 80% felt that most of their expectations were met.
