Chiropractic Treatment



Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that restricted movement in your spine can lead to pain and reduced function. Spinal adjustment (manipulation) is one form of therapy chiropractors use to treat restricted spinal mobility. The goal is to restore spinal movement and, as a result, improve function and decrease back pain. During an adjustment, we use our hands to apply a controlled force to a joint – pushing it toward its normal range of motion. Sometimes we use different instruments. The joint’s movement may be accompanied by a “popping” or “cracking” sound. We might also use massage and stretching to relax muscles that are shortened or in spasm. There are additional treatments as well, such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and certain mobility exercises. (The Mayo Clinic)

Starting out let me address one important thing: Low back pain typically improves within a matter of weeks, even for people who seek NO treatment at all. That statement is true to a point, but that’s only if you’re someone treating the SYMPTOMS. What you’re most likely dealing with is something called a SUBLUXATION, NOT A SYMPTOM! Medical doctors TREAT your symptoms, hence the medications they give you. At this office we find the cause of your problems, which is usually stemming from your back and spinal nerves. The Mayo Clinic is correct in saying, “it takes time for your back to heal.” That is 100% TRUE. But I think they should have said, “it takes time for you to grow accustomed to your pain”. That would be a truer statement. At this office we are here to get rid of your problem – NOT treat your symptoms!

It’s been proven that if you have a silent subluxation, (a misalignment in your spine that doesn’t have to cause you any pain at all) in your spine and that’s corrected over time, your nervous system will “function better.” What that means to you is this: When your nerves function better, your organs function better. If you have a engine that idles rough, and needs a tune-up, you had better get it tuned up or your gas mileage is going to suffer. The same goes for your body. Either keep it tuned up or your body will ultimately malfunction and that can only mean conditions and dis-ease. Don’t wait until you’re bed ridden or in a lot of pain. Call now for a check up.
