What is Chiropractic?
Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. Based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing.
You know that your brain controls your body, 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.
We don't use drugs to treat our patients in the chiropractic world. Supplementation and nutrition are almost always part of the bigger picture; drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band aids to treat symptoms rather than the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally, prompting 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 can handle. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain but are essentially called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches, among many more.
