Busy, active lives take their toll on our bodies. We put tremendous physical demands on ourselves, creating structural imbalances (called subluxations). An unbalanced body can’t function at its full potential; chiropractic treatment can get things back into balance for optimized wellness. Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is only well when the nervous system is functioning at 100%. When your spine is misaligned, it puts pressure on your nerves, causing vertebral subluxations that lead to muscle tension, joint restriction, back pain, arthritic changes and nerve impingement, all of which can exist with or without physical symptoms. Doctors of chiropractic restore motion and alignment to these areas with gentle and effective adjustments, enabling the body to perform at optimal levels without injury. Chiropractic doesn’t look at symptoms or injuries in isolation. It’s a holistic practice that focuses on the whole person, considering the relationship of all the parts of your body to each other. It‘s an approach that isn’t about treating a single part of your body; it stresses the importance of a comprehensive prevention strategy that incorporates nutrition, exercise and stress reduction.
