What Makes a Chiropractor Different?

What Makes a Chiropractor Different?

If you are considering visiting a chiropractor, we invite you to visit our clinic to experience how chiropractic care can benefit your health and overall well-being.  We primarily use adjustments to manipulate and massage the spine and in so doing, solve a number of issues that are related to the spine itself as well as other conditions that could spring from a maladjusted spine. The art of spinal adjustment has been around for a long time with historical records dating back to ancient China, Egypt, and Greece showing that chiropractors or a variation thereof, have helped people for centuries. The science dates back to around 3000 years ago and we also know that the great physician Hippocrates, whose name is synonymous with the Hippocratic Oath all doctors take, also practiced a form of chiropractic treatments.

During our time practicing medicine, we have treated hundreds of patients with a historical and holistic method of treating the spine and other issues, very successfully. If you are unsure of whether or not it will work for you, the best way to find out is to schedule an appointment. There really isn’t any magic associated with chiropractic care since it is merely the identification of troubled spots and misalignments in the spine and then the use of various techniques to resolve those issues. Typically we have found that if given the right tools and guided correctly, the body will find a way to heal virtually anything by itself. As such our remedies are effective for back pain, headaches, ear infections, sinus infections, and a host of other rather common ailments because we position the body to be in the best possible health. At its core, chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects these two can have on a person’s overall health and wellbeing.

The most common reason people visit a chiropractor is back, neck, or head discomfort that will not go away. After trying medication and other remedies, many of our patients have come to us as a last option, however, we recommend visiting us at the first sign of discomfort in order to feel better quickly. We will examine the spine and proceed with spinal manipulation, which is also known as a chiropractic adjustment. These adjustments are designed to apply controlled force to the joints in the spine with the goal of restoring spinal joint mobility. Very often chronic back discomfort is caused by repetitive exercise that is damaging to the spine, or by a traumatic injury to the tissue. When this happens, the spine joints can lose some of their mobility becoming hypo-mobile and causing extreme irritation. In this scenario, your best option is to visit a chiropractor for fast relief.

When visiting our chiropractor office, you can expect to have a slightly different experience than when visiting a primary care physician.  We believe in a drug-free, hands-on approach that focuses on the patient and their overall health. Our goal is to identify what is ailing you, figure out the solution (even if it is not with us), and get you treated so that you can go on about your life in comfort and with a full range of mobility.
