Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, examining how these disorders affect an individual’s general health. They use a hands-on, drug-free, and surgery-free approach to your health care.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE WORKS
Your nervous system is your body’s master control system. Every nerve impulse from the brain to the organs travels a path through the spinal cord and exits the spine through the nerves. Chiropractic care identifies and corrects the misalignments in the musculoskeletal system that interfere with the nervous system. This restores the function of your nervous system, which allows your organs to function properly.
CHIROPRACTIC AND PAIN
Patients often turn to chiropractic for relief from headaches, neck pain, back pain, and pain in the upper or lower extremities, as it is very effective in combating musculoskeletal discomforts. However, chiropractic care can provide much more than pain management. That is because correct spinal alignment results in a properly functioning nervous system, which improves general wellness and helps to heal the overall body. Patients undergoing chiropractic treatment often see improvements with other conditions as well, including allergies, asthma, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, and premenstrual syndrome.
