How Chiropractic Works

Chiropractic strengthens the body, allowing it to heal itself. Chiropractic works with the body, whereas traditional medicine attempts to force a change, working in attack mode against a disease or illness.

Too often, drugs are used to provide symptomatic relief and do not address the causes of those symptoms. Chiropractic addresses the causes by restoring movements of joints and removing interference along your nervous system. your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. Therefore, chiropractic restores and maintains communication between your brain and your entire body.

Not Just Backs and Necks

The most common misconception about chiropractic is that is it only for back and neck problems. While this is the case with a majority of chiropractic patients, about one-third of my patients come seeking relief from headaches, arm or leg pain, or computer stresses. Many patients have postural issues they want to correct, and some are injured in auto accidents.
