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.

Traditional medicine and the American public are finally catching up to the chiropractic view on health. For more than 100 years, the chiropractic approach has warned against drugs, smoking, stress, poor posture, junk food, and unnecessary surgery.
Chiropractors have always emphasized the connection between mind & body and the importance of maintaining a strong immune system, reminding us that we are responsible for our own health.
Chiropractic makes sense. It's scientific. It's provided by well-educated doctors. It's safe and natural. It aims to correct the underlying causes of your health issues and to prevent future problems. Most importantly, it works.
Dr. Gaertner opened his practice in Chapel Hill in 1995, where he practiced for 20 years before relocating to Carrboro.
