What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a heathcare system based on the holistic view that if you keep your body in a state of optimal health, your body can ward off disease and heal itself, just like it was designed to do.
The foundational tenet of Chiropractic is that your nervous system controls every aspect of your body and health. One of the main interferences to the functioning of your nervous system is Spinal Subluxation or as the medical world calls it, Joint Complex Dysfunction.
What are Subluxations?
Subluxations are joints with aberrant motion that may lead to local pain and inflammation, radiating and/or referring pain, tender points and muscles spasms as well as other neuropathophysiological symptoms that may effect seemingly unrelated areas of the body. There are numerous studies supporting the existence and adverse effects of Subluxations on the neurology, chemistry and biomechanics of your body. Subluxation has been linked to abnormal joint and muscle function that leads to injuries, to propagation of chronic pain syndromes, to symptoms that mimic or enhance the state of disease of major organs, and even to psychological disorders such as anxiety. Neuroscience studies and health care studies have been supporting the chiropractic profession for decades.
Is Chiropractic effective and safe?
Yes! Chiropractic care has been deemed safe, effective, efficient and cost-effective as compared to other systems of health care. Chiropractic care has a higher success rate than medical treatments (including surgery and physical therapy) and has been shown to reduce the number of days a patient loses at work as well as reducing the number of patient surgeries and hospitalizations. All of this, with the lowest risk of complications and/or side effects. This is something that no other healthcare practitioner can state.
