A Natural Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulated, self-healing organism. The brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body control these important functions. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.
The chiropractic world focuses on allowing the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or medications. While nutrition changes and supplementation are integral parts of wellness, prescription drugs are seen as merely a temporary solution that merely treat symptoms rather than treating the underlying problem.
There is a common misconception that chiropractic is merely for treating back and neck pain. However, this is simply a small portion of what chiropractic is really capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
