Chiropractic care has its foundation in the Science, Art and Philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration of good health by restoring and maintaining a properly functioning nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic care is based on the science that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine (vertebrae) protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerves.
When the bones of the spine lose their proper alignment the nervous system becomes impaired. This is called a vertebral misalignment. This causes pressure or interference with the nerve that exits the spine at that vertebral level. Each nerve that comes off the spinal cord goes to an organ or gland and a muscle. The vertebral misalignment causes the organ, gland or muscle to not function properly.
The low force gentle chiropractic care adjustments correct the vertebral misalignment which removes the nervous system interference. The adjustment also has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain. Once this nervous system interference is removed, the organ, gland or muscle supplied by that nerve is able to function properly. This is all made possible with gentle chiropractic care and other chiropractic services.
Gentle Chiropractic care helps in restoring nervous system function. Many chiropractic doctors also focus on the bio-mechanics of the body such as joint motion. Chiropractic services help to restore proper spinal bio-mechanics and improved nervous system function. Your case history is vital, as it reveals the background about your health such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition and other details which brought you into the office.
After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem your chiropractor will perform a thorough chiropractic examination. This consists of orthopedic and neurological tests as well range of motion and spinal palpation. X-rays may be taken, which will help uncover structural and functional problems. Then once the examination is complete, your chiropractic doctor will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. Progress is then monitored by your chiropractor with periodic examinations and follow-up reports. Gentle chiropractic care helps to correct any dysfunction in the body while also maintaining health by ensuring all systems of the body are working normally.
