Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration of good health by maintaining a properly functioning nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact 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 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. Doctors of Chiropractic call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Neurologically Based Chiropractic works by "feeding" new information into the brain and nervous system, allowing the brain to re-assess it's neural image of itself, and update the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Once this nervous irritation is removed your body is able to do what it is designed to do - heal itself.
Chiropractors help in restoring nervous system function. Many chiropractors also focus on the biomechanics of the body, such as joint motion. Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. 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, a thorough Chiropractic examination is performed. Then, once the examination is complete, I will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. Progress is then monitored with periodic examination and follow-up reports.
