Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive form of health care that focuses on the restoration and maintenance of spinal health in order to allow optimal nervous system function. Virtually every part of the body is affected by the nervous system. Muscle aches, joint pain and disorders of the internal organs may be affected by irritation to the nerves that are housed in the spinal column. A Chiropractor assesses for areas of subluxation (also known as misalignment), restricted joint motion and abnormal qualities to the soft tissues surrounding the spine. Treatment to restore proper movement and alignment is performed with the use of gentle spinal manipulation. Other techniques may also be used, such as hot or cold therapy, myofascial trigger point release techniques, massage and electrical muscle stimulation. At my practice, advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that significantly effect overall health and wellness will be given.
