Q: What Do Doctors of Chiropractic Do?
A: Doctors of chiropractic promote physical and emotional well-being.
Chiropractic has become the largest natural, drug-free healthcare system in the US (and world) because chiropractors perform a unique service. Doctors of chiropractic are able to locate and correct subluxations, a condition that damages nerves, muscles, fascia, meninges and other tissues. Subluxations cause joints to “freeze” or lose normal movement, causing damage to the involved area.
Subluxations cause imbalance, weakness, pain, inflammation, abnormal body function and many conditions including headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, tingling – and much more. Subluxations can be caused by head trauma, whiplash injuries, car accidents, sports injuries or just a slipping and falling injury.
Under chiropractic care your head is more balanced, your hips and shoulders are more level and stress is taken off the joints and muscles throughout your body. Because less of your energy goes into supporting an unbalanced spine and skeleton, you may immediately discover more energy, greater ease in movement and improved relaxation.
A healthy spine and structural system can make the difference between a life of pain, suffering and disability and one of ease, healing, happiness and freedom. Subluxations may be caused by stress that overwhelms us. For that reason, it is important to see your chiropractor to be “de-stressed” periodically. Why wait? Come in before it causes damage. And bring your family so everyone can enjoy a healthier holiday season and New Year.
