Some people think that the job of a chiropractor is to essentially give someone a back massage, maybe pop a few vertebra, and then send them on their way. Respectfully, we couldn’t possibly disagree more.
Chiropractic care has been around since the final years of the 19th century. D.D. Palmer was the innovator of this system, and he was quoted as saying that it’s a “science of healing without drugs.” This field of health care focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and it focuses on the principle that your body will heal more efficiently after interference to the nervous system has been eliminated.
The fact is, the human body is a staggeringly complicated network of systems that are designed to work in tandem with each other. As a result, when pain happens in one location of the body, ripples can spread out and affect a number of other locations. Remember that your spinal cord and spine serve as the control center for the rest of your body and that a wide variety of medical issues can be resolved through chiropractic care.
That’s why we’ve been practicing for over 13 years because chiropractic care is often a less expensive and more effective means of treatment instead of undergoing invasive surgeries or taking wildly expensive medications. We not only focus on removing back and neck pain, massage therapy, and spinal & postural screenings. We put it all together to help our patients live a life that’s healthier and more positive.
