Back Doctors or More? What is Chiropractic?

When most people hear “chiropractic” the first thing they usually think of is cracking bones or back doctors. While we do focus on the spine (located in your back) and you may even hear a “cracking” noise when certain types of chiropractic adjustments are delivered, what we do goes a bit deeper, literally. Through the spinal cord, the brain gives instruction to every cell in our bodies. By working with the spine and bones in the back we actually affect change in the nervous system, in turn impacting the entire body.

It is well known that chiropractic care can help with neck and back pain, and even works great with headaches, however many do not realize that chiropractic adjustments can also affect sexual function, digestion, blood pressure and much more! Because the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) control almost every action, conscious and automatic, in our bodies making sure that it is operating at optimal levels is key for everyday life.

The best part of receiving chiropractic care? It’s far safer than prescription drugs or invasive surgeries. While hundreds of thousands of people die every year from medical errors or side affects, fatal and life threatening injuries directly related to chiropractic adjustments are very rare.

Some researched benefits of chiropractic care include but are not limited to reduced pain & neurological conditions, improved immunity, reduced allergy & asthma symptoms, normalization of blood pressure and even improving symptoms of behavioral and learning disabilities.
