Doctors of Chiropractic or DCs, go beyond the treatment of back pain. The generalized narrative of “why would I see a chiropractor? I don’t have back pain!” is one we interact with daily. At a chiropractor’s office, we are observing and treating the nervous system as a whole to allow optimal vitality from the inside out. When your nervous system is functioning properly, other body systems follow suit. So how do we treat the nervous system? Our Central Nervous System begins in the brain, travels along the brain stem, and extends into the spinal cord, all housed within the structure of the spine. We work on the back, neck, limbs, and joints to clear subluxations and allow free communication from the nervous system to the rest of the body. Once we clear the information highway that is the nervous system, we see a decrease in pain, less irritation in the muscle system surrounding the spine and other organs, a greater ability to deal with stress, reduction in anxiety, and a resounding overall better sense of wellbeing.
Your body is designed to be healthy, and you were born with innate vitality. Life experiences, mental and physical stress, trauma, poor sleep, and repeated habits lead to subluxations, which cause “traffic” or blockages in the spine and surrounding tissues. Our work is focused on working with your body and its innate intelligence, using adjustments to clear the roadways for better communication and function and thereby returning to optimal health.
