The main focus of chiropractic treatments is hands-on spinal manipulation or adjustment. It is based on the belief that the proper alignment of the spine (which houses the spinal column) will enable the nervous system to function properly, thus enhancing the health and healing potential of all the body’s organs. By contrast, mis-alignments (called subluxations) impede electrical impulses and pinch nerves, resulting in pain, reduced function, lowered immunity and delayed healing time. Through physical exam and x-ray, our chiropractors evaluate these subluxations and adjust to re-align the vertebrae to help the body’s neurological system reach full potential.
Chiropractic treatments align the spine, which allows the entire nervous system to work the way it was intended. This gives the body an opportunity to restore its health naturally, by allowing the nervous system to function at its greatest potential.
What to Expect
On your first visit to our chiropractic clinic at the Integrative Medicine and Holistic Wellness Center, we will conduct a thorough examination including a review of your health history, orthopedic and neurological testing, and a full analysis of the biomechanics of your body. Essential diagnostic physical tests such as reflexes or muscle testing may be required. You may also be required to have an X-ray, because no one can guess what the condition of your bones may be.
