Why Chiropractic Works
Chiropractic care has been used by millions over the past century for natural pain relief, improvement of joint function and mobility, and overall nervous system enhancement. In truth, chiropractic care has more to do with the body's ability to communicate through the nervous system than "aligning your bones".
The nervous system comprises of your brain, spinal chord and nerves and is the main communication highway for the messages between your brain and the rest of your body. To protect this important system you have a hard shell called the skull and 24 movable bones called vertebra.
Due to the stress of life, poor posture, and trauma, inflammation can be created and begin to restrict the ability for these bones to properly move causing irritation on the nerves responsible for delivering information to and from your brain. As a result, all types of symptoms can be experienced including pain, muscle spasms, headaches, sciatica, numbness in your hands and feet, digestive disturbances, high blood pressure, and countless others.
Chiropractic works because as the irritation is removed from the nerve root your body is cable of healing and returning to the "balanced" state that it desires. This safe and natural approach provides lasting results because the "root" cause of your problems are being addressed. In contrast, simply taking medication only covers up your symptoms allowing your problem to return again and again.
Safe Gentle Approach
The term "Chiro" means hands and often chiropractors will utilize their hands to deliver care. The most common techniques involve gentle pressure to your spine or joints to enhance their mobility. In some cases mild "popping" sounds can be heard as the joint is properly moved. Contrary to popular belief this sound is simply "gas" being released from your joint and not your bones actually "cracking". It is the same mechanism you use when you "crack" your knuckles.
Some chiropractors use instruments to deliver the adjustment (correction to your joint). These instruments have been proven very effective in delivering results while providing a very gentle approach. Individuals with bone density concerns, extreme soreness, or who prefer a gentler approach do very well with this approach.
Our doctors will determine what approach to utilize in your unique situation after carefully examining you and discussing your health with you.

How long does Chiropractic treatment take to improve my condition?
- The length and frequency of your treatment will depend on your condition and overall health. In severe instances such as Auto accidents, it may take longer than an "nagging" back ache. Most individuals experience improvement very quickly with chiropractic care and are able to reduce their care in a matter of sessions. Because chiropractic care is an Natural approach relying on your body's ability to heal, healing time will vary for each individual. Muscles and ligaments must be "retrained" so a one visit quick fix is often not realistic. Just like you can't go to the gym and get in shape in a single workout you can't expect the muscles of your spine to change in a single chiropractic session.
