"Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word chiropraktikos, meaning "effective treatment by hand." Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. It looks to address these diseases not by the use of drugs and chemicals, but by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly.
Chiropractic is a natural method of health care that has helped patients for over 100 years. Chiropractic is based on the premise that good health and mobility rely on a normally functioning nervous system and a healthy spine. It is the science of locating nerve interference and adjusting the vertebrae to remove that interference. The goal of chiropractic is to bring you optimal health.
You can experience total health by keeping your spine aligned through specific spinal adjustments that Doctors of Chiropractic are uniquely qualified to administer.
Chiropractic helps your muscles, joints, and nerves function the way they were intended, so your body can heal itself, naturally, from illness and injury. Chiropractic can relieve your pain, restore joint movement, reduce susceptibility to injury, and slow down or prevent degenerative diseases, such as arthritis and disc disease.
