Chiropractors are highly trained, university educated physicians and experts in the areas of spinal function, injury prevention, posture, exercise, rehabilitation and many other areas of sports, health and mental stability. Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to correctly analyze and correct subluxations/blockages in the spine (misalignment in the spine that puts constant pressure on vital nerves and disrupts the optimal functioning of the body). These subluxations result in declining health and various physical complaints. The Chiropractor focuses on restoring normal movement of the spine and the correct position of the vertebrae. Misalignment, imbalance and subluxations have a profound, negative effect on your nervous system and how we experience our lives.
How do I know if I/my family needs chiropractic care?
You do not have to be in pain to visit a chiropractor. The bones of your spine are responsible for protecting your fragile nervous system. Your nervous system is known as the main control system because it regulates and controls all systems including your circulatory system, organs, breathing, and muscular system to name a few! Just as it is important to start consulting a dentist as early as possible for our dental care, it is also essential that you have a trained professional look at your spine and nervous system. Anyone with a spine needs a chiropractor.
Do treatments cause pain?
A chiropractic treatment does not cause injury, and pain is naturally associated with injury. The tenderness some people experience after treatment is due to the muscles tightening as a protective response. Just like when someone unexpectedly throws something at you, and you quickly react in shock and protect yourself. The sensitivity that arises in people because of this protective reaction can vary from person to person.
As professionals, we explain and advise our clients so they understand that the best results come from calming down and letting us apply our magically trained techniques.
