A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel so much better. Your body does not want to be out of alignment, and that’s exactly what an adjustment can help address. It is also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that have abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in fixing these issues.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
A chiropractic adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra, relieving sensation, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles. It also releases joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
Corrective exercises can help make any pain that you are experiencing go away and stay away. These exercises will strengthen and correct the irregularities of your body which may be causing your pain. Most of these exercises are able to be performed in the comfort of your own home. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles or connective tissues that are out of place can also cause pain.
It may seem obvious, but many people don’t realize that their health is a product of their overall lifestyle. The choices we make in life have an effect on our health — an effect that could be positive or negative.
There are many negative lifestyles choices that we make. Some of these are small, some of them are more significant. Some of them are even things we do on a daily basis for years. But even if we know something that we do is having a negative effect on us, it can be difficult to break free from that pattern of behavior.
Part of healing the entire body is monitoring what goes into it. The body uses food as fuel, and what fuel we choose has a significant effect on how our body functions.
That is why nutritional counseling is one of the most important services we can provide for people. By teaching people about what types of foods allow their bodies to function optimally, we empower people to make positive choices that benefit their health.
While nutrition is not an overly complicated concept, it can be difficult to implement the concepts into your daily life and turn that into good habits. That is why nutritional counseling can help people change the way they eat and ultimately the way they feel.
Physical therapy rehabilitation uses mechanical force and movement to improve mobility, function, and even quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.
There are many reasons patients come to us for physical therapy. One of the main reasons is because they have been hurt in an automobile accident and need additional attention in order to get their bodies back to feeling normal. Other people hurt their bodies in sports or work and need assistance to feel better again.
Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you feel better. Our compassionate and educated chiropractors will work with you every step of the way. Results of an injury can vary from person to person, so it is important to speak with our wonderful staff to see how we can help you. Our number one goal is to help you feel better.
