What is Chiropractic?
A Natural, Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing.
Your body is controlled by your brain, but the spinal cord and vast network of nerves that carry its messages are just as important. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall performance suffers.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. Drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as bandaids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally and holistically, in turn prompting the body to heal itself.
A common misconception is that chiropractors only treat back and neck pain. That, however, is just a small piece of what the profession is capable of handling. Chiropractors also treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, as well as fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches among others.
