Why Choose Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is a healthcare profession that helps correct the skeletal misalignments in the body that have a direct effect on the nervous system and muscular system. These misalignments are called subluxations. Subluxations are caused by a variety of reasons such as injuries, muscle imbalances, poor posture, bad ergonomics and everyday stresses that your body goes through. These subluxations mostly occur in the spine, but can also occur in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, feet and any joint within the body. Correcting these subluxations that cause an imbalance in the nervous system can help with a variety of conditions such as sciatica, colic, scoliosis, joint pain, digestive problems, panic attacks, and much more. Hippocrates, a Greek physician and father of western medicine, made a similar observation and quoted:
"Look well to the spine for the cause of disease."
Doctors of Chiropractic are the only healthcare profession that has been able to effectively treat these subluxations because their education program (similar to medical doctors) puts a much higher emphasis on anatomy, biomechanics, and physiology than other healthcare professions.
Natural and Drug Free
It seems, today, whenever you get hurt or sick the doctor always gives you a prescription. Drugs only help relieve the symptoms. Chiropractic care finds the cause of the problem and gives your body the best advantage to heal properly by correcting the subluxatons. Thomas Edison made the prediction, long before Chiropractic became a mainstream healthcare, of what doctors should be doing to treat patients effectively.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Apparently, Thomas Edison shared the same ideals on healthcare that chiropractors practice today.
