- Our first objective is to give you relief from any pain or other discomfort you might be having.
Sometimes pain relief is possible with the first chiropractic adjustment, but this is the exception. Many
chiropractic patients are able to get relief within the first few visits, while the remaining percentage of patients
require a longer period of time due to the nature, severity, and duration of their conditions.
- Today's highly-trained Doctor of Chiropractic has spent thousands
of hours - six years or more of college - earning his doctorate. He has had extensive clinical experience with the human
body and how to take care of it without drugs or surgery.
- Most conditions of pain or ill health are the result of some underlying cause within the body which must first be
found before correction can be effected, pain relieved, and health restored and maintained. Chiropractic has developed
special techniques for locating the real, fundamental, original causes within the body which prevent natural health, and for
correcting them so that normal, natural body functions may be restored to all the organs, tissues, and cells of the body.
- The Docotor of Chiropractic works with the nerves - both directly and indirectlly - because every function of your
entire body is under the control of the nervous system. Every organ, tissue, and cell is controlled by nerve impulses
traveling from your brain to every part of your body. Nerves make possible all physical movement as they transmit nerve
supply to all the muscles, bones, and joints. Nerves transmit all sensations to the brain. Nerves make possible
all sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. Nerves maintain your balance and keep your body at a normal 98.6 degrees.
Nerves make it possible to swallow Nerves make your bowels move. Nerves control your liver, lungs, heart, spleen,
pancreas, gall bladder, and kidneys. Nerves control circulation of blood. In fact, as you can see, your nervous
system is the master control of all other body systems...glandular, reproductive, digestive, eliminative, respiratory, and
circulatory. Complete, perfect, natural health comes only when you have a complete, perfect, natural, normally-functioning
- The Doctor of Chiropractic treats the SPINE because it houses and protects
the spinal cord - the "switchboard" of the nervous system through which nerves pass from the brain as they carry
nerve supply to all parts of the body. The nerves branch off the spinal cord through openings between the movable spinal
bones (vertebrae). When these vertebrae, along with the discs between them, are out of alignment there can be interference
(irritation) with the normal activity of the nerves. This interference (irritation) can disturb normal function throughout
the body and cause many conditions. (similar to when you would park a car tire on a full garden hose and it stops
the flow of water - it's the same with the nerves.)
- Some patients mistake temporary relief for permanent correction, and discontinue chiropractic care when they begin
to feel better. Keep in mind that in order to get the maximum benefit from your chiropractic care, you must allow enough
time for maximum correction of the causes of your condition, and permit the weakened muscles and ligaments to strengthen and
adjust to their new positions.
Spines is similar to straightening teeth -
