|Hippocrates wrote that “the natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” Chiropractic is a evolutionary approach to wellness that focuses on tapping into the body’s ability to heal itself without drugs.
Chiropractors focus on correcting dysfunctional areas in the spine called vertebral subluxations. These misalignments of the vertebrae (spinal bones) are quite common and can cause musculoskeletal pain. Using gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments, your doctor at Chiropractic for Life corrects vertebral subluxations, relieving pain and often improving range of motion in affected areas.
In addition to musculoskeletal pain, chiropractic adjustments can ease a variety of conditions related to the nerve system. The core of the nerve system is the spinal cord. If the vertebrae that surround the spinal cord are out of alignment, diverse symptoms may result — from digestive complaints to allergies and asthma to infant colic.
Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life also advises patients regarding other lifestyle changes to support optimal wellness, including nutrition, exercise, stress-reduction and ergonomics. These components of well-being strengthen overall health and, in turn, the ability to fend off disease and recover quickly from injury.Dr. Barbara Smith
