What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a conservative, holistic form of healthcare. Chiropractic helps enhance the body’s innate healing capacity to fix itself. Our body’s set point is health, sometimes due to injury, poor diet, posture and disease the homeostasis is disrupted and pain or dis-ease is felt. Chiropractic care uses manipulation of the joints and muscle to restore proper motion and flexibility so the healing process can drive forward. This in combination with exercise, diet and postural advice is usually enough to maximize function, speed healing and return the body to a state of homeostasis.
Once I initiate Chiropractic Care do I need to keep coming back?
Most patients are dismissed from active care when their symptoms decrease as the human body is great at healing itself once it’s pushed in the right direction with care. Some patients choose periodic supportive care (or tune-ups) on a weekly or monthly schedule. Many athletes choose this option as well as those with chronic, persistent problems. Care can sometimes temporarily decrease pain and increase function when delivered on a scheduled basis.
