Chiropractic care is much different from traditional medicine. Traditional medicine concentrates on treating a patient's symptoms. Chiropractic care states that the symptoms indicate a problem in the body and seeks to alleviate the symptom by determining what is causing it and then effectively dealing with the problem. Chiropractic care uses treatment procedures that have been proven effective. Treating the problem -- alleviate the symptoms.
Chiropractic understands that the body is an intelligent system that is designed to maintain good health. The central nervous system communicates with and controls and coordinates ALL other systems of the body. It is protected by the skull and vertebral segments. When the spinal joints don’t move through their full range of motion, research shows neurological input from the spine to the brain is altered creating stress throughout the body. The body has the ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Think of how the body's systems work together to heal a cut or scrape. Chiropractic care identifies mis-alignment in the body and helps ways the body naturally overcome those conditions by resetting the body's systems.
Why Should You Choose Chiropractic Care?
Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to restore and reactivate the body's natural ability to heal itself. One treatment used in chiropractic care is the atlas orthogonal technique. This is a post graduate specialty in the field of chiropractic care that focuses on the first vertebra of the spine, also known as the atlas vertebra. A chiropractor using this technique gently adjusts this vertebra to promote healing. The spinal adjustment is painless and is done without any jerking or twisting. An x-ray analysis is done prior to any treatment to see the exact position and the atlas and axis (C1 and C2) used to ensure a very gentle and precise adjustment, literally putting the head on straight. When the first vertebra is aligned, it affects the rest of the spinal alignment, similar to moving the top link in a chain. When the spine is aligned properly, it helps remove the stress from the nervous system and studies have shown a 20% increase of blood flow and energy to the brain.
