Chiropractic is a holistic, drug-free and non-surgical health care profession.
Trauma from auto accidents, sport injuries and even every day activities can stretch and/or compress the spinal joints and its surrounding tissues, causing inflammation, swelling, pain, muscle spasm and spinal nerve injury. These joints may lose their normal motion, optimal position and proper function. As result, it may adversely affect the nervous system and ultimately compromising a person’s health and well being
The primary methods employed by doctors of Chiropractic to treat their patients involve either manual and/or mechanically assisted spinal adjustments or manipulation. Chiropractors may also adjust peripheral joints such as, shoulder, elbows, knees and ankles. In addition, Chiropractic physicians also utilize adjunct and ancillary procedures including physiotherapeutic modalities, rehabilitative exercises, nutritional medicine and ergonomic counseling
