As chiropractors, we follow the healing philosophy of chiropractic founder Daniel David Palmer – that manipulation of the spine by skilled hands can lessen or eliminate many of the body’s problems arising from the nervous system.

Chiropractic-type healing has been around since ancient Egypt, but it wasn’t until 1895, when Palmer founded chiropractic as a field of medicine, that there began to be an organized approach to healing the body’s ailments.

Chiropractic healing focuses on neuromusculoskeletal and general health issues, and while our treatments do not involve drug prescriptions, our techniques can include:

  • Massage
  • Nutrition

Low back pain is one of the most common health complaints from people who seek medical consultation. The causes of low back pain vary from person to person. When we break down the reasons, they can be categorized under the following three categories:  physical, lifestyle, or psychosocial.  Under these terms, we consider many factors such as work-related posture, repetitive stresses, body weight, age, improper lifting, moving the wrong way, your perception and attitude towards pain and even job-related stress. The list goes on, but these tend to be some of the most common.

Pain Does Not Discriminate

Pain is one of the few things in life that will not discriminate against age, sex, or race. With that in mind, it is essential to understand that everyone can benefit from chiropractic care when the body becomes too damaged to repair itself. Over the course of time, this damage will stop the body from operating at optimal levels and in some cases force individuals to stop participating in everyday habits and enjoyments. This is known as microtrauma and over time will cause pain, scar tissue, and in some cases severe arthritis.

The following are just a few of many benefits you can receive from chiropractor care:

  • Improved circulation to various parts of the body
  • A reduction in the amount of waste that can build up in the joints, tendons, and muscles
  • Improvement in flexibility
  • Reduction in the amount of pain the body feels
  • A faster healing time
  • Fewer muscle spasms
  • Less of a chance of injury
  • The bodies muscles are much more relaxed
  • The muscles are no longer tense
