 Chiropractic Treatment

  • The goal of Chiropractic Treatment is to find the most painless dysfunction in the body, correct it so that it positively changes the movement pattern, and try to reestablish normalcy in the system in terms of deficits. This, in turn, will help with the pain
  • It is important to look at the problem globally, viewing full body movement and searching for the true source of pain/injury, and not necessarily what is "hurting." By only addressing the site of pain, it is possible to miss the reason why a person is experiencing pain
  • Chiropractors employ a general conservative care approach
  • Spinal manipulation is a non-invasive therapy that utilizes manipulation and mobilization techniques to help in restoring motion to restricted joints, that will help restore biomechanical dysfunction
  • Goal of spinal manipulation is to improve a joint or joint system's role in movement
