Chiropractic is a complimentary medical treatment that improves patient health by adjusting the musculoskelital and nervous system. Problems in the spine can interfere with nervous system function leading to an array of potential health problems. Chiropractors have a deep understanding of this and believe that maintaining proper alignment in the spine is crucial to health and wellbeing.
Though techniques may vary depending upon the practitioner, chiropractors generally use a variety of spinal and soft tissue adjustments to release built up pressure in the joints, balance the muscular system, realign the spine, increase blood circulation, and restore proper nervous system functions.
Many chiropractors also work with patients to develop healthier lifestyles choices. When the body becomes balanced, health can be achieved.
