Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. The nervous system controls every muscle, organ, and tissue in the body. If there is something wrong with your nervous system, then your spine and musculoskeletal system will be negatively impacted - so will the rest of your body. Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to get the nervous system and the rest of your body functioning optimally, helping the body to adapt and heal itself at a higher level.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
