Chiropractic is both a scientific and unique approach to health care. Utilized for individuals of all ages, chiropractic’s main focus is on detection and correction of spinal misalignments to help alleviate dysfunction within the nervous system.
The central nervous system – which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves that branch out to every organ, tissue and cell in the entire body – is responsible for nearly all human function. The very important and sensitive spinal cord, which is the main conduit between our brain and body, is protected by the spine. Traumatic events like cesarean birth or a car accident and even simple acts like sleeping in awkward positions can disrupt the spine and cause pressure and irritation to the nerves controlling our bodies. If these misalignments aren’t corrected in a timely manner issues are sure to follow.
Most patients present to our office with pain. Nerves that are housed in the spine control pain sensations throughout the entire body. When there is inflammation in the nerve due to the spine being in a state of dis-ease or misalignment the individual will likely have pain (and often times many other symptoms). Individuals taking anti-inflammatories or pain relievers for spinal pain typically receive little to no relief but according to studies, patients who seek chiropractic care are 40-80% more likely to experience decrease in pain and improvement in function in as little as a few adjustments.
Chiropractic is an excellent option for pain relief but it has also been shown to help with many other health conditions like immune function, headaches and migraines, gastrointestinal disorders, and even infertility. Chiropractic has continually been shown to be both safe and gentle for individuals of all ages and is the most conservative and cost-effective mode of health care available.
Chiropractors are the only health professionals who are specifically trained and educated to find and correct spinal misalignments. There are no substitutes for the chiropractic adjustment. At Door County Healing Center we utilize chiropractic as our main platform of getting and keeping individuals well. If the nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of the human body, doesn’t it make sense to have your spine evaluated for potentially harmful health issues?
