The term Chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir (hands) and praxis (practice). It literally means “done by hand.” Modern Chiropractic began way back in 1895, but many people still don’t exactly understand how Chiropractic care works… or when it may be the best time to see a Chiropractor.
Since the beginning, Chiropractors have been focused on helping the body heal itself naturally without the dangers and risks of drugs or surgery. In some ways, Chiropractors were the world’s first ‘organic” health professionals!
Why it Matters:
If you have aches and pain, it’s often connected to distorted movement patterns that affect your neuromusculoskeletal system.
Your neuromusculoskeletal system is made up of your brain, nerves, muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, and tendons. Abnormal movement patterns can happen because of long hours at a computer, sudden injuries, or repetitive stress. For many people, a few adjustments can help reset the functional movement patterns of their joints and make a significant impact on their pain level.
For the best results, we’ll work together to identify and address the cause of your abnormal movement patterns to find a long-term resolution.
- Abnormal movement patterns, chronic stress, and an inflammatory diet can often cause aches and pains in your spine and joints.
- Our care plans are designed to help you reach your health goals as quickly as possible.
- Adjusting the joints of your body can both help to decrease your pain and increase your functional ability.
