Chiropractic

Muscle Soreness, Back & Neck Pain

Common complaints that chiropractors usually see regarding these areas are misalignments caused by posture, work related injuries, car accidents or the stress and strain caused by occupation whether it be physical or mental. Normally people take muscle relaxers, pain pills, or anti-inflammatories to treat their symptoms. The chiropractic approach is to correct the segments of the spine that cause the spasm pain and/or inflammation so the body can then heal itself without the toxic affects of drugs.

Your chiropractor is trained in the skill of diagnosis of the art of spinal correction.

What is Chiropractic?

Simply explained, Chiropractic is the art of adjusting (manipulating) the segments of the spine to correct misalignments (subluxations). When the spinal segments are out of their normal position, they can cause limitation of movement, pain, spasm of muscles, and the pinching of spinal nerves. Often, many conditions that a person is taking medications for can be corrected by allowing the body to restore its natural function with the release of a pinched nerve. Many of us have probably either had or know people that have had siatic nerve pain (pain down the leg) or pain coming from the upper neck area in the form of a numbness in the hands. However, many of the nerves that are pinched may not be detectable by pain, for most of the internal organs of the body do not have pain receptors but display another form of expression called "disorder" or sometimes "disease". If your spine is out of alignment and pressing on these nerves the only true restoration of health will come from their release.

Chiropractic by Hand

The art of adjusting (manipulation) the segments of the human spine by hand is not new. The Chinese during the Ming Dynasty practiced their skill more than 5000 years ago, in fact before medicine. Today, research once again is validating that the art of manipulation by hand produces more positive results than drugs, rest, or physical therapy.

Spasm of musculature, swelling and pain heal naturally once the spine has been corrected. Correcting spinal conditions by the use of the human touch provides the most important part of chiropractic care naturally at low cost.

Video Tape Available

A couple of years ago, I was given the opportunity to participate in a public television program entitled "Alternatives in Healing". That presentation included my discussion of chiropractic and the adjusting of different patients in my office along with their testimony. This video tape is available at my office, please call (413)-783-5952.
