Many people think of Chiropractors as back doctors that you can go to for relief of back or neck pain. However, Chiropractic is actually a holistic healthcare concept where the whole purpose is to help the body heal naturally. Chiropractors use adjustments to the spine, and extremities of the body, nutritional supplementation, dietary changes, therapeutic modalities and procedures all designed to help remove stress from the nervous system.
The nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of the human body. Accordingly, by restoring healthy function to the nervous system Chiropractors could restore health to the body. You don't necessarily need a physical adjustment to help improve spinal alignment and remove stress from the nervous system.
In fact, the use of nutrition and dietary changes can play a huge role in improving spinal alignment and removing stress from the nervous system. In fact, nutrition is such as powerful "spinal adjuster" that we've based our entire practice around it.
Ultimately, Chiropractors focus on helping the whole body heal naturally by incorporating nutritional supplements, dietary recommendations, exercise and physiotherapy procedures. Physiotherapy procedures include ultrasound therapy, electro-muscular-stimulation and dynamic exercises.
