Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy that is concerned with the nervous system and its effects on the overall health of the body. It is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and process in your body.
Your spine has a very important function in the body. Not only does it support your body's weight, but it also protects your spinal cord. Our ability to walk, jump, lift and feel almost every sensation below the neck requires a healthy spine.
The stress of daily living, injuries or accidents can cause the bones (vertebrae) to shift out of their proper alignment or affect their range of motion. These small changes can cause pain by putting pressure on the different joints, muscles and nerves along your spine.
Chiropractors understand how to relieve this pain. They are speciall trained to find the source of your back pain, assess the problem, and make the proper adjustments that allow your spine to work properly again. Chiropractors might also use massage, light therapy or other therapies to treat your back problem.
Joint manipulation is a treatment where the chiropractor uses his hands to apply very quick, precise and safe amount of pressure directly on the problem area. This relieves the pressure on the joint and surrounding nerves, and often provides immediate relief. It is a simple treatment that works. Adjustment can be applied to every joint, for example, elbow, knee, jaw or foot.
During your visit to our Yorkville clinic, you will receive advice on posture and exercises to help strengthen and correct your own, unique problem. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissue can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
