What Chiropractors Do

My son had been treated for a series of ear infections but his last one would not go away. He was on an antibiotic and if his symptoms didn’t improve, tubes were the next step. I was not ready for this, my son was only 20 months old, but didn't know what else to do. At the end of four weeks, my son was not sleeping, he constantly pulled at his ear saying “owie”, he was very crabby and not his happy self. A few friends had taken their children to a chiropractor and said it was like night and day, I decided to give it a try. After his 1st adjustment he was better, after his 2nd he was back to our normal boy! He was taking great naps, sleeping through the night, and no more pulling at his ears. My husband and I were so happy with the clinic's kindness to our son, he explained everything he was going to do. We are so happy with our decision to take our son to a chiropractor.

Doctors of Chiropractic use the same time honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and X-ray examination.  In addition, he or she provides a careful Chiropractic structural examination, with emphasis on the spine.  This examination of your spine to evaluate structure and function is what makes Chiropractic different from other health care providers.  

Accidents, falls, uneven stress, tension, over-exertion or any other factor which may cause an inability of the spine to move as a dynamic organ, can result in minor displacements or derangements of one or more of these vertebrae, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots directly by pressure or indirectly through reflexes.  These irritations, in turn, may cause malfunctions in your body.  Alleviating the irritation to spinal nerves by re-establishing normal spinal mobility, the doctor of Chiropractic seeks to cause your body to operate more efficiently and more comfortably.
