What Chiropractors Do

Life for the newborn depends upon the preservation and healthy functioning of the brain stem and spinal cord at the level of the upper neck.

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.
