Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic? Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a philosophy, science, and art which utilizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body and deals with the relationship between the brain, the body and the spinal cord and the role of that relationship in the restoration and maintenance of health.

Chiropractic accomplishes this while improving nervous communication between the brain and organs resulting in improved systemic health.  Pain medications ignore the root cause of pain to begin with and then tax the liver and kidneys while eroding the lining of the digestive system.

Chiropractic adjustments are essential for spinal joints that aren't moving correctly, which can cause irritability in the nearby nerves.  Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption.  Most patients report a sense of well-being and relief after an adjustment.

Is Chiropractic care Safe?

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.

Is Chiropractic care suitable for children?

Children of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.

What is Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP)?

Chiropractic BioPhysics is a highly-advanced, scientific, and proven chiropractic technique which corrects and restores your spine back to alignment.  

Chiropractic BioPhysicas combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health.  That means your diagnoses - and treatment - will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles.

How can CBP Doctors help you?

CBP chiropractors start with a scientifically-based examination of your posture, spinal alignment, and function – often involving x-rays as a way to pinpoint the root cause of your spinal misalignment. Once the source is identified, we will create a carefully-planned series of adjustments, exercises, and a spinal remodeling programs to put you on a pain-free road to better health.
