Why visit a Chiropractor?
Chiropractic is presently the worldâ€™s third largest health care profession. For the past two decades, more people have chosen to treat with doctors of chiropractic than any other health care provider. The reason is simpleâ€¦ doctors of chiropractic are trained to find the root of the problem, not to medicate it. More than ever in todayâ€™s society, we have the knowledge and understanding behind medication therapy and how that differs from correcting the source or cause of our problems. Chiropractic is a drug free health care option aimed at raising function and improving overall health.
How is Chiropractic Different?
The principle is straightforward. By evaluating the body as a whole to identify areas of weakness and predisposed structural imbalances, we find the root cause of disease, dysfunction and pain. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, remove and prevent vertebral misalignments (subluxations) which cause nervous system dysfunction. Dysfunction occurs through stress or trauma to our spines and extremities.
Examples of dysfunction include physical, emotional, and chemical stressors dealt within our everyday lives, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, work related injuries, repetitive types of movement and biomechanical spinal changes (posture, just to name a few).
At all of our locations we offer a variety of the highest quality vitamin products available. Specific vitamin therapy can be helpful for a variety of ailments. We offer on site testing of our patients' vitamin needs. The purpose of the testing is to be sure that the vitamins that you are taking are the ones you really need. All patients are tested using a sophisticated computer program to determine which vitamins they should or should not take before any vitamin regiment is prescribed.
We try and make our patients' experience as relaxing as possible so we now offer diagnostic testing on site to prevent the hassles of driving all over town to receive these services. In todayâ€™s high tech medical world, diagnostic testing is becoming ever more important to help physicians treat there patients. The diagnostic tests that we offer on site include X-ray and the use of EMG/NCV/SSEP diagnostic equipment. X-ray diagnostic testing is used to see the bones and overall structure of our patients. EMG/NCV/SSEP diagnostic testing stands for nerve conduction velocity testing and somato sensory evoked potential testing. This non-invasive â€śneedle lessâ€ť procedure is very effective in determining the cause of tingling and numbness in the extremities. The reason we use this high tech diagnostic equipment is to find and correct the cause of our patientsâ€™ problems as quickly as possible.
