Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic is simply a mechanical approach to staying healthy. Some problems (ex. Diabetes) have a chemical origin. This is the expertise of the Medical doctor. Some problems, like spinal pain, muscle pain and joint pain are mechanical in nature. This is where chiropractic excels. Some problems are electrical or energetic in nature this is where acupuncture, laser and Spectra-vision excel.
It’s a bit more complicated than that because of the role of the nervous system in regulating the body. The hard bones of the spine house the soft tissues of the nervous system. Spinal misalignments, technically called subluxations, can impinge on the nervous system and impair function. In the same way that a pinched nerve in the neck can cause your hands to go numb, a pinched nerve between your shoulder blades can affect heart, lung or kidney function. This is why so many people feel better and have fewer problems under chiropractic care.
Most people come in for pain relief. Many stay after the pain is gone because they enjoy the freedom of movement and health benefits of care. Either way, the choice is yours. You will not be pressured or asked to sign contracts at Midtown Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
