How Can Chiropractic Care Help Me?

Minneapolis & St. Paul Chiropractors

Chiropractors share the belief that the spine and health are related in a fundamental way, and that this relationship is mediated through the nervous system. Chiropractors examine the biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, along with its effects on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and what they believe to be its role in health and disease.

It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system is functioning properly. Interference to the nerve system can lead to a change in health most easily seen as disease or loss of function.

The Goal of Chiropractic

It has become well-accepted treatment for acute pain and problems of the spine, including lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, whiplash, as well as poor overall health, low energy levels and much more.

Although often aimed at a specific problem, chiropractic provides a 400 percent increase in resistance to sickness for those under regular care. This is achieved by removing blockages in the spine that prevent the body from staying well.

The treatment options offered at our clinic are specifically designed and administered to relieve any current health problems you might have and to prevent any health problems that may develop due to a misaligned spine. These misalignments, or vertebral subluxations, disrupt nervous system communication and lessen the body’s ability to function and heal itself.

Common patient management involves spinal manipulation (SM) and other manual therapies to the joints and soft tissues.

Because preventing disease from happening is remarkably more beneficial than treating it after it occurs, chiropractors also provide lifestyle advice on diet & nutrition, fitness, ergonomics, and other areas in your life that contribute, or diminish, your overall health. You will feel better, you will have more energy and you will increase your quality of life by optimizing the health of your body.

The greatest advantage is that chiropractic treats the cause rather than only treating the symptoms. And we do it naturally, without drugs or surgery.
