Chiropractic care is the foundation of our health services at Brown Chiropractic & Wellness Center. Medical science has shown that when your spine is healthy, the rest of your body has a better chance of being healthy as well. Regular chiropractic adjustments not only help remedy health problems, they become the basis for preventative maintenance that promotes continued good health and a higher quality of life.
Gentle and Effective Chiropractic Care
We want all of our patients to feel comfortable when they visit our office, especially during a chiropractic adjustment. With this in mind, we use the ProAdjuster technology to perform non-invasive, comfortable spinal analysis and adjustment. Using modern technology, we can check and realign your spine gently, without the “twisting” and “crunching” that most people associate with chiropractic treatment.
Rehab Exercises for Spinal Maintenance
Another part of our chiropractic care is the recommendation and teaching of rehabilitation exercises. Once your spine is adjusted, regular rehabilitation exercises will help to reinforce the corrections of the adjustments, helping your spine to build its strength and maintain its alignment by stabilizing joints. Regular practicing of rehabilitation exercises provides the daily maintenance necessary to keep your spine and joints healthy.
Why Do I Need Chiropractic Treatment?
At Brown Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we believe that the human body is created with the natural ability to heal itself so long as the nervous system is able to communicate properly with all parts of the body.
What is a Vertebral Subluxation?
The spinal cord is the central distribution center of our nervous system, with nerves branching out from it to all other parts of our body. The bones that make up the spine are called vertebrae and form a protective column around the delicate spinal cord. When a vertebra becomes misaligned, called a vertebral subluxation, it can put pressure on the nerves that run between the vertebrae, causing pain or malfunctioning in parts of the body to which those nerves lead.
Chiropractic treatment is intended to remove the interference to proper nerve functioning through realignment of misaligned bones that are causing pressure on nerves. In restoring the proper alignment of the spine, we can restore the proper functioning of our nervous system.
Causes of Vertebral Subluxation
It doesn’t take much to cause a misalignment, or subluxation, in our spine. Any kind of major or minor trauma, including an auto accident, falling down, and even childbirth, can result in a subluxation. Repetitive motion in some sports or jobs is also a leading contributor to spinal subluxation, as are mental and emotional stress.
The fact is that everyone experiences vertebral subluxation at some point in their lives, which, if left untreated, can lead to more severe health problems down the road.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?
Chiropractic treatment has been proven to aid in the remediation of a multitude of health conditions apart from the obvious candidates of back and neck pain.
Because nerve functioning affects every area of your body, almost any health condition can be helped through chiropractic therapy, including such things as sinus problems and allergies, infant cholic, ear infections, respiratory problems, heart conditions, blood pressure abnormalities, digestion issues, skin problems, joint pain and stiffness, numbness and poor circulation in limbs, and even hemorrhoids. And that is just the beginning of the list.
The motivation behind our practice is that regular chiropractic care can lead to a healthier, happier life for our patients.
