What Is Chiropractic Care?

We're glad you asked! Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic is highly beneficial in improving symptoms like back pain, headaches, and personal injury related pain, but it is much more than that.  Chiropractic care restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body and spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body through the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.  This allows for normal health and a highly functioning body and immune system.

Addressing the Root of the Problem

The nervous system serves as the body's wiring. If this wiring is compressed, the brain's messaging does not reach the intended body part, and symptoms or illness may result.  Such interferences or compressions can occur anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.

The First Step To Recovery

Chiropractic care is beneficial for everyone, but in order for us to find out how much we can help a prospective patient we first need to learn more about your particular pain or injury.  When first visiting Parkway Wellness Center for you will sit down with the doctor discuss the nature of your pain or injury.  The doctor will consult with you and perform a brief examination.  If needed the doctor will take x-rays of the affected area.
