Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. It is rooted in the scientific understanding that there is a relationship between the spine, the nervous system, and your overall wellness.
The nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord with thousands of nerves that branch through the openings between the spine. These nerves feed to different parts of the body, such as organs, muscles and skin. When there is a loss of normal motion between the spine and nerves, it can affect nerves and surronding tissues; this can lead to symptoms you may be experiencing or can prevent from happening.
At Krim Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we focus on detecting and correcting the joints that have restrictive range of motion and spinal dysfunction to alleviate the interference so the body can function at its fullest potential. This is done by gently lining up the vertebrae in their natural position.The ultimate goal is to help realign the body, allowing it to function normally and heal itself. It is amazing the capacity the body has for healing when it is balanced and in its optimal state.
The nervous system is protected by the vertebrae of the spine. When vertebrae are out of their natural alignment, nerves become stretched, twisted or pinched, and the vital communication system in the body is disrupted. This neurological disturbance is called a subluxation, and it may result in the failure of one or more parts of the body. Instead of treating the symptoms of the disease, adjustments are given to correct the subluxation so that normal body functions may take place. Subluxations can also foster the onset of sickness and disease as the body weakens.
There is no one single treatment that will repair an injury or relieve your pain completely. This process may take weeks or months, depending on the amount of misalignment. As your body heals, the symptoms begin to resolve.
After an initial assessment, the doctor will carefully consider what will be most beneficial for you. Your treatment plan will be comprehensive, simple, customized to your individual needs and most of all effective.
