Chiropractic care treats the structural and functional relationship between muscles, nerves and joints in order to restore health. Most people are familiar with the treatment of the neck and back, but chiropractors are uniquely qualified to treat any joint in the body: shoulders, elbows, hips, wrists, knees and ankles. Doctors of Chiropractic receive the same education as Medical Doctors with a special focus on the study of anatomy, physiology and neurology.
The human nervous system controls all functions in the body, and when there is nerve impingement, loss of function results. Symptoms of impingement are pain, stiffness, limited movement, weakness, numbness, tingling and headaches. Chiropractic adjustments will relieve the pressure on nerves, restore proper function and allow the body to heal itself and to maintain a healthy immune system.
