What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic deals with the manipulation of the spine with the purpose of handling structural problems that cause pain in the back, neck, and joints. However, this isn’t all chiropractic does. In strengthening the spine and related areas, the goal of chiropractic is the utmost health for the entire body.

With proper nutrition and nerve communication, the body can handle a myriad of problems and maintain its own health. However, when spinal and joint pains are present, chiropractic adjustments can relieve these pains, and alleviate nerve pressure that occurs as a result of a misalignment in the spine. Understanding the complex synergy of the body, it’s easy to see that a problem with an organ, gland or system can cause misalignment of the spine. As well, a misalignment can cause problems with organs, glands or other areas of the body.

Under stress, an organ or gland creates more nerve impulses than normal in the attempt to heal itself. These additional impulses can overload the nervous system and cause symptoms such as headache, stiff neck, low back or mid back pain. Proper diagnosis is intended to locate the organ or the gland under the most stress. Chiropractic treatment can be administered to relieve the misalignment, allowing the body to heal itself. Nutritional support can also supplement treatment to further address the non-optimum symptoms.

With proper diagnosis and testing, I can locate the stressed organ or system causing the spine misalignment. Occasionally, we find a patient whose spine continually goes out of alignment. In such a case, further examination needs to take place to discover the root cause of the problem. Our advanced techniques assist in dealing with difficult problems such as herniated or ruptured discs and loose ligament syndromes. We will also provide further medical testing and nutritional assessment when needed, to determine the best course of treatment.

Our Spinal Nerve Function chart traces symptoms through the nerve channels, indicating the areas of the body that could be under stress.

Restoring communication along the body’s nerve channels creates a healthier, pain-free body.

Sincerely,

Dr. Stephen Price, Chiropractic and Nutrition
