Alternative Chiropractic

 

What is “Alternative Chiropractic”?

Alternative Chiropractic is a drug-free hands-on chiropractic practice that encompasses all aspects of a healthy lifestyle including nutrition, exercise, stress relief, and of course care of the musculoskeletal system. Our highly trained team of physicians diagnose and treat the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) by utilizing the adjustment to restore normal joint function, relieve pain, improve mobility and remove nerve interference within spinal vertebrae and other joints.

Chiropractic is based on the centuries old belief that the central nervous system controls and coordinates all systems in the human body.  If there is any interference (VSC) in the spine and other joints the end result is not just pain but diminished overall health and the onset of many disease processes. Chiropractors use the “adjustment” on the spine and other joints to remove the VSC, restore normal joint motion, reduce or eliminate pain, increase range of motion and mobility, decrease pressure on nerves and reduce inflammation.

The Three Main Cause of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex

(VSC/Joint Dysfunction/Misalignments)

  1. Physical trauma: From falls, car accidents, sports injuries, poor posture, overuse injuries.
  2. Emotional Stress: From anxiety, depression, anger, fear or grief.
  3. Chemical Imbalances: from processed foods, poor diets, airborne pollutants, prescription drugs, illegal drugs and alcohol.
