At Summit Spine and Wellness, chiropractic care is something we believe is beneficial for everyone, whether you are seeking treatment for pain or want wellness care to keep you healthy and strengthen your immune system.
Pain is your body letting you know something is wrong. Chiropractors work to find the source of your pain and correct it. It is estimated that only 10% of your nervous system is able to feel pain, so we often find that some of our patients have had an ongoing problem for months or even longer before they start to experience pain. Often, when you are experiencing pain in your back, neck, or headaches, it is due to a subluxation. A subluxation is a misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine that results in the nerves being pinched or irritated, causing pain. Subluxations are common, but if left untreated they can lead to degeneration in the spine, and eventually osteoarthritis.
Your central nervous system control every function of your body. To stay healthy and have a strong immune system, the nerves throughout your body have to be able to communicate with your central nervous system. In addition to feeling pain, whenever nerves are pinched or irritated, communication to the brain is suppressed or even halted. When this happens, your nervous system is no longer functioning optimally.
One of the reasons chiropractic care is unique is it focuses on keeping your nervous system functioning the best it can. By correcting any subluxations, you will experience less pain, have a stronger immune system, and your organs and muscles will function better. Chiropractic care keeps you healthier.
Chiropractic care uses gentle adjustments to remove any subluxations (misalignments) of the spine. These adjustments restore proper nerve flow to your organs and muscles, allowing your body to once again function as it should. This is your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
There are many reasons to see a chiropractor ranging from pain management to maintaining your health and wellness.
At Summit Spine and Wellness, we are committed to keeping you healthy and pain-free. When you come to our office for treatment, we will first review your symptoms, your health history, and complete any necessary exams to help us discover the underlying cause of your problem. The examinations may include chiropractic, orthopedic, physical exams, and x-rays if needed. Once we have reviewed that, we will create a treatment program for you to correct the cause of your problem, restore your range of motion, improve function, and alleviate your pain.
When chiropractic care and adjustments restore the nerve supply to your body, you will find your symptoms going away and your body naturally healing. Chiropractic is a natural treatment that restores your body to its natural health, wellness, and function. Once you understand how chiropractic care and your health are intertwined, you will want to keep your spine properly cared for, allowing your body to function optimally. Regular chiropractic care will help you avoid future problems, illnesses, and pain.
