What is the foundation of chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a healthcare approach that uses the power of natural healing to promote, enhance and restore normal function within the human body. It is an approach that favors natural healing over the use of surgery or pharmaceuticals. In chiropractic care, the primary focus is on reaching a state of optimal spinal alignment through a wide variety of techniques. Once any existing misalignment has been corrected, the patient’s body is able to recuperate on its own and return to a healthy state.
What types of conditions can chiropractic care address?
Patients come to Elevated Health seeking relief from a variety of conditions. Common complaints include the experience of pain in the areas of the neck, back or head, which can result from illness or injury, or as a simple consequence of the aging process. Some people find chiropractic services helpful in addressing the joint pain that accompanies arthritis. Others seek chiropractic care for discomfort during pregnancy. Research has shown that individuals who are suffering from anxiety or depression can find a measure of relief by seeking chiropractic services.
How are chiropractic treatments conducted?
Unlike surgical interventions, chiropractic care is provided without the need for invasive procedures that are accompanied by a risk of infection and the potential for complications. While there are many different types of treatments available, the core focus is on reaching optimal spinal alignment that will facilitate a healthy and fully functional nervous system.
Chiropractic care is a highly individualized approach, and no two patients will have the exact same experience when seeking this type of alternative health care treatment. In some cases, chiropractic services are provided as the sole means of addressing a patient’s concerns. For other patients, chiropractic services work to complement and support other types of medical treatment. No matter what brings a patient in for chiropractic care, Dr. Matthew Shave and the team at Elevated Health will create a comprehensive and flexible treatment plan that is customized for each patient’s unique set of needs and goals.
