Why Chiropractic?

1. Drug Free Approach to Healthcare

Find not only relief from back and neck problems, but Chiropractic is also a pathway to wellness with it’s natural, drug­-free approach to healthcare.

2. Boosts Immune Function

A 2010 study found that chiropractic adjustments actually boosted blood serum levels of some important natural antibodies in patients. The authors suggested that chiropractic adjustments might “prime” the immune system, making it easier to ward off infection and illness.

3. Reduces Inflammation

Researchers in a 2011 study compared back pain patients to people with no pain and gave both groups chiropractic adjustments. The authors found that the back pain patients who received chiropractic care had dramatically lower levels of a key inflammatory cytokine, known as TNF-α. High levels of TNF-α have been linked to inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and psoriasis.

4. Reduces Stress

After receiving a chiropractic neck adjustment, patients have altered brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for pain processing and stress reactions. They also have significantly reduced cortisol levels, indicating decreased stress. Participants report lower pain scores and a better quality of life after treatment.

5. Improves Balance

A small study from 2009 found that people who received chiropractic adjustments had reduced dizziness and improved balance. A 2015 review of the literature suggests that chiropractic care might be an effective, natural way to help prevent falls in elderly patients.
