What is Chiropractic?

573061801LChiropractic is natural health care for the whole person. It is a non-invasive healing approach without drugs. It concerns the relationship between the structure (primarily the spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of your body and how that relationship affects your health.

No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments—called subluxations—can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally. By concentrating on the spine as the source of health for the entire body, chiropractic care is a natural approach to health restoration, maintenance, and disease resistance. Chiropractic uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own. Chiropractic treatment involves a variety of techniques and therapies that have been proven effective in treating the following conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Neck Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Arm Pain
  • Hand Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Leg Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Elbow Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Numbness
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Etc.

Whether your conditions are a result of day-to-day life, an injury while working, or an accident (automobile or other), you can be assured your problem will receive the utmost personal attention from Dr. Burrow. She seeks to relieve pain and restore the health of her patients.
