Most people only think of going to the chiropractor when they have back pain. While this is true, it’s not the only reason to visit our office. Our family chiropractor, or family chiro for short, is here to help take care of you and your family’s overall health. The primary focus is on proper bodily alignment. It goes without saying that proper spine alignment and the effect it has on the nervous system goes a long way toward contributing to a person’s total health and well-being.

Proper alignment helps relieve pain by taking pressure off the nerves. All along the spine are nerves that branch out into the other parts of the body. If one of these nerves is pinched by something like a bone or protruding disc, pain will most likely result. Chiropractic care can help keep those nerves free from pressure.

Many athletes visit our family chiro on a regular basis for proactive care. Keeping the body aligned properly will go a long way in preventing injuries. It will also help in getting things back in order after an impact that occurred during a contact sport like football has knocked the body around. Many athletes say that the chiropractic care they receive helps them keep their performance at its best.

When you visit our family chiro, part of the focus will be on relieving stress. Stress can lead to many types of health issues. As a result, minimizing it can stop many health problems at their source. When you consider the impact stress has on your life, it is important to remember that there are different types of stress.

Physical stress is placed on certain parts of the body due to a physical impact. Physical pressure affects the nerves, muscles and tendons because of the impact. Many different things can lead to physical stress, such as suffering a fall or being in a car accident. Restoring the body to its proper alignment will help relieve this stress.

Emotional and mental stress can affect your overall health just as much as physical stress. These two types of stress seem to come with the territory of life and work these days. The body responds to these kinds of stresses in ways that can lead to health issues down the road. Chiropractic care takes all types of stress into consideration and looks at the whole person to put together a plan to maintain health and well-being without the use of medication.
