IS CHIROPRACTIC SAFE?
Chiropractic helps remove; postural imbalances, structural misalignments, joint dysfunctions and nerve root interference that can result from a specific injury, or accumulate over time.
WHY SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
Seeing a Chiropractor is not only for back or neck pain, it can also help with; headaches, ankle, knee, wrist or shoulder pains. In addition to alleviating pain through joint alignment correction, there is a greater long term benefit. Keeping our joints in proper alignment removes stress and wear and tear on the joints. Just like keeping your car’s front end in alignment extends the life of the tires.
HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC WORK?
Chiropractic belief is that the body is made to be healthy and well. The brain via the spinal cord and nerve branches controls and maintains the proper health of all tissues in our body. When a joint is mal-aligned (subluxated) pressure may be increased on nerves or the supportive joint structure. Chiropractors adjust mal-aligned (subluxated) joints, whether they are in the spine or extremities to remove abnormal nerve pressure or abnormal joint stress, thereby helping relieve pain and restore health to the body.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT? IS IT SAFE?
An “adjustment” is a gentle movement of a joint in the spine, ankle, wrist, or any other area of the body. The objective of this movement is to restore proper motion or realign bones that have moved out of place from a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activities to trauma such as a car accident or a sports injury. Dr. Nolen does not believe in “forcing joint movement”. He believes that proper joint motion is essential and important. His adjustments are gentle and effective.
