It is in this state of balance where your inner wisdom expresses itself effortlessly Autonomic Nervous Systemthroughout all aspects of your being.

ACA Defines Chiropractor

“Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and
lifestyle counseling.”

Chiropractic care is an outgrowth of belief in these concepts:Education for Chiropractor

  • Your body has a natural ability to heal itself.

  • Your body’s structure — nerves, bones, joints and muscles — and capacity for healthy function are closely intertwined.

  • Chiropractic treatment helps balance your body’s structure and function and promotes self-healing.

During the adjustment

During a typical chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor places you in specific positions to treat affected areas. Often, you’re positioned lying facedown on a specially designed, padded chiropractic table. The chiropractor uses his or her hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint, pushing it beyond its normal range of motion. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor moves your joints during the treatment session.

Additional therapies

Your chiropractor may recommend other treatment approaches in combination with chiropractic adjustment, such as:

  • Heat or ice

  • Massage

  • Stretching

  • Electrical stimulation

  • Exercise

  • Weight loss

After the adjustment

Some people experience minor side effects for a few days after chiropractic adjustment. These may include headache, fatigue or pain in the parts of the body that were treated.
