Chiropractic is defined as “Practice with your hands.” So, as chiropractors we use our hands to find and to correct spinal subluxations or misalignments of the spine, to maintain your nervous system working at its best and prevent you from getting sick.
The nervous system controls all the systems, organs, and cells in your body. Spinal subluxations, put pressure on your nerves creating nerve interference so the nerves do not work at their best.Nerve interference will decrease your immune system function, making you more “vulnerable” to disease. Also, when there is nerve interference you might have different symptoms like: Headaches, Insomnia, Sinus problems, Tingling and/or numbness in hands or feet, Asthma, Allergies and a variety of aches and pains on different body parts like Lower Back Pain, Mid-Upper Back Pain, Neck and Shoulder Pain. more……. We have different ways to assess for spinal subluxations. From palpation, which is the most common one, EMG (Electric surface myogram), X-Rays, to postural analysis and functional assessments. As chiropractors, our main focus is to correct the problem from its root and we try to avoid the use the medications, injections/shots or surgeries to do so. After the symptoms are gone you have the great option of doing Maintenance Care to prevent a lot of things happening to you in the long run. Just like braces, once you are done wearing them you have to wear a retainer or else your teeth will go back to where they were before. Maintenance Care is tailored for each individual. Ask Dr. Velez what your ideal maintenance care is!
