Chiropractic care focuses on the integrity of your nervous system by keeping it free of interference. By performing a thorough examination, Dr. Gullo will locate areas of interference in your nervous system. These compromised areas are called “vertebral subluxations.” Vertebral subluxations are spinal misalignments that place undue pressure on your nervous system, not allowing it to express health. Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. Vertebral subluxations can be present at any stage of your life, infancy through adulthood.
While it’s often perceived that the chiropractor is only able to treat back and neck pain, this is just simply not the case. Back and neck pain represent only a small fraction of what the chiropractic profession is really capable of treating in the relief of pain. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue conditions, such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called upon to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches, to name a few.
How does chiropractic care relieve pain?
Chiropractic care is a sought after treatment for conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other extremity pain. Spinal adjustments are used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as an automobile accident, work injury, a fall, or the stress and strains our busy lives impose upon our bodies.
How can chiropractic care benefit your family?
Chiropractic care has been helping families for years. Many patients view their chiropractic doctor as their family doctor. That’s smart. The cost of surgery is rising. The adverse reactions to drugs receive front-page news. Families want safe and natural solutions. More and more families are choosing chiropractic care first as a means for restoring and maintaining good health.
How does chiropractic care benefit pregnant women?
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. Babies can benefit when their pregnant mothers receive chiropractic care. During this period of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care. They report more comfortable pregnancies and easier births.
How do children benefit from chiropractic care?
Newborn, infants, and children can benefit from chiropractic care. The birth process may be the cause of our first subluxation. A chiropractic examination is essential to determine this. If indicated, a gentle spinal adjustment is given. With no more pressure than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato, nerve compromising subluxations can be reduced. Many parents see almost instant improvements in the well-being of their child following a spinal adjustment. Regular chiropractic adjustments are helpful to monitor spinal development, prevent spinal problems, and ensure health by having a nervous system, free of interference.
