Health Conditions

Could Chiropractic Help You?

FACT #1: Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell of your body. When your nervous system doesn’t work right, your body doesn’t work right. Simple as that.

FACT #2: Nerve compromise can result from poor posture, trauma (sports, difficult birth process, fall and accidents), unbalance body structure causing misalignments in the spine particularly in the cervical (neck region).

Chiropractic science refers to the misalignments affecting the nervous system function as Vertebral Subluxations, therefore chiropractic care focuses on the adjustment of vertebral subluxation(s) to improve spinal alignment and nervous system function.

FACT #3: Health is not how you feel but how you heal...

The body strives to maintain its own health and Vertebral Subluxation(s)interfere with that striving. While many patients experience an improvement of conditions and pain, it is easy to understand that Chiropractic does not treat nor cure disease per se. By adjusting the spine, nervous system function improves and the body heals itself as it is intended to do. That is the chiropractic approach to health which is different from other health care approaches.

Are you out of alignment:

1. If you have experienced injuries, trauma, repetitive stress or affected by poor posture in your daily life (improper lifting, sitting too long at the computer, etc.), you are more likely to be out of alignment.

2. It can easily be revealed with a few simple tests. We’ve simplified them so you can conduct them at home with a minimal amount of time, equipment and training. Naturally, they aren’t a substitute for a professional evaluation!

Simply study the pictures, follow the directions and conduct the tests. If the results indicate that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, call us at 770-451-0799 to arrange a thorough examination in our practice immediately. Neglected spinal problems may worsen with time and make correction more difficult, lengthy and expensive later.

A great place to begin is to notice postural distortions that show up in the head, neck and shoulders:

Anterior Posture

Notice if one shoulder is higher than the other or if the head tilts to one side. Both could be indications of the types of problems that respond nicely to chiropractic care.

Lateral Posture

A common problem is a forward leaning head. Besides a source of fatigue, this is a common sign of neurological compromise in the neck, shoulders and into the arms and wrist.
