I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

Spinal Manipulation Print E-mail

There are occasions when your spine slips or clicks out of alignment, causing shooting pains, stiffness and--more often than you may realize--headaches, numbness and tingling.  The pain you tend vertebrae.gifto feel in your back or neck is caused as your spine's misalignment pinches nerves which, in turn, causes your muscles to tense up.

Every organ, tissue, and cell is affected by nerve impulses traveling from your brain to every part of your body.  Nerves make possible all physical movement, as they transmit stimulation to all muscles, bones, and joints; they transmit all sensations to the brain; make possible all sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing; maintain your balance and keep your body at a normal 98.6 degrees; make it possible to swallow; make your bowels move; control your liver, lungs, heart, spleen, pancreas, gall bladder, and kidneys; control the circulation of blood.  As you can see, complete, perfect, natural health comes only when you have a complete, perfect, natural, and normally functioning nervous system.  Nerves are affected by the adjustment or manipulation of bones and soft tissue.  Our main emphasis at Health Focus is on the chiropractic adjustment, or manipulation, and neuromuscular therapy.

Manipulation can be defined as:  Treatment using the doctor's hands to apply body leverage and a physical thrust to one joint or a group of related joints to restore joint and related tissue function, improving biomechanical and neurological function.  Through the use of manipulation, normal motion of the spine is restored, tight muscles are relaxed, coordination is improved, and pain is inhibited.  Spinal manipulation is the most common form of manipulation and should not be confused with other forms of manual therapy, such as mobilization and massage.
