Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts based on the knowledge and understanding that good health depends on a healthy and functioning nervous system, especially the spine.
Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down your spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to your brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called a "subluxation," can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues.
Back and neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel pain, and a wide variety of other health challenges are often symptoms of the underlying problem - subluxation. Accidents, stress, falls, overexertion and other factors can also displace or alter the arrangement of the spinal column and cause irritation to spinal nerve roots.
By locating and adjusting subluxations, chiropractic reduces or eliminates these irritations so your body can operate more efficiently and comfortably. These specific spinal adjustments help improve mind/body communications and nervous system control of the body, and pave the way for the return of good health. The proper function of your nervous system is the primary focus of Dr. Korchok and his health care team.
Chiropractic is a proven and safe therapy, addressing problems and correcting conditions without drugs, chemicals or surgical intervention. Doctors of chiropractic use methods of consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and x-ray to diagnose a patient's condition and determine a course of treatment. A thorough examination of the spine gives chiropractic its specialized focus. Chiropractic also emphasizes proper nutrition, exercise programs, and lifestyle modifications to promote good health.
Remember - the nervous system is the master control system for all of the other systems in the body. These other systems include the digestive, immune, respiratory, excretory and reproductive systems. Chiropractic should be your first choice in helping your body perform at peak potential, and remain in good health.
