“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease” - Thomas Edison

Chiropractors follow the philosophy that the body has a powerful, innate power to heal itself.  Accidents, poor posture, diet, and other factors can cause the joints and muscles of the body to not move properly, reducing the body’s healing capacities and bringing about pain, chronic conditions, and disease.  Undue pressure and strain on the neck and back can also cause the spinal nerves to be affected, thus impacting the tissues that those nerves feed. Chiropractors use their training and skills to detect these structural restrictions and restore the body’s natural movement and healing ability, thereby stopping pain at the source of the problem, rather than simply masking the body’s natural alarm system as drugs often do.

Chiropractors always begin their first consultation discussing the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle.  Next, they examine the patient using a series of standard neurological and orthopedic tests.  They may also take x-rays of the affected area.  After a careful diagnosis, the chiropractor will determine if the patient is a good candidate for chiropractic care.  If appropriate, they will refer the patient to their medical doctor and/or specialists for further tests and treatment.

A chiropractic adjustment consists of the doctor giving a gentle force with their hand or an instrument to mobilize the vertebrae of the spine and joints of the arms and legs. Restoring this motion reduces inflammation and pain. An adjustment is rarely painful, especially if the doctor uses a gentle technique. Chiropractors may also recommend dietary changes, exercises,  stretches and postural corrections to aid in the body’s healing process.  Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or use surgical procedures.  They believe that the body should, when possible, be treated through more conservative, less invasive methods.

Chiropractic is useful in alleviating back pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, neck, shoulder, and arm pains, sports injuries, repetitive strain injury, and many other joint and muscle disorders. It has also found to be effective in treating many other common conditions such as asthma, indigestion and the irritable bowel syndrome, palpitations, high blood pressure, infantile colic, and other issues that are affected by the nervous system. By reducing the stress on a spinal nerve within the spinal column, dysfunctions stemming from the same vertebral level can be alleviated.

“Chiropractors are increasingly becoming important members of the healthcare team, providing valuable contributions to a patient’s health and well being.  I can attest to this on a professional and a personal level.  Following an accident three years ago, I had the conservative chiropractic and orthopedic care and thus avoided surgery.”
– Dr. Sana Khan, Ph.D., M.D.
