Chiropractic for Holistic Care
The chiropractic approach to wellness emphasizes your overall health. Chiropractors analyze the spine to locate the source of nerve interference associated with the body’s various systems. Any interference in nerve function disrupts these systems and their normal function, lowering resistance to disease. Through physical adjustment of the spine and joints, chiropractors can eliminate the interference, allowing the body’s natural healing power to alleviate pain and promote good health. At Wantagh Woods Chiropractic and Wellness, we believe that a healthy program of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle is the perfect compliment to chiropractic adjustments for keeping the body healthy and pain free without resorting to surgery or pharmaceuticals.
Why choose chiropractic care?
In a study published in the May issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers came to a surprising conclusion: poisoning from prescription drugs is now the second leading cause of unintentional injury and death in the U.S.
Chiropractic treatments, known as adjustments, are a safe, natural way to promote the body’s natural healing capabilities to provide pain relief without the risks inherent in the use of pharmaceutical drugs.
Why go to a chiropractor if I’m not in pain?
Each day, we subject our bodies to various forms of stresses and shocks, some of which may be significant enough to send our vertebrae out of alignment. This is known as a subluxation. Our muscles contract to compensate for these small shifts. Over time we create an unbalanced habitual posture, perpetuating the misalignment and muscle spasms and eventually resulting in pain. Periodic chiropractic adjustments correct the misalignments, known as subluxations, before they have time to manifest themselves as a problem.
To use an analogy from everyday life – why do we change the oil in our cars on a regular basis? Because if we wait too long the damage we create will be much more complicated and expensive to repair.
