What is Chiropractic?
Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that our body is self-healing and self-regulating system. Think of it this way, when you cut your finger you don't have to do a thing for it to heal. The body does it all by its self! The same holds true for most conditions...... Sometimes it just needs a chiropractic hand.
You know that your body is controlled by your brain, but the spinal cord and vast network of nerves that carry its messages are just as important. When the nerves cant relay the information back and forth this system is not functioning properly and your body’s overall performance suffers.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are often a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as bandaids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. At ET Chiropractic we want to treat the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
While it's often perceived that the chiropractor solely treats back and neck pain, this is a small piece of what the profession is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches among many more.
