"Chiropractors correct the body's alignment to relieve pain and improve function and to help the body heal itself."
-Harvard Medical School
In a nutshell, this is what chiropractic care is all about. The spine houses the spinal cord, which is what gives function, strength, sensation (pain, light touch, vibration, etc.), and cognitive input through the nervous system. If the spine becomes misaligned, then the nerves that emanate from the spine can become irritated thus diminishing their ability to function. This article below from Harvard Medical School discusses the effectiveness of chiropractic care for many conditions.
Here at Staker Chiropractic Center, we take our level of care a step further. Yes, we utilize spinal manipulation and many other manual therapies. In addition, each of our doctors are full body certified Active Release Technique (ART) providers. ART is a highly specific soft tissue technique that we use for treatment of many types of injuries. ART effectively and quickly relieves acute, chronic, overuse, and compensation injuries related to the neuromusculoskeletal system. In conjunction with our detailed biomechanical analysis of our patients, it also helps us identify motion patterns and prevent injury.
