Most people think that a chiropractor pops, cracks or snaps back pain and neck pain away, but ironically, the science that is the foundation for chiropractic has nothing to do with back or neck pain. In 1895 the first chiropractic adjustment was delivered after a man lost the hearing in one of his ears. Following the adjustment his hearing was restored. The founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer, believed that by removing a subluxations through chiropractic adjustments many conditions could be healed with the body’s natural strength. Through the science of chiropractic, passionate doctors are setting out to improve the health of millions. Chiropractic adjustments aid the body in its natural processes along with proper nutrition and exercise and without medications and surgery.
Chiropractic is a type of health care that works with the nervous system as well as the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose and treat injuries and disorders that involve the nervous system, muscles and bones. Chiropractors in Auburn work directly with the nervous system to remove any interference that may be preventing the body to heal itself, and to restore natural processes within the body. Like all other areas of health care, new patients will undergo a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications and surgeries, as well as a physical examination. It is common to take x-rays in order to further establish the cause of pain and make sure there is no underlying condition that can only be found on an x-ray. Once this whole process is completed, the doctor will use all of the information to establish a diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan.

People living with a number of different health conditions have so much to gain from chiropractic care. At our clinic, we have people that we could consider healthy individuals who are receiving the benefits of maintenance chiropractic care. Life can be stressful but the amount of stress that the body experiences is often underestimated. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments will help the body function at its optimal potential, ultimately giving the body everything it needs to take care of itself.
Chiropractic is just as much about preventing injury and disease as it is about relieving pain from existing conditions. Because chiropractic adjustments decrease the stress that the nervous system experiences and allows proper motion within the joints, if a person does becomes ill or injured, it is found that the healing process is much faster and often medication is not necessary. The ability for the body to heal itself, decreasing the need for medication or surgery, is increased if the person’s lifestyle combines chiropractic care with a healthy and active lifestyle.
