Chiropractic Advantage, located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA is pleased to help you understand what Doctors of Chiropractic do.
Chiropractic is the Science, Art and Philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration and maintenance of health by aligning and re-tuning the spine and nervous system. Chiropractors do not offer drugs or surgery. Chiropractic recognizes that you are a self-regulating, self-healing organism. Important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors of Chiropractic call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. The Chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling, stimulate the release of endogenous opioids, and remove nervous irritation. Once this nervous irritation is removed, your body is able to do what it is designed to do – heal itself.
Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. Information about prior injuries, your activity level, and your lifestyle provide valuable clues as to how we can best help you. After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X – rays may be ordered. Then, once the examination is complete, Dr. Sharon will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan.
