Why Chiropractic

Why Chiropractic?

The word chiropractic is of Greek derivation and, literally translated, means "done by hand". Chiropractic is a system of therapy that helps maintain a patient's health and well-being through spinal manipulation to treat subluxations. A spinal manipulation involves adjusting the vertebrae in the spinal column. Additional therapeutic procedures may include the use of deep tissue stretching, massage, traction, active release technique, ice and heat. The chiropractic approach to patient care recognizes that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity.

What is a subluxation?

A subluxation is a condition in which different vertebrae in your spine are either rotated or tilted. This results in pinched nerves or inflammation which can then trigger other symptoms through out the body. Back pain, neck pain, head aches, numbness, tingling, tension, tight muscles... the list goes on and on!

For instance, if you have pain or numbness radiating down your leg, it could be the result of a subluxation in the low back and/or hip joint which could apply pressure on your sciatic nerve causing the pain and tingly sensation down your leg. Many aches or pains through out the body are caused by subluxated spines. Chiropractic care is the most cost effective form of diagnosis and treatment available. It is non-invasive and an efficient use of your time.

  • "My first experience with a chiropracter came 5 years ago after a cycling accident. Conventional physicians told me I hurt my shoulder and it was just something I had to deal with. So I slept and moved with significant pain for about 3 months before I decided to see a chiropractor. What could I lose? Well, what I gained was almost INSTANT relief. Dr Choe found that the issue was acctually a neck strain that pulled my shoulder and created additional pain. After a sisngle major adjustment, I felt relief. And after a few weeks of follow up, I no longer had pain that kept me awake at night. I am a firm believer in Chiropractic health. At 50 I feel better than ever and I owe that to Dr Babuin and Dr Choe. Bailey and Christina run the front office efficiently and there are never mix-ups or problems. A+ practice!"
