Chiropractic care is the basis of what we do! Your spinal health is key but your overall wellness is a priority to us. The chiropractic field of healthcare has its main focus in the treatment and maintenance of the nervous system. Additionally, it focuses on finding the main cause of the problem and correcting it instead of just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic care:
When it comes to chiropractic care, it’s important to keep in mind that pain is just a symptom. The cause of the pain is usually due to an injury or some kind of misalignment. This damage either applies pressure to the nerve, which then sends a signal to the brain, causing us to experience pain, or the tissue itself releases chemicals in response to the damage, which also sends a signal to the brain to cause us to feel pain.
While pain relievers will help temporarily block these pain signals, the relief is only temporary. That’s why it’s so important to correct the cause of the pain instead of just treating the symptoms. The main goal of a chiropractor is to figure out what is causing the pain and correct it. This is primarily done through adjustments.
At Leon Chiropractic, we strive to do just that. Our goal is to help promote overall wellness, not just to treat symptoms.
