CHIROPRACTIC







 

 

Our South Tampa chiropractic physicians have extensive experience in a variety of safe, gentle and effective chiropractic manipulative techniques and have been providing chiropractic care to the south Tampa area since 2001. These techniques are individually tailored to suit the needs of each patient. Our chiropractic physicians may use traditional hands-on manual techniques as well as gentle instrumentation. All of these techniques have the purpose of clearing the subluxations which are the cause of pain and dysfunction. 

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

A unique approach to health. One that deals with the intimate relationship between the central nervous system (CNS) and its communication with the rest of the body. The CNS uses the brain and spinal cord to "speak" and express life to our bodies. Any interference with this transmission of information prevents us from functioning optimally. We call this interferencethe subluxation. Finding and removing the subluxation is the goal of a chiropractor.

Why Chiropractic?

The nervous system, comprising of the brain and spinal cord, is considered the master system. It controls everything in our body-what we see, hear, touch, feel and vital functions. Messages are constantly going back and forth between the brain and body to keep everything functioning properly. Think of the spinal cord as an information highway. Since the spinal cord is housed in the vertebral column, chiropractors look to the spinal column as an integral component to health.

What To Expect?

When a person receives a spinal adjustment for the first time, the response we hear a lot is they sleep very well that night. Some may feel a great deal of pressure being released and/or instant relief. Others might feel a little sore or tired. These are all responses to your body undergoing changes and beginning to adapt. This is just the beginning of the healing process by removing the subluxations so that your body can heal itself.

What Does It Help?

The majority of people that visit our office for the first time is due to some type of pain and it has affected their lives in some way. This maybe neck pain, back pain, headaches, numbness in the arms or legs, sports injuries or an auto injury. These are symptoms that are more likely related to their spine and nervous systems. By determining if you have subluxations and how it maybe causing your symptoms, we address the underlying cause rather than just treat symptoms.

Who May Benefit?

Everyone! Our office has patients ranging in age from 5-75. Children often sustain falls as they play which puts stress on their spine and nervous system. As the motto goes: "As the twig is bent, so grows the tree". Many choose to come in for maintenance care and prevention. Some have reached a crisis in their health and have chosen to regain their health.
