"A system of noninvasive therapy which holds that certain musculoskeletal disorders result from nervous system dysfunction arising from misalignment of the spine and joints and that focuses treatment especially on the manual adjustment or manipulation of the spinal vertebrae" - Merriam Webster definition
What do we do here at SA Injury Center?
Here at SA Injury we like to incorporate muscle work along with the chiropractic adjustment. We asses the health of your spine and nervous system by checking for any kind of misalignment in the spine, or what is also known as a subluxation. What often happens to people, whether due to a bad fall, car accident, sports injury, desk job, or a number of other causes, is their bones can shift out of proper alignment, which in turn puts damaging pressure on the nerves. This is critical because every organ/function in your body is controlled by your brain. Your brain tells each organ in your body how to function by communicating through the spinal cord and nerves. When there is a blockage affecting communication from the brain, health problems can occur.
What an Adjustment Does
We locate exactly where you have subluxations. Then, we administer a specific adjustment to the appropriate region of your spine. This helps reestablish natural balance and alignment.Adjustments are natural and non-invasive, a precise amount of manual force to a specific part of the spine. If you prolong taking care of any kind of misalignment, the harder it will be to reverse the damage. Even if you're not experiencing pain, we still recommend chiropractic, because often times it can take years for a misalignment to develop and provoke pain. Chiropractic is a natural drug-free approach to maintaining health and overall wellness for your body.
