The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove interferences to your natural state of being healthy.
Modern chiropractic is not simply about putting bones back into place. Chiropractors adjust and mobilize the bones of the body to restore proper joint and spinal mechanics.
When an adjustment is given, built up pressure is released and some degree of motion is restored to the particular area. Some patients will feel immediate, though temporary relief.
It is easy to understand how this relief could be taken to mean “cure.” However, this is usually the first step in a process which takes time and consistent effort to repair.
Most patients find that periodic chiropractic checkups help keep them in tip-top shape. Those who are active, have stressful jobs, or want to be their very best, find that a schedule of preventative visits are helpful in the maintenance of good health
