What is a Chiropractor’s Fundamental Goal?
At Pioneer Chiropractic & Wellness, we know that sometimes the only solution to all those mystery pains in the back and neck is to manipulate the body itself. Not, however, with medicines that come with a host of side-effects, but with spinal manipulation.
This approach to musculoskeletal issues was developed around the turn of the 20th century when DD Palmer recognized a connection between hearing loss and vertebra in the upper back.
The overarching goal of the American Chiropractic Association is to help patients feel healthier and more productive in their daily lives. These professionals have likely experienced the benefits of chiropractic first-hand and are passionate about proven alternative therapies that have the power to restore the structural integrity of the spine.
Proper alignment is essential to whole body wellness.
Helping patients feel their best without medication or surgery
Beyond improving functionality, which, truthfully, can be achieved short-term through a variety of treatment methods, chiropractic professes the effectiveness of spinal manipulation on the overall, long-term health of the individual. Though a chiropractor does not hold a medical degree, they are licensed practitioners. Because relationship between the nervous system and spine is very intricate, chiropractic doctors are required to complete around six years of study and clinical practice before treating patients on their own.
