Many people seek out Chiropractors to help with injuries they’ve sustained or to provide pain relief… We just happen to be the best in Orange County at it.
What is it? Chiropractic care is effective in reducing and eliminating symptoms, successfully restoring normal function of the vertebral segments and reducing interference of the nerves.
We also offer acupuncture, physiotherapy, and massage treatment options.
Chiropractic is based upon the fact that the nervous system is the master controller of the body, monitoring and coordinating all organs and systems of the body.
Maintaining proper alignment of the vertebra ensures optimum performance of the spinal nerves and prevents interference of the function of those structures. Proper spinal alignment also prevents arthritic changes of the spine, deterioration of the discs and improves overall spinal flexibility.
Patients will often ask us when they come into the office for treatment why their pain seemingly came out of nowhere or they went to be feeling fine then woke up with a stiff neck or lower back pain. We tell them in the most basic terms that it is stress, which comes in three different forms; physical, emotional and chemical. The most common of these three that we see in the office are the physical and emotional stresses. Physical stress includes accidents, falls, prolonged computer work, heavy cell phone use etc. Emotional stress, as most people are aware of include stress over things like job stress, family stress and money stress. The third type of stress is chemical stress. This includes medication, tobacco (or vaping), processed foods, GMO foods and also a lack of water intake.
Back in the early 1900’s the founding Chiropractors sought out to discover why the bones of the spine would “rack” or move out of position exerting pressure on the exiting nerve and thus pain or dysfunction. Their research uncovered three types of stresses that became known as the three “T’s” or Thoughts, Traumas and Toxins. Thoughts represented the emotional stresses, Traumas were the physical stresses and Toxins were the chemical stresses.
We always encourage people to engage in proactive healthcare, and to visit us as soon as they feel pain instead of just waiting for it to disappear.
