Chiropractic is the art, science, and philosophy focused on the central nervous system as the master control system for all other systems and functions in the body. The application of Chiropractic has a very broad scope but it most commonly utilizes mobilization of “stuck joints” in order to remove interference from the nervous system, allowing the body to heal itself as it was designed to do. Since the spine is intimately related to the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves, mobilization is most often performed to this extremely important area of the body. In most chiropractic care centers, “stuck joints,” are referred to as “subluxations,” and the mobilization of these injuries is referred to as an “adjustment.”
At our chiropractic care center, we focus mostly on rapid and long-term pain relief from a variety of spine and nervous system related conditions. These can include but are not limited to headaches, low back pain, neck pain, whiplash and other auto injuries, and degenerative, bulging or herniated discs. All of our treatment plans are custom designed with the patients age and diagnosis in mind and as a family chiropractic care center can be tailored to patients of all ages from infants to seniors.
At Dean Chiropractic, we commonly utilize a two-pronged approach to pain relief and injury rehabilitation at our chiropractic care center. The first step is to provide the patient with pain relief as rapidly as possible without the use of expensive and ineffective surgeries or dangerous and addictive medications. This is done with a combination of in office therapies including, electrical stim to reduce muscular spasm and cold laser to control the inflammatory process and rapidly alleviate pain. The second step is correct the underlying cause of the problem to prevent it from returning or getting worse as the patient ages. This often includes custom designed chiropractic physical therapy programs to mobilize scar tissue and restore strength and spinal orthotics to restore normal posture and spinal curvatures to prevent future relapses.
