How does Chiropractic Care help with my health?

We need healthy bodies to live a satisfying and productive life. We need to be healthy for ourselves, our loved ones and our children. Chiropractic care helps with creating a healthy nervous system which is a major key to your health on a daily basis.


Why is Chiropractic a key to health & longevity?

Chiropractic is the largest alternative health profession in North America and the third largest health-care profession in the United States. Your muscles and nerves work together to keep you healthy. When neuromuscular block impedes the flow of nerve communication, the result is tension. A skilled chiropractor finds the blocks in your nervous system, therefore restoring your health and longevity.

Have you ever felt stress that impedes how you function on a daily basis? A skilled chiropractor is able to relieve that tension and restore relaxation and balance to your body. Relaxation feels inherently good to your body, doesn’t it?

When you experience pain and tension, we can give you relief

A visual and kinesthetic example of this block is when a wire is connected to a light bulb. If the block is severe enough, the light flickers. What do you think happens when a nerve is blocked by a vertebrae? Your blood vessels are guided by the nerve flow and your organs and muscles can’t get the essential energy needed to function during the day.

It is our hope that you have a better understanding of why a healthy nervous system is key to health and relaxation. At Stanford Chiropractic Center we can give you the individual pieces to your health. We are skilled finding the key to your nervous system stress and relieving that tension with skilled treatment. We also specialize in lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, pinched nerves, migraines and headaches, bulging discs, herniated discs, ruptured discs, allergies and many other pain causing symptoms. At Stanford Chiropractic Center we also treat sport’s injuries and car accidents.

Can Chiropractic care help children or the elderly?

Yes, Chiropractic care has a proven track record in providing care for all ages, infants and the elderly included. The reason being, throughout your life, your health is determined by how well your internal systems, organs, blood vessels etc. are functioning. Healthy nerves communicate to organs and blood vessels by electrical and chemical charges. Now you can see why the analogy of the light bulb and free flowing energy is appropriate. If electrical impulses are decreased, the light dwindles and eventually goes out. When nerves are blocked, some of the symptoms may be pain, tight muscles, fatigue and stressful tension. Chiropractic is a tried and proven treatment for subluxation (when a bone is out of alignment) which may create the previously mentioned conditions. Treating it for long-lasting relief is what a skilled chiropractor does.
