What is chiropractic care?

According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care focuses on musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders and the effects these disorders have on a person’s overall health. Not only can chiropractic care address pain in the neck, back, and joints, it can also serve to relieve symptoms associated with headaches, allergies, autism, and ADHD.

Who needs chiropractic care?

Everyone who has a spine can benefit from chiropractic care. The spine misaligns in order to protect the vast system of nerves known as the spinal cord. When this misalignment occurs, tension results and can cause miscommunication between the nerves of the body. With communication disrupted, the nervous system prompts the body to hold on to its defensive position more tenaciously than ever. While traditional chiropractic care involves forceful adjustments of the spine to allow the nervous system to restart its communication system, when such adjustments are administered in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and in a repeated manner, microscopic damage can result. This is why Dr. Travis employs a variety of state-of-the-art, low-force techniques to allow the body to correct the alignment of the spine for long-lasting, high-quality results.

My back doesn't hurt, will chiropractic care do my any good?

Yes! Even if a person’s back feels fine, systemic tension from misalignment of the spine can cause a variety of symptoms such as upset stomach, sleeplessness and depression. Studies have shown that chiropractic has been shown to regulate body chemistry for optimal health in patients who were not experiencing pain. A 2003 study published in the Annals of Medicine showed that administering force to the spine, such as that in a chiropractic adjustment, can help regulate cell chemistry and gene expression. This means that every aspect of a patient’s body, from heart rate and breathing to the immune system benefits from regular chiropractic care.
