Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. As chiropractors, we are able to determine how these dysfunctions can affect our current health.
It is a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment. In addition to broad diagnostic skills, Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises and provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle assistance.
Experience the Difference
Spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment is the most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors. This restores joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of tissue injury. Tissue injury, whether from a single event or repetitive stress, causes the tissue to undergo chemical and physical changes that can include inflammation, pain, and diminished mobility and function. Restored mobility, through adjustment, can alleviate pain and muscle tightness assisting in tissue repair. Chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment or be used to complement and support traditional medical treatment, depending on the nature and cause of the condition. Doctors of Chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, imaging, and other diagnostics to determine when, how, and where chiropractic treatment is appropriate. Additionally, routine Chiropractic treatment can assist in the prevention and maintenance of overall health.
Our bodies deal with stress on a daily basis and Chiropractic care can support the body's own natural ability to heal.
What's Our Approach?
Here at ANH Wellness, we have a very gentle approach.
We like to make sure our patients are educated and fully understand how their individualized care plan specific for their needs is going to help them heal and function properly. Patient education is a very important part of our practice. At ANH Wellness, we also include myofascial work into most of our treatments if it's appropriate. Increasing blood flow and nerve flow is important to help the body function optimally. Some patients are concerned about adjusting, but with different modalities at ANH Wellness, we are able to restore joint mobility in a way that is more comfortable for the patient and still provides a therapeutic healing response.
