What Is Chiropractic?

Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.

While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Dr. Roy is called on to deal with shoulder, arm, forearm, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and foot joints as well as the muscles that support and control these joints. Allergies, insomnia, headaches, gastro-intestinal problems and many more issues are often reponsive to our work. By reducing interference to proper body function through chiropractic, problems seemingly unrelated to the main complaint often disappear as well.
