Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the joints, muscles and nerves of the body. All of these structures must move freely in order for the body to function properly.
The reason for performing an adjustment or manipulation is to improve joint mobility (motion) or free up areas of restricted mobility within the joints of the spine and extremities. This lack of motion within a joint can lead to various issues ranging from painful movement patterns, dysfunctional movement patterns and altered nervous system activity.
Injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for an individual. Adjustments of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.
Dr Stanker will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
