Q: What are a chiropractor’s qualifications?
A: Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misaligned spinal vertebra are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out to the muscles, organs and glands of the body. Learning to properly and safely correct these misalignments and restore normal bodily function requires years of study and practice.
Q: Why do patients seek chiropractic care?
A: Although several patient conditions have responded favorably to spinal care like sciatica, digestive troubles, menstrual problems, headaches or migraines, constipation, erectile dysfunction, whiplash, difficulty breathing, back pain, colic, and many more it is important to understand that the goal of chiropractic isn’t to treat the disease or condition but rather to enhance the patient’s health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress.
