What is Chiropractic?

WelcomeKennesaw  Chiropractic is a safe and natural form of healthcare that links the importance of proper spinal alignment to one's well being. With a properly functioning nervous system, the brain can communicate to the body via the nerves that exit the spine and travels to all parts of the body. A spinal misalignment causes swelling of the local tissues surrounding the spine and leads to compression of a spinal nerve. Compromise of a spinal nerve can cause a "short circuit" in the communication between the brain and the body. This is called a subluxation. It can cause symptoms like pain, weakness, numbness, tingling or burning. Other symptoms may include headache, dizziness, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea and fatigue. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms are present a lot of damage has already been done. That's why it's important that everyone, young or old, be checked for subluxations. Our doctors can examine your spine with the help of X-rays to determine if and where your subluxations are located and make gentle corrections to the spine to alleviate the "pinched nerve" and restore proper brain to body function. If we feel that Chiropractic can not help your condition we'll assist you in finding the appropriate healthcare professional.
