What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between your spine, nervous system and muscle system. Realizing that all movement is controlled by the brain, clear communication pathways are needed for proper movement patterns of the body and proper muscle function. Poor alignment in the spine and body, in addition to poor spinal flexibility and stability contribute to a wide variety of patient complaints. Areas that may be affected include the back, neck, hips, shoulders arms and legs. Pain is a common symptom in all these areas.

Chiropractors use spinal manipulation as one of the main tools in the treatment of patients, although many other soft tissue therapies are also employed.

Our chiropractic treatment goals include (but are not limited to) some combination of:

  • Reducing pain
  • Improving flexibility and motion
  • Restoring function to the body
  • Increasing energy, strength, balance and endurance
  • Preventing future episodes
  • Improving sleep
  • Reducing stress
  • Improving wellness

At Edgemont Chiropractic Clinic, we are here to help you get the relief you want and assist you in reaching your health goals, whether it’s just relief of your current symptoms or helping you transform your health to a stronger and more resilient body.

As our population ages, research is clear that frailty in advancing years can be avoided.  A predictor of disability and weakness with age is a lack of mobility and strength early in life. Many people become disabled and frail due to direct and indirect results of back and neck pain. We can help.
