At The Maxwell Clinic, Your Health Is Our Number One Concern
Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful foundation: a healthy spine and nervous system enables the body to respond to its environment appropriately and stay in BALANCE. This driving philosophy stresses the idea that many disease processes begin with the body’s inability to adapt to its environment. A chiropractor looks to address these imbalances by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body that is functioning improperly, without the use of drugs and chemicals.
Chiropractic Care Benefits: Correcting Subluxation
Spinal misalignments called subluxations interfere with your body’s ability to maintain balance (homeostasis), which can lead to illness. Subluxation occurs when one or more of the bones in your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on spinal nerves. This interferes with your nervous system, which controls and coordinates all the functions of your body function optimally beyond areas of pain. With a compromised nervous system, the body quickly begins to deteriorate, becoming UNBALANCED.
Dr. Maxwell is trained to locate and correct subluxations by performing a series of adjustments specifically designed to address these imbalances in the spinal cord and nervous system. A healthy nervous system lets your entire body function optimally beyond areas of pain.
Health problems are caused by anything from poor posture to serious auto injuries. Except for traumatic events, the problem is usually present well before you FEEL the pain. Pain is the last to appear and the first to go, so it is important to realize that being pain free does not equal HEALTH.
