The purpose of Chiropractic Care at Whole Health Center is to provide the highest standard of excellence in chiropractic care, while pursuing continuous quality improvement and public education to help our patients achieve their maximum health potential through natural means.
Chiropractic health care, as stated by the Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "focuses on the relationship between function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and structure (primarily the spine) and how that relationship maintains and promotes the preservation and restoration of health." Chiropractic care emphasizes the body's natural ability to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery.
Spinal column joints often become misaligned or "subluxated" and lead to symptoms such as pain, stiffness, headaches, loss of motion, to name a few. Causes of subluxation are commonly the result of stress to the body which can come in the form of physical stress, chemical stress, or emotional stress. There are many factors that cause physiological changes to the body that disrupt muscle, tissue, and nerve tone. These may include major trauma (an accident, a fall, or a blow to the back) or micro-trauma over time (a change in posture, for example, behind the desk or computer).
Chiropractors have known about the dangers of subluxations for over one hundred years. Today, more scientific evidence is showing the dangers of subluxations and the health benefits of correcting them. To be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Our goal is to allow your body to return itself to the highest level of health possible by correcting health issues caused by subluxations. Chiropractors are the ONLY health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the troubles associated with a subluxation.
