WELCOME TO QUEST CHIROPRACTIC
Many people believe that chiropractic care is only for back pain and injury, but this is far from the case. Chiropractic treatment can have a variety of positive benefits for a wide range of physical ailments and conditions, from chronic pain to general discomfort. In fact, many patients who come to us simply want help relaxing their muscles and restoring balance to their body due to the impacts and strains of everyday life.
By properly aligning the spine, the human body can meet the high levels of activity that our busy lives require, and can work to properly self-heal through alignment.
As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Quest Chiropractic receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created.
A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
