Chiropractic care is the science of carefully and precisely manipulating the spine and other joints in the body to achieve unhindered nerve flow, and in turn promoting pain relief, healing, and optimal health.
Chiropractors view the body as one massive network of nerves, where interferences in one area can quickly cause symptoms in another part of the body.
Accidents, sport related injuries, falls or even bad sleeping or sitting habits all contribute to spinal misalignments and nerve interferences to some degree. Much like a kink in a garden hose, such interferences can either pinch a nerve leading to pain, or diminish nerve flow to other critical parts of the body resulting in organ dysfunction, disease and poor health.
Unlike other areas of healthcare such as modern medicine where medication is used to address ailments such as back pain, chiropractic care avoids harmful and habit-forming drugs altogether, and instead, concentrates on correcting the misalignments responsible for pain through various techniques such as spinal adjustments, traction and decompression.
The end result is a well-functioning body free of nerve flow interferences. Not only will pain and discomfort be eliminated naturally, but organs such as the stomach, lungs and heart will function optimally again, resulting in elimination of acid reflux, less bouts with asthma, and even help with reducing hypertension and tachycardia.
Your First Visit
As with any doctor’s visit, your first visit to Trilogy Chiropractic will start with filling out some forms and detailing your medical history. You will then meet with Dr. David DeMey where you will have an opportunity to thoroughly discuss your health concerns and ask questions.
Typically a first visit will also include a physical examination as well as x-rays to help determine the right course of treatment for your specific condition. The doctor will go over the results of the exam, then recommend a course of treatment.
