What We Do?

We remove pressure from the nervous system. Let me explain how we do that. Have you ever had a tiny rock or pebble in your shoe? How did that feel? It hurts. But why does it hurt? The pebble puts pressure on a nerve in your foot sending a pain message to your brain saying “something is wrong”. So you remove your shoe, dump out the rock and the pain is gone. That is how Chiropractic works.

Your nervous system controls everything in your body; for your eyes to blink, your heart to beat and your stomach to digest. All of your bones should be in a certain place. If any of the bones are out of place, it can put pressure on the nerves causing pain and dysfunction meaning whatever those nerves are going to aren’t going to work properly. Chiropractors find and detect those areas where bones are out of place and correct them.

So, stop suffering. Pain is not something you should have to live with every day. It’s simply not healthy for you or your body. So don’t wait. Call us today at (423) 238-2999 to schedule your first appointment and see if we might be able to help you!
