Chiropractic Care

What Is It?

Chiropractic care primarily treats the spine, which houses the spinal cord (you can think of it as the fuse box of the body). All the nerves that come out of the spine go to a specific portion of the body, whether it be your hands, feet or an organ. When there’s interference in the nervous system, it’s similar to a short in your system. The adjustment repairs that short by removing the interference so your body is able to function optimally. We influence the central nervous system through the spine and the extremities by adjusting the body.

What Are Some Benefits?

With chiropractic care, the joints can move more freely, promoting better function. You may find that you can turn your head fully, bend over easier and tie your shoes effortlessly. You also may feel euphoric following an adjustment and completely relaxed. Many people sleep like a baby after their first adjustment!

He has many techniques at his disposal to give you the gentle, effective care you need.

Prevention Is Key

Think about brushing your teeth each day to prevent cavities. Similarly, when you see the chiropractor on a regular basis, you can prevent decay in your spine. We find, for example, that when a patient who regularly receives wellness care experiences an injury they heal much faster and recovery is much easier.

Dr. Brotherton often likes to use the analogy of a car with his patients. “I like to have patients think of themselves as a car. Let’s say you were born in 1954 – I’d say you’re a 1954 Cadillac. If you don’t do any maintenance on the frame, the car will inevitably deteriorate and rust over time. In the same way, your spine is an integral part of your frame and requires the same type of maintenance care – without it, you’ll inevitably experience ‘rust’ in the form of degeneration or arthritis.”
