What Is Chiropractic?
Health care provided by doctors of Chiropractic focuses on the condition of a patient’s musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractic care provides restoration and maintenance of these systems, without using drugs or surgery. It is important to realize that the nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. Chiropractic works to free any interference of the nervous system. United Joint & Spine Center uses a whole body approach that incorporates multiple techniques that can be utilized to treat the spine and extremities.
What is an Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments are designed to restore function to a joint that’s not moving properly. The action of the technique may be a quick thrust or a slow pressure. This can be done by hand or by using a specialized chiropractic instrument. The technique that Dr. DeMaio chooses for you will depend on your specific needs.
