Sunnyvale Chiropractic . . . . . What is Chiropractic?
Care Through Chiropractic - Sunnyvale Chiropractic
At Sunnyvale Chiropractic, my focus is the preservation and restoration of your health. I specialize in locating and correcting subluxations.
Chiropractic Care . . . “Come for Relief, Stay for Health”
A subluxation is a complex joint restriction. As a result it causes an increase of pressure on the nerves of your body. This may influence the health of your joints. Muscles and organs can be affected by nerve pressure. In short, we can manage subluxations through chiropractic manipulation.
I work with my patients to correct the subluxations in their affected joints. During care, I can adjust the restriction in joints in a variety of ways. For instance, gentle non-force to more traditional manipulation may be appropriate for you. Depending on the specific needs for example, I use Diversified Adjustments, Activator Instrument, Thompson, Cox, or non force mobilization. Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all ages from infants to the elderly. The patients I have treated range in age from 7 days old to 95 years young. Therefore, I can tailor your treatment to your needs. My goal is to help my patients achieve better health.
Chiropractic is Base on Science
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls your body. For instance the nerves interact with every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, your spinal cord, and by the 24 moving bones of the spine. During everyday activities nerve irritation causes these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. To sum up, specific chiropractic adjustments will help your joints to recover from dysfunction.
A faint popping sound occurs during an adjustment. This sound is created by the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. To clarify, this is normal. Because nerves are present in all parts of your body, chiropractic adjustments are important. Adjustments of the knees, elbows, ankles, shoulders and other areas may give relief to associated pains. In addition other procedures help reduce inflammation, provide relief or enhance the healing process. For example, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, moist heat or cold packs may speed healing.
Chiropractic care is safer than aspirin, muscle relaxants and back surgery. Some patients get results quickly, but others may take longer to stabilize.
Many patients get adjusted regularly as preventative wellness care. For example, professional athletes such as Tiger Woods, Jerry Rice, Wade Boggs, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Evander Holyfield, to name a few, receive chiropractic care on a regular basis. Most Olympic and professional teams similarly have an on-staff chiropractor in addition to other healthcare providers.
