What is Chiropractic?

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”

Plaza Chiropractic is going to smooth the relationship of your spine and how it works with your body. If you’re experiencing pain or have suffered an injury, the reconnection between the two elements of your body will leave you feeling much better! Our goal at Plaza Chiropractic is to restore the wellness throughout your whole body.

How it Works

You already know that your nervous system is the master “control tower” of your body. Your nervous system and your spine work so closely together, that if the relationship between the two is interrupted by injury, muscle spasms, tissue inflammation and joint pain it naturally affects your entire body.

To alleviate this pain, Dr. Shapiro will check the patient’s spine for misalignments, fixations and other abnormalities. Chiropractors use different techniques to help patients ranging from a wide variety of specialized techniques including spinal adjustment, massage, dietary and nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and lifestyle modification programs.

Making the Difference

You might be wondering, if I am in pain, why wouldn’t I just go to a physician? What is the difference between treatment by a physician and treatment by a chiropractor? While a physician might prescribe pain medication to alleviate your pain, chiropractors generally take a more holistic approach attempting to treat the cause rather than the symptom using natural methods.

Plaza Chiropractic is dedicated to patient education, health and safety. Dr. Shapiro and the staff are happy to answer any questions you might have regarding your experience, treatment and home care.
