The Wellness Center of Boca Raton
BY DR. DAVID WARREN
Chiropractic is a total and preventive approach to health, focusing on wellness rather than disease. Chiropractors use a natural, drugless, non-surgical approach to health care. They consider all aspects of the patient's life: family history, work, lifestyle, environment, diet, exercise and the patient's physical and emotional stress factors. They place special emphasis on the care of the spine.The primary means of chiropractic care is the spinal adjustment a
short and painless thrust against the spine using only the doctor's hands. Spinal adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, which are changes in the position of the spine that do not allow the spine to function properly. When the spine is subluxated, the nerves in that area may behave abnormally and cause pain or other problems. The intent of a spinal adjustment is to restore normal motion, function and nerve impulse flow.
Although relief from back pain prompts many patients’ initial visit to a chiropractor, ongoing chiropractic care is an essential part of the well equation. For Dr. Warren, education is a strong component of each and every patient relationship. Here is a portion of the doctor’s explanation of chiropractic care and a few of its benefits. Chiropractic is effective because it works with the body’s master control system -the central nervous system. By using a variety of techniques, chiropractors are able to remove nerve irritation caused by spinal misalignment. Removing the nerve irritation improves body function and reduces pain while restoring structural balance.
