How Chiropractic Treatments Work:
The philosophy behind chiropractic care is remarkably simple. In fact, it can be summed up in just 3 key points.
- Your back pain or condition exists as the result of an injury, stress, or spinal misalignment. The pain is there to alert you to the problem much like a fire alarm would alert you to a fire. The pain itself is NOT the problem; the injury, stress or misalignment is the problem! If you want to beat the pain and get well, you’ll have to fix the problem.
- Your body possesses an inborn capacity for healing. Have you ever marveled at how quickly your body repairs itself after you cut your finger or even break a bone? Perhaps the most profound truth in all medicine is this: the body already knows how to heal. The most gifted physicians simply help it along.
- Chiropractic targets the actual problem by helping the body to self-correct. Through painless, targeted, hands-on treatments called adjustments, Dr. Overton will gently correct the injury, stress, or misalignment that is causing you pain or condition. Then the body responds by healing itself!
