Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive approach focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders and the musculoskeletal system. Your spine is made up of 24 vertebrae which enables your body to move and function. The spine plays an integral role to your health by protecting the nervous system which enables you to move your muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints.
If your spinal health is not optimal, it can affect your overall health and impose negative consequences on your body. When two vertebrae are not functioning optimally, a joint dysfunction occurs, which is called a subluxation or misalignment. These joint dysfunctions result in pain and decreased mobility. Our focus is to correct these misalignments in the spine through manipulations. Through chiropractic care, muscle tension can be alleviated by reestablishing the proper motion and function in your joints. Chiropractic care will enable you to restore neuro-musculoskeletal and nervous system health so that you can move and function better.
You don’t have to be in pain to see a chiropractor. In fact, pain is often the last symptom of dysfunction, indicating that your condition has already advanced to a point that necessitates attention. Factors in your day-to-day, such as poor posture, can misalign your spine. Your chiropractor will optimize your spine health and overall health; the chiropractors at Manhattan Total Health take a holistic approach and look at the body as a whole and may recommend changes to your lifestyle, diet, and posture as a part of your treatment.
