The Benefits of Chiropractic

Dr. Sara Mancuso

When most people hear anything about chiropractic, they automatically assume someone is getting their back or neck adjusted, or that they have sustained some sort of spinal injury, but did you know there are so many more benefits a chiropractor can offer?

Chiropractic is the fastest-growing natural healthcare profession in the world. Discovered in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa, chiropractic care is so much more than fixing a symptom of pain; it works on the entire nervous system. When someone has a subluxation in their spine, it can cause dangerous stress to the spinal cord and the delicate spinal nerves that exit the spine between the spinal bones. This nerve interference causes the body to lose its ability to function optimally, and, as a result, negative health symptoms can arise, including pain, earaches, digestive distress, allergies, immune stress, sleep issues, and a weak immune system. Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. There are many different chiropractic techniques used to treat these issues.

At Absolute Health, we focus on the whole body; we look at the big picture to try and find the root cause of patients’ problems, not just putting a Band-Aid on symptoms. We offer some of the best techniques in chiropractic, such as Diversified, Sacro-Occipital Technique, The Neuro Emotional Technique, Active Release Technique, Activator Methods, and The Brimhall Technique. We also incorporate nutritional counseling and other wellness treatments to support the whole system, including naturopathic medicine, intravenous therapy, biofeedback and neurofeedback, advanced allergy therapeutics, and massage therapy. 

All of our doctors are focused on working as a team and using all of our tools to give our patients the best health care possible. We look forward to helping you, your friends and family in the near future.
