Chiropractic Care in Portland, MaineChiropractic Practice Specializing in Multiple Techniques
Just what is chiropractic care? And what can it do for you?
We are to the musculoskeletal system what dentists are to teeth. Back, neck, and joint pain; sciatica; arthritis; and sports injuries are some of the common issues that chiropractic treats, but it goes way beyond that. At Integrative Chiropractic, we use chiropractic care to achieve whole-body wellness.
Chiropractors are experts in how your nervous system interacts with the rest of your body. For example, when the brain sends signals to tell your heart to pump blood or tell your legs to walk, it’s sending these signals along the collection of nerves that extend down your spine and through the rest of your body. Through every day activities, the vertebrae that run along your spine can become misaligned and pinch some of the nerves in the spinal chord. When this happens, it can cause pain and interrupt the brain’s signals, preventing your body from responding optimally.
Using specific adjustments and other treatments, we can correct these spinal misalignments (sometimes referred to as subluxations) and restore normal nerve transmission, enabling your body to function like the perfect machine that it was designed to be.
Each person is adjusted differently, just as no two people are the same. Dr. Hayes can’t adjust a 3 day old infant the same way as a 90 year old. Safe, effective and gentle adjustments, a program tailored to specific needs it what you will find.
