The primary treatment of the Doctor of Chiropractic is an “adjustment” to those areas of the spine or surrounding joints which are slightly displaced and fail to function normally. The adjustment will restore proper alignment and function to the spinal joints, thereby restoring the normal nerve transmission and healing potential to the vital structures of the body. Injuries like sprains (eg. ankle), strains (eg. pulled muscles), tendinitis (eg. tennis elbow) and bursitis (eg. shoulder pain) and joint problems in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot can all be treated effectively with chiropractic care. These are all good reasons to seek chiropractic care. However, the beauty of Chiropractic is not only drug-free and surgery free care, but also preventative and performance enhancing care. Maintaining proper alignment will allow athletes to be prepared for their sport. Many of the greatest athletes in the world are adjusted before competition as a “tune-up” in an effort to place their bodies in a state of peak efficiency. Following competition, they are adjusted to enhance the recuperative process after the stress of their particular event. When asked about chiropractic’s effectiveness, Roger Craig, formerly of the San Francisco 49’ers, stated, “We won four Super Bowls in the 1980’s with it, so it must be doing something right!”
