What is Chiropractic?
By Dr. Eugene Goldberg

Dr. Eugene Goldberg

Chiropractic is a natural form of healing that looks at the structure of the body in order to improve the function of the body. Meaning structure effects function. So therefore chiropractic isn't just good for pain, but it's good for your overall health, functioning and performance. What makes chiropractic unique is the "chiropractic adjustment." What we do is remove interference to the nervous system. You live your life through your nervous system. Every cell, tissue, organ and muscle is controlled by the master system-the nervous system. We correct misalignments along your spine and there are no side-effects. Only side-benefits. Meaning the patient gets well!

If you have pain, pins and needles, numbness or burning, it's usually due to a "pinched-nerve". Therefore you need a chiropractic adjustment, to take pressure off the nervous system, hence relief of the symptom. Your nervous system is hard-wired to your immune system. So when you get an adjustment, you raise your immune system-200-400%.

We know that the body heals itself. How? By first removing the interference in the nervous system. Also diet, exercise, life-style and nutrition also plays an important role for health and wellness. Life heals! We believe it is better to have a spine free from interference versus a spine with interference. We believe the body has an innate intelligence, which helps regulate the body to maintain health and homeostasis.

Did you ever hear of the expression: "Oh, he's just a bundle of nerves?" Well it's true because if you took all your nerves and laid them end-to-end, they would go around the globe-2 1/2 times! You have 24 moveable vertebrae in your back and in your spine, and if one gets out of alignment, you can't adjust yourself.

What makes chiropractic different and unique is that we take a holistic approach to health. Meaning we treat the whole person. We believe that disease means dis-ease, or not at ease. We find out why, and we correct it through-chiropractic adjustments, diet, exercise, and nutrition. We can actually adjust any joint in your body, including your wrist, shoulder, knee, ankle and TMJ. People don't realize that you don't lose energy because you get old, but you get old because you first lose your energy!
