Chiropractic is a philosophy of healthcare that concentrates on helping the body function the way it was designed to. And what does that mean? Consider how many times in your life you had to REMIND your body to breathe, pump blood or digest food. These are functions of life that happen automatically. And they should happen without pain or discomfort.
When you do experience pain, chiropractic services can be your solution. Chiropractic is the most widespread natural method of healthcare in the world focusing on treating the cause of the physical condition rather than just the symptoms. It is based upon a very powerful premise that problems with the structure of the body – particularly the spine – can cause problems with the function of your body, especially within the nervous system. The spinal cord is the main pathway that communicates all information from your brain to the rest of your body. All of your movements, feelings and functions are controlled by this system. Therefore, a problem in the spine can adversely affect the spinal nerves as they come off the spinal cord. One common problem is a subluxation or misalignment of the bones in your spine. Subluxations can lead to many disorders including low back and neck pain, headache, shoulder pain, numbness of the extremities, sciatica and many other problems. These conditions result from an irritation or “pinching” of the nerves as they exit the spine and go to other parts of the body. The end result can be pain, discomfort and imbalance. Chiropractic treatments can help you return to your normal everyday activities pain free and with renewed energy.
The primary treatment that separates chiropractic from other professions is the chiropractic adjustment. An adjustment is a specific movement applied to a joint to restore proper motion and function, and eliminate nerve irritation. Once the spine is restored to proper function your body can better heal itself. Adjustments are safe and very effective in the hands of a qualified chiropractor in New Jersey. Dr Joe and the Cornerstone Chiropractic staff works with you to restore your health with a personalized approach to overall wellness – through spinal care, exercise, good nutrition and stress management.
