Chiropractic Care at Aligned Health Chiropractic
At Aligned Health Chiropractic, we focus on discovering the root cause of your problems, eliminating your pain, restoring your function and mobility, as well as educating you on health and wellness. Chiropractic care is not just about dealing with pain. While pain is something we help our patients with on a daily basis, chiropractic care goes far beyond pain relief. Dr. Schierer’s brand of chiropractic care revolves around your nervous system. Often the pain you feel is because of pressure on the nerves, which is caused by a subluxation (a misalignment) of the spine. Chiropractors correct the subluxation by gently realigning the spine back into its proper position. This releases the pressure on the nerve(s), corrects your problem, and brings you relief from your pain.
At Aligned Health Chiropractic we regularly help our patients with problems like:
- Athletic Injuries
- Back Pain
- Back Pain during Pregnancy
- Disc Injuries
- Gastrointestinal Issues
- Headaches & Migraines
- Lower Back Pain
- Menstrual Disorders
- Neck Pain
- Pinched Nerves
- And much more
The benefits of chiropractic care go far beyond simply providing relief from pain. The nerves, which run down inside your spine and then branch out throughout your entire body, control all the muscles, internal organs, and every function of the body. Your body relies on the nervous system to provide feedback to your brain so your body can not only function properly, but also keep you healthy, fight off viruses and infections, and heal properly. When subluxations (misalignments to the spine) pinch nerves, or even put pressure on your nerves, the information your brain needs to properly care for your body is compromised, making it harder for your body to properly care for itself.
As chiropractors, we recognize the body’s innate ability to heal and care for itself. When your spine is working properly it allows your body to heal faster, strengthens your immune system, and allows the organs and muscles in your body to function at the highest level.
Chiropractic Care Corrects Problems, Restores Health & Function, and Maintains Wellness
At Aligned Health Chiropractic we don’t treat symptoms (like taking a pill for a headache does), but recognize that these symptoms point to an underlying problem that needs to be treated and corrected. It is important to us to discover the source of your problem, and we have a wide range of examinations available to identify the source, including: chiropractic, neurological, orthopedic, acugraph, balance testing, computerized spinal mobility test and physical exams. We can also use non-invasive computer technology to enable us to detect how the various types of nerves in your nervous system are functioning, and even measure your body’s ability to adapt to internal stress. Once we have established the underlying source of your problem, we will take steps to correct the problem. We will put together, and review with you, a plan of care that will correct your problem, restore your health, and return proper function to your body.
Aligned Health Chiropractic can use various chiropractic techniques including chiropractic adjustments, pro adjuster, manual therapy, flexion-distraction / decompression, rehabilitative services, as well as massage therapy and acupuncture. Our goal is to provide relief and eliminate your pain, and through our adjustments restore normal function and health to your body. Because subluxations, or misalignments, can happen so many ways — poor posture, sleeping position, stress, sports, falls and other injuries, lifting objects, work, taking care of babies and children — seeing your chiropractor when problems arise can help you maintain your health and wellness.
