Chiropractic care is healthcare that is natural, effective, and safe. It can restore your healing capabilities for increased energy and vitality. In addition, chiropractic provides true correction rather than temporary relief and takes a preventative approach to help you before you get sick. If you are feeling run down, experiencing pain, or feeling as if you are not reaching your full potential, then chiropractic care may be the answer for you.


What is Chiropractic?

The central nervous system, made up of the brain and spinal cord is the master control system of the body.

The brain communicates with the body via the spinal cord and nerves, but the spine itself can shift out of alignment, creating pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, which causes neck pain, back pain, irritation, and even leading to dysfunction of cells, organs and tissues. Chiropractic care is the practice of correcting these misalignments, through the use of precise analysis, and specific, gentle adjustments to re-align the spinal bones and allow the body to function and heal.

Traditional healthcare has been centered around one's symptoms and the relief of those symptoms. Even many chiropractors specialize in providing temporary relief care. However, this was never the intended purpose of Chiropractic. From its inception in 1895, Chiropractic was designed to be a Principled form of healthcare, meaning that its goal is to locate and identify the underlying cause of one's health concerns and correct them at the source.

The Medical Model looks at your body after you're already showing symptoms of sickness, and thinks about how to treat those. With over 2,000 different diseases and syndromes, you can imagine there are just as many combinations of treatments. This is a symptom and disease approach based on treating your health issues after they've already impacted you.

The Chiropractic Model is a preventative, all-natural, drug-free form of healthcare that affects your health condition at the root cause of the issue. Dr. Tom Niemela's focus at Arbor Vitae Chiropractic is to correct subluxations in the spine to allow your nervous system to function properly. Your body is constantly adapting to stress and other health issues, and chiropractic plays a role in helping to restore it to normal, healthy function.
