Charleston, SC Chiropractors To Schedule Call 843 416-8218
The word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (action) and literally means “done by hand.” Instead of prescribing drugs or performing surgeries, chiropractors use manual treatments of the spine and joints, exercises, massage therapy, and nutritional and lifestyle changes to allow the body’s natural state of health to fully express itself. All of these therapies aim to reduce stresses on the nervous system, the most important system of the body. In this way, chiropractic isn’t only used for pain relief, but helps the entire body function on a higher level. Located in Mount Pleasant, SC and helping patients throughout the Charleston, SC area we are dedicated to ensuring our patients achieve and exceed their health goals, each and every day.
As Charleston area chiropractors, we focus primarily on the spine because the spine houses the nervous system. Any shift in the normal motion or alignment of the spine creates pressure in the joint space and irritates the exiting nerves at that spinal level. These nerves go to every organ, tissue and cell in your body, which is why the effects of chiropractic care can reach far beyond the spine. Many of our Mount Pleasant chiropractic patients receive regular adjustments to help improve GI function, athletic performance, menstrual or prenatal discomfort, asthma, and even infertility. Know that any time your nervous system is not functioning optimally, the surrounding musculature and related organ systems aren’t either. This can show up as pain, but often times presents as low grade muscle stiffness or weakness, chronic ingestion, numbness or tingling in limbs, or poor sleep to name a few.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments for back and neck pain, headaches, whiplash, scoliosis, sports injuries and many other types of musculoskeletal problems. It has been shown to be effective in reducing high blood pressure, improving immunity, decreasing the frequency of childhood ear infections and improving the symptoms of asthma.
Chiropractic is so much more than treatment for pain, injuries or accidents. Ultimately, the goal of the chiropractic treatment is to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health. This is achieved not only through manipulation, but through nutritional healing, restorative exercise, and even increased awareness of how we live, feel and move on a daily basis. The body has a remarkable ability to maintain and heal itself; chiropractic simply removes the interferences that stifle the body’s natural healing ability.
Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
