"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Health is a state of optimal functioning, and not merely the absence of disease. The goal at Alta Chiropractic is to assist people in getting to a state of health and wellness as quickly as possible. Sometimes, using Chiropractic healthcare can take a little longer to achieve relief because our aim and intention is to treat the cause of the pain rather than just eliminate your symptoms. The underlying cause in many cases is the lack of alignment, and thus restoring balance and alignment will be the primary focus of our care and treatment.
Your body has an innate ability to restore its health and strive for homeostasis. The nervous system needs to be functioning effectively for that to occur, and at times the body is temporarily unable to adapt to life's stressful moments. This imbalance alters some functions of the body resulting in restricted motion and misalignment of the spine. This can cause an irritation of the nervous system because the nerves and spinal cord are encased within the spinal column, which functions as a conduit for information passing within the body. Chiropractic corrects these misalignments, restoring this vital brain-body connection and thus allowing the body to regain its optimal functioning, homeostasis and vitality.
Proper spinal health is a new concept for many people, so we are here to answer any questions you may have. Alignment and balance are what we strive for ~ in the spine, body and life.
