YOUR PITTSBURGH CHIROPRACTOR
Chiropractic is a natural form of healing that looks to the structure of the body in order to improve the function of the body.Meaning, structure effects function. So therefore chiropractic isn’t just good for pain, but it’s good for your overall health, functioning and performance. What makes chiropractic unique is the “chiropractic adjustment.” What we do is to remove interference to the nervous system.
You live your life through your nervous system. Meaning, every cell, muscle and organ is controlled by the master system, the nervous system. We correct misalignment along your spine and there are no side-effects. Only side-benefits. Meaning the patient gets well!
- Do you feel pain in your back or neck?
- Have you ever suffered a spinal injury?
- Are you looking for life-style or nutritional help?
If you have pain, pins and needles, numbness or burning, this means you have a “pinched-nerve.” Therefore you need a chiropractic adjustment, to take pressure off the pinched nerve. Your nervous system is “hard-wired” to your immune system. So, when you get adjusted, you raise your immune system 200%.
We know that the body heals itself. How? By first removing the interference in the nervous system. Also we do diet, exercise, life-style and nutrition. These play an important part in one’s overall health and wellness. Life heals! We believe it is better to have a spine free from interference, verses a spine with interference. We believe that the body has an innate intelligence, which helps regulate the body to maintain health and homeostasis. The default setting of the human body is health and wellness. So if someone is sick or in pain, we find out the underlying root cause of their symptoms and we fix it and correct it. Did you ever hear of the expression: “Oh, he’s just a bundle of nerves? Well, it’s true because if you took all your nerves and laid them end-to-end, they would go around the globe- 2 and 1/2 times! You have 24 movable vertebrae in your spine, and if one gets out of alignment you can’t adjust yourself.
What makes us different is that we take a holistic approach to health. Meaning we treat the whole person. We believe that disease means: dis-ease, or not at ease. We find out why and we correct it through: chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, diet, lifestyle, exercise, massage and nutrition. We can actually adjust any joint in your body including carpal tunnel syndrome, knees, shoulders, and TMJ. People don’t realize that you don’t lose energy because you get old, but you get old because you first lose your energy!

There is definitely a cause and effect relationship between the neck and the upper extremity. Meaning, at the base of your neck, is a network of nerves called the brachial plexus. These nerves innervate the upper extremity the shoulder, upper arm, the elbow, and all the way down into the wrist, hand, and fingers. A
Chiropractic care gets excellent results with fibromyalgia. Why? Because when there is a pain in the neck, the back or the upper and lower extremities, nine times out of ten it involves a pinched nerve.

Acid Reflux/GERD Acid Reflux Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents (food or liquid) leak backward from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms. Of course, heartburn has nothing to do with the
