Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free, surgery-free, hands-on approach to health and wellness that helps people live healthier, fuller lives.
While relying on natural healing from within, Chiropractors focus on the nervous system, the body's master system, and adjust the spine to remove nerve interference.
Chiropractors do this by identifying a subluxation --improper motion or position of the vertebrae--which can irritate the nerve and compromise the function of organs and tissues contolled by those nerves. Subluxations can be caused by physical, chemical, or emotional stress. The Chiropractor will then apply an adjustment to restore the proper function to your spine and remove irritation from the nerves improving the mind-body communication. This allows the body to function at an optimal level and heal itself as it was designed to do.
Chiropractic doctors are emerging as leaders in sport injury and care. They are not only experts in human biomechanics but also in the knowledge of anatomy and physiology needed behind these biomechanics to help athletes or weekend warriors perform at their best. The chiropractors at AIM work with athletes to restore the soft tissues involved in the injury but also to maintain effective motion in all joints. During the course of the treatment we will also provide the athlete with rehabilitation exercises to retrain any faulty movement patterns as well as provide education to prevent injuries from occurring in the future. Our number one goal is the same as that of the athlete; returning to training as soon as possible, reducing likelihood of future injuries and increasing performance while having fun!
Physical, environmental, and emotional stress is directly related to illness, so we always work with patients to help them eat well, move well, and think well in addition to keeping their spines and nervous systems healthy. This is what we refer to as the chiropractic lifestyle, which implements a lifestyle-centered Wellness and Prevention paradigm. The chiropractors at Aurora Integrative Medical, believe that regular chiropractic care in this paradigm creates the components for their patients to live longer, healthier, and more joyful lives.
