Why should I choose Chiropractic Care?
At the heart of our chiropractic philosophy is this simple wisdom:
treat the problem itself, not just the symptoms. If you only look
at the symptoms, the underlying problem is still there and will
keep surfacing until it is corrected.
Chiropractic care is an effective method of treatment for many people
who suffer from back pain, neck pain, headaches and many other disorders
related to the body's neuromusculoskeletal system.
The science of chiropractic centers around the body's spine.
The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, which is the "switchboard"
through which nerve impulses are transmitted from the brain to all
parts of the body.
In the event of stress or an injury, misaligned
vertebrae can interfere with nerve transmissions and cause pain. Chiropractic treatment realigns the vertebrae so
the nerve impulses are not restricted, thus restoring proper spinal
function. It is this proper spinal function which is so very important
for the health of the entire human body.
Chiropractic is a proven safe and effective treatment for many conditions
and the secondary benefits are limitless in maintaining optimal
health. There are hundreds of studies validating the safety and
effectiveness of chiropractic care. At Gateway Chiropractic Center, we
would like to see as many people as possible benefit from chiropractic care.
What should I expect during an initial visit to your chiropractor service?
In most cases a 60 minute appointment is set up so that the doctors
can perform a complete case history and examination. Prior to your exam, our staff will help you with preliminary paperwork,
provide an explanation of insurance benefits, and answer any questions
regarding financial responsibility.
Once the examination has started, a complete history is taken so
that the doctor can fully appreciate the nature of your condition
and proceed with the proper examination. X-rays are often taken
which provide further information.
Depending on your condition, the doctor might provide
treatment on your initial visit or wait until a subsequent visit
when you have been provided with a full report of findings.
One of our goals at Gateway Chiropractic Center is to ensure that
you have a complete understanding of why certain tests are performed,
what the results of that testing indicates, and why certain treatments
are recommended. Educating you is one of our primary goals and this
begins from the minute you walk through our door.
