At Campbell Medical Group, our goal is to relieve your pain and restore you to youthful functionality while avoiding the use of drugs or surgery. For many of our patients, chiropractic care is an essential part of accomplishing this goal.
Chiropractic care involves restoring movement and correct positioning to the joints of the body, most particularly the joints of the spine. When joints can move freely through the full range of motion they are designed for, you’re able stand, sit, walk and reach easily and you’ll feel your strongest.
Nerve messages, blood and other fluids and nutrients can flow more easily through your body. This helps inflammation or injuries heal faster.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
A chiropractor checks the alignment and free movement of your joints with his hands. He may also utilize x-rays and a variety of instruments for this examination. He (or she) then adjusts the position of one or more joints with precise hand movements. Many chiropractors use special tools to aid this precision movement.
These adjustments are made after making a careful analysis of your health which may include taking your medical history and noting any medications you are taking.
Who Needs Chiropractic Care?
Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care. Newborn babies may suffer trauma during birth and chiropractors can help ease spinal vertebrae back into a more comfortable position. Dancer and athletes who may suffer from overuse injuries can find relief by receiving gentle chiropractic adjustments. Aging patients often find that the stiffness and loss of function that can result in later years can be relieved through chiropractic care.

What Attracts People to Chiropractic?
When a physical pain or disability is eliminated with chiropractic care plus nutritional advice and exercise, many people are able to avoid the use of over-the-counter painkillers, prescription drugs, or surgery.
