What is Chiropractic? Millions of important messages flow from your brain, down the spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange of information by irritating nerves. Chiropractic is the gentle manipulation of the spinal column and surrounding joint spaces. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve communication between the mind and body. This works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments usually involve a quick, gentle thrust that helps add motion to spinal joints that are not moving properly. By decreasing irritation to nerves, pain can be decreased and often eliminated.At O’Neal Chiropractic Health Center many services are available including exams, x-rays, massage and other therapies, cold laser therapy and spinal decompression. Dr. O’Neal is not only skilled in spinal adjustments but extremity adjustments (shoulders, elbows, knees, etc.) as well. He is also skilled in the Activator Method.
