Part of the chiropractic approach involves determining whether the body’s natural structure has caused problems with the functions in other areas of your body because of reactions in the nervous system. Structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord by affecting the normal communication of information from the brain to the rest of the body.
Our Hampton Roads chiropractor office focuses on a ‘whole person approach’ which manages not only the patient symptoms, but seeks to address the underlying causes of the injury and disease. By conducting healthcare in this manner, Accordo Chiropractic gets to the base of the problem and provides long term solutions rather than temporary relief provided by medication.
The Importance of Spinal & Posture Screening at our Clinic
Back pain, neck pain and various other physical ailments often originate in the spine but in order to provide a comprehensive treatment plan to alleviate the symptoms, an exact cause must be determined. A spinal and posture screening serves as the initial step to formulating a specific solution to the health problem. It can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall health and provide a base for an effective course of action.

Chiropractors utilize various techniques and instruments in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by the misalignment of vertebrae called subluxation. Chiropractic restores balance to the body through adjustments to the spinal bones which normalizes joint motion, removes nerve interference, relieves stress and pain, and optimizes normal body function. Chiropractic is especially effective in the treatment of low back pain, neck pain, and headaches as well as in the improvement of flexibility and range of motion; some of the major reasons why the profession has become the second largest primary health care field in the world.
