Most people believe that chiropractors treat back pain. That is a true, but there is so much more that chiropractic care can achieve.

Because chiropractors help to remove pressure from the nervous system, they can also influence many other conditions. It is common to hear chiropractic patients say that they came in for back pain, and their headaches got better.


Chiropractor Asheville NC

The benefits that chiropractors provide can be seen in a variety of health conditions. Even relatively healthy people can see improvements. Most of us put our bodies though a lot. Regular adjustments can help to restore balance within the body.

Your spine is designed to protect your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is responsible for moving information from your brain to the rest of your body. Your spine is the protective case for one of the most important parts of your body, and a Asheville chiropractor can help you maintain it.

Chiropractic Explained

If you are looking for an explanation of how chiropractic care works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect muscle and bone structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.

That's a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients in Asheville report improvement in body function. This is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat disease, but it does suggest that some people will see improvements in conditions that are outside of the treatment area.

The Education of a Chiropractor

Most patients don't realize how much education chiropractors in Asheville have. Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational standards of any health field. In fact their education standards are very comparable to that of medical doctor. After completing a strong emphasis of basic sciences in college, chiropractors attend a five year chiropractic college. This means that chiropractors are primary care physicians. In other words you don't have to have a referral to see a chiropractor.

What Our Patients Say

Ever since I’ve been coming to get adjusted I’ve seen a real, real, real big improvement. I hardly have any pain or stiffness at all now! I would recommend him to anybody!

George

I had a very bad migraine headache that day, and he explained to me what he was doing for my mom and he wanted to check me out. I listened to the explanation; he knew exactly where the pain was at in my back and has now cured my migraines by 90% and I think that is excellent!

Rita

Doctor Acton has done wonders on my legs, my hips, my back, everywhere! He has just done a fantastic job and I’d like to praise him for it!
