Chiropractic Care
at Schultz Chiropractic & Acupuncture

The word “chiropractic” stems from two Greek words – “cheir,” meaning “hand,” and “praktos,” meaning “done.” When you put the two words together, you get “done by hand.” Unlike traditional medicine, chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free approach to health care. It is often done by hand, or manually, promoting wellness through the health of the central nervous system.

For years, chiropractic care has been used as a natural way to ensure health and wellness. Schultz Chiropractic & Acupuncture proudly offers chiropractic care to people of all ages and lifestyles. Learn more about our natural approach to health care and what we might be able to do for you.

Adjustment on patientChiropractic care encourages overall health by taking care of the central nervous system. The central nervous system, made up of the brain and the spinal cord, is the control center of the human body. When you are misaligned, your central nervous system is unable to properly communicate with the rest of your body. This ultimately leads to illness, including symptoms such as pain and discomfort.

According to the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), the five most common effects of misaligned vertebrae are

  • Bone malalignment
  • Compressed nerve tissue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Inflammation
  • Degenerative changes

We use chiropractic adjustments to realign the body, naturally removing any interferences getting in the way of optimal function and utmost health.
