What is Chiropractic?
based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of
every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your nervous system consists
of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by
the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many
everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position
or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill
health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and
help prevent nervous system dysfunction.
adjustments at our clinic are safe and effective . Mild discomfort may be
experienced following your first treatments if your joints have become very
fixated. However, special consideration will be given to minimize your
discomfort. Dr. Bauduin uses only very gentle techniques.
The duration of your
care will depend upon your body's unique response. Relief of painful symptoms is
the goal of the first stage of your care. Neither the doctor nor the patient can
predict how long your process of healing will take.
Sometimes it is recommended
that acupuncture treatments be combined with chiropractic to maximize healing.
Dr. Bauduin is your holistic health doctor for chiropractic in West Central
