Why choose chiropractic for your health care needs? Why not go to your medical doctor or a physical therapist? For example, if you or someone you know has an episode of lower back pain, what are their options? The traditional medical approach would most likely be pain killers, anti-inflammatory medication, put heat on the affected area and come back in two weeks. They are addressing the symptoms of your problem not the cause. If you decide on physical therapy, an exercise program of stretching and possibly weights, ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation and heat. The treatment modalities given at physical therapists are good but they don’t address the main cause of your problem. And that problem is the vertebral subluxation. Your vertebral column houses the most important 24 inches of your body:016_16.gif your spinal cord. The nerves that exit the vertebral column provide function and sensory input to virtually every cell in your body. If there is any interference in that relay system, whatever that nerve provides function for won’t work correctly. All the other treatment modalities listed above only address the symptom (pain, numbness, tingling, headache, etc.) not what is causing that symptom.
Why Choose Hornickel Chiropractic Clinic

Once it is determined that you have a chiropractic problem we will utilize a hands on orthopedic exam, computerized muscle testing and an x-ray examination. On the second visit a detailed written report of findings will be given to explain your vertebral subluxation complex and what treatment is required to alleviate the pressure on the nerves that exit the spine. Our goal is to have a patient that is well informed on the cause of their problem and treatment plan that is tailored specifically for them to alleviate the interferences that are hindering them from achieving the health they desire.
