Most people believe that a chiropractor pops, cracks, or snaps back pain away, but there is so much more to the profession. In 1895, the first chiropractic adjustment was delivered to a man that had lost hearing in one ear. Following the adjustment, his hearing was restored. The founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer, believed that by removing subluxations (misalignments of your spinal vertebrae), many conditions could be helped. Through the science of chiropractic, passionate doctors are setting out to improve the health of millions without the use of pills, surgery, or further interference with the body's natural processes.
Chiropractic is a type of health care that works with the nervous system as well as the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose and treat injuries and disorders that involve the nervous system, muscles and bones. Our doctors work directly with the spine to remove any interference that may be preventing the body to heal itself, restoring natural processes within the body. Like all other areas in health care, new patients will receive a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications, and surgeries, and will undergo a basic physical examination. It is common, but not always necessary, to take x-rays in order to further establish the cause of pain, and to make sure there are no underlying condition. Once this process is completed, the doctor will use all of the information to establish a diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan.
Chiropractic care should not be limited to those suffering from back pain. People living with a number of different health conditions have so much to gain from chiropractic care. Life can be hard, and the amount of stress that it puts on the body is often underestimated. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments can help the body to function at its optimal potential.
Chiropractic is just as much about preventing injury and disease as it is about relieving pain from pre-existing conditions. Because chiropractic adjustments decrease the stress that is put on the nervous system and keep proper motion within the joints, it is common to find that the healing process is faster, and often the reduces or eliminates the need for medication altogether.
Chiropractic care benefits people of all ages. Chiropractic adjustments are individually tailored to suit each person's specific needs. If you would like to learn more about what chiropractic can do for you, contact our team at Life & Health Chiropractic and Massage Centre today.

A personal message from Dr. James Moss, DC:
"YOU! You're in pain! Possibly due to a car accident, or a work place injury, or maybe even something else entirely. You might have no idea why. It may have just started, or maybe it has been hurting on and off for a long time. Either way, you're tired of it!
It has been repeatedly sapping you of your quality of life, making work and everyday activities more difficult. You've tried ignoring it. You've tried self-medicating with over the counter drugs. Maybe you even caved, going and getting prescription drugs or physical therapy, but they didn't help the underlying cause. Something else is needed. Something that doesn't dull or distract from the pain, but addresses the cause directly. You want to be better. You deserve to be better.
You're right. You can be better. We here at Life and Health are very good at helping our patients do just that. We will work with you to meet or exceed your expectations of effective care for your health concerns. Click "The New Patient Center," and you'll begin to see what we mean.
It's time someone put your wellness first. Won't you join us?"
