Chiropractic with Dr. Wascow
Chiropractic medicine is based on the link between the alignment of the spine and the function
of the body. A core tenant of chiropractic medicine is the belief that the body has the ability to
heal itself if given proper support.
The brain controls everything in your body. The spinal cord and vast network of nerves carries
its messages to provide health in your body. When this system isn’t functioning correctly, your
body’s health and overall performance suffers. By correcting disturbances to this system, the
source of the problem is addressed and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
While it is perceived that chiropractors only treat back and neck pain, this is a small subset of
health issues that what we can help. We not only treat soft tissue problems like sciatica,
muscular strains and sprains, but also a variety of other health issues like severe menstrual
cramps, headaches, migraines, and osteoarthritis.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health.
Acupuncture uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. Each
meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with
vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, an acupuncturist is able to restore
balance and ergo health to the patient.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
- Different forms of Arthritis (Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis)
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes,
and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
