Chiropractic is a healing art that is primarily focused on freeing the nervous system to work to the best of its ability, improving your health. The central nervous system is housed in the skull and spinal column and small fixations (subluxations, sub-lux-A’-shuns) in the vertebrae can cause swelling at the joints that interfere with the functioning of the nerve as it exits the spine and travels to other parts of the body. This interference can be in the form of pain, numbness, tingling or simply lack of full function. Since everything within the body functions as a result of the nervous system, the ramifications of nerve interference and health are astounding.
There are many different techniques that chiropractors use. Some are very gentle and you hardly know you are being touched while others are more forceful. The doctor in most cases uses her/his hands or an instrument to aid in the ‘adjustment’. Dr. Ford uses many different types of techniques and designs your treatment to best meet your needs. She encourages the patient to provide feedback on treatments so that they can achieve maximum benefit with their highest comfort in mind.
