If you've never had chiropractic care, you may be surprised that chiropractic can improve your health. Dr. Dale Patrick has been providing chiropractic care to people in the Raleigh area for many years. He utilizes natural, hands-on care that doesn't involve risky drugs or surgery.
Chiropractic was first developed in the 1890s, and it works by restoring the normal and healthy functioning of your central nervous system by adjusting the spine. The term "chiropractic" originates with the Greek words "chiro" and "praktikos," which mean "hand" and "practice."
Every function of your body is controlled by your central nervous system, and this function can be disrupted by misaligments in your spine. These are called subluxations. A subluxation creates interference in the function of your spinal nerves, and this can result in impaired functioning of your organs and endocrine system. Chiropractic adjustments are simply a way to remove that interference and restore the natural function of your body.
Many people have the idea that chiropractic care is just a great way to treat back and neck pain. While it's true that chiropractic is often far better than medical care for such problems, chiropractic can also promote general health and wellness in order to prevent health issues. When your body isn't functioning properly, you experience illness, disease or pain. However, your body has an incredible, innate ability to heal itself and be well.
If you have never seen a chiropractor, consider taking a new approach to your health and wellness. Patrick Chiropractic is currently accepting new patients. Call our office today at 919-790-2288 to schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Patrick.
