Chiropractic Care

When you think of chiropractic, what comes to mind? Many people jokingly refer to chiropractors as “bone crushers”, believing that they are interested only in the bones. It might surprise you to learn that chiropractors actually deal with the overall function of your body and how your health is affected by spinal joints specifically and related nerve system dysfunction.

All your joints are heavily loaded with a variety of nerve endings that help you move in a smooth manner, without any “hiccups”. Roughly 80% of these types of nerve endings are located in the spinal joint specifically and the information they provide is critical to normal function. If this system develops problems the result can be inflammation, severe pain, stiffness, and improper muscle function, among a host of other health issues. The art and science of chiropractic is knowing how to find those trouble spots and knowing where to apply the appropriate correction to allow the body to function normally again.

Why Medication Isn’t the Answer

You might think, “Why not just pop a pill if I’m in pain?” You always have that option, but consider this: a pill does not address why the problem exists in the first place. It’s designed simply to cover up your pain symptoms. Pain is often a sign of a deeper dysfunction in the body. Left unaddressed, that dysfunction can lead to bigger, more complicated problems.

When you have an examination, Dr. Pagenkopf will check you from head to toe. The many types of conditions we often see include:
