Chiropractic treatment is based on the diagnosis and treatment of misalignments of joints. It uses spinal manipulation/adjustment to restore motion to those misalignments and proper function to the nervous system.
Chiropractic adjustments use a precise force to a specific segment of the spine to correct any misalignment of the spine allowing for normal nerve transmission to assist the body in healing naturally without the use of drugs or surgery. These misalignments can reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its environment. The slightest misalignment of the spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in the treatment of spinal joints, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. At Renewed Wellness we make it our mission to ensure all moveable joints are performing with optimal function.
Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally to help your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease.

Is chiropractic treatment effective?
Yes. Chiropractic treatment helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can alter nervous system function. Chiropractic treatment allows our body to heal from the inside out by restoring natural homeostasis and removing all interference that inhibits this process. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function optimally.
What is a chiropractic adjustment? Is it safe?
Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the quick movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have lost their normal motion and/or position. This can happen due to several reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When vertebrae do not have their normal motion and position, this has a negative effect on our musculoskeletal system and central nervous system. Properly delivered adjustments can corrects this.
The risks associated with chiropractic are very small. Many patients will feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness or aching like that of someone who performs exercise.
