Pain can begin when we least expect it; from sports injuries to auto or work-related accidents to the wear and tear that everyday life can have on our bodies. Dr. Linn works to help relieve pain by using a hands-on, natural approach that focuses primarily on the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles, and bones).
The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation is to find joints that are not moving the way that they should and to correct them by applying a gentle and specific force to the restricted area to restore the natural movement of the joint. The result of restoring joint mobility and function is a decrease in pain, a decrease in muscle tightness, and an increase in range of motion. In addition, by restoring the natural joint movement, allows the tissues around the joint to heal properly.
A chiropractor is a health care professional who specializes in the health and function of the spine and nervous system because of this focus on the spine. Many people think chiropractors can only help with problems such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. And it is true that chiropractors can often help with these things, but there is so much more to chiropractic than just pain.
Chiropractic care is really about total health and wellbeing. It's about helping people to feel great and get the most out of life by functioning at their optimal potential. The spine is there to protect the spinal cord, which is part of the central nervous system. The spine is like a set of armor made up of segments so that it can bend and move naturally with the body. A spinal segment consists of two vertebrae and the joints that connect them, there is a disc between each vertebra that acts as a cushion underneath that Armor a whole lot is happening. Messages travel from around the body, up the spinal cord, and into the brain. The brain processes, those messages and sends replies back down the spinal cord to tell the body how to respond. The central nervous system is one big information highway and it carries vital messages to every part of your body.
