Chiropractic


page-eveChiropractic is a natural, drugless, non-invasive complete health care system. Dr. Eve Bernstein bases treatments on the premise that the body has the ability to self-heal if given the right tools. Your body is a beautiful functional system that wants to feel good and be well.

Focusing on the Skeletal Structure

Chiropractors pay particular attention to the skeletal structure, specifically the spine. We are interested in discovering the origin of the problem. Although symptoms provide helpful information, we do not necessarily treat the symptoms.

Focusing on the Root of the Problem

We are much more interested in the root of the problem. In this way, our approach may differ from prior care you have received. For example, if you experience recurring headaches, your conventional doctor might prescribe painkillers. Our approach is to understand what is causing your headaches so that we can fix the problem rather than masking symptoms.

Subluxation

A subluxation is a misalignment of the spine. The word “subluxation” comes from the Latin words “sub”, meaning “somewhat or slight,” and “luxare,” meaning “to dislocate.” So the term ‘vertebral subluxation’ literally means a slight dislocation or misalignment of the bones in the spine. The bones of the spine protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a link to every system in the body. The nerves run up and down the spine like cars on a freeway, and as they exit the freeway they branch off to other parts of the body. Since nerves pass through the vertebrae, a misalignment causes a kink in the system. The pathway becomes cluttered, and the off ramp may become congested as in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Pain Management

In the case of a headache, you experience pain.The pain is both mechanical and chemical. What causes this? Causes range from sleeping “funny” to an auto collision, or — believe it or not — an allergic reaction to food. Any stressor from inside or outside the body can create irritation. All of this can lead to a disruption of nerve impulses.
