The word “Chiropractic” is form the Greek words meaning “done by hand”. It emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery by focusing on the relationship between structure and functions of the body. All of this is achieved through gentle manipulation of the muscle skeletal system, primarily the spine. This will not only improve the functions of the joints and muscles, but will also free up the nervous system to its optimal ability.
At Elizabethtown Family Chiropractic we focus on the manipulation of the musculoskeletal system, primarily the spine, but we also offer other therapies to help relax muscles and/or reduce joint inflammation. Examples include hydro massage therapy, electrical stimulation therapy and ultra sound therapy. We also give lifestyle advice on diet and exercise, as these are equally as important as spinal care for optimal health.
