"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a natural drug-free health profession that focuses on the nervous system. Components of the nervous system, the brain and spinal cord, transmit signals over the hundreds of nerves in your body, allowing all of your cells, tissues, and organs to function. Because this function is so essential to your health, the brain and spinal cord are surrounded by bone for their protection. The bones of the skull surround the brain, and 24 movable vertebrae protect your spinal cord. When the skull fixates or the vertebrae misalign, this can interfere with the messages transmitted along the nerves. Misalignment of the bones that protect your nervous system is called a subluxation, and it may inhibit mobility and cause pain or discomfort.

The goal of Dr. Scott Thurston is to find all areas of interference to the nervous system and correct them. He frees you from pain or discomfort by finding the source of the problem and correcting it. He does this by giving adjustments (physical movement of bones) to correct your misaligned joints. Many times treatment is also provided to the surrounding muscles and soft tissue structures. With this type of treatment, nerve interference is alleviated, which helps prevent pain and other symptoms from returning. A body with a healthy nervous system is a healthy body.

The importance of prevention should not be overlooked. To achieve total wellness, it is essential that you become involved in your own recovery. The best results come from a combination of chiropractic adjustments and living a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Scott Thurston is ready to be your partner in your care.
