Chiropractic Adjustments & Wellness Care

Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, we emphasize restoring and maintaining your health to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Chiropractic is not a cure or treatment for any particular illness or disease — it’s a way of optimizing your nervous system, thus keeping your body functioning at full capacity.

Beyond The Back Pain

Subluxations in the spine have further impacts on your health and wellbeing. At Levitan Chiropractic, we don’t just treat the pain, but the underlying issues you’re experiencing for holistic relief. 

A subluxation occurs when a spinal bone (vertebra) moves out of position and causes an irritation to the surrounding spinal nerves. These nerves, which branch off of the spinal cord and exit between the bones of the spine, then malfunction and cause interference with the signals that travel to and from all parts of your body. It’s similar to an electrical short-circuit that can happen within the wiring system of your home.

Vertebral subluxations can stem from physical, chemical, and emotional causes:

  • Physical causes are related to the physical stresses of day-to-day living—bad posture and workstation habits, weak or imbalanced spinal musculature, repetitive motions, acute trauma/injuries, and the “bumps and bangs” of daily life.
  • Chemical causes are related to chemicals and toxins that are introduced into our body on a daily basis. These toxins come from the foods we eat, the liquids we drink, and the air we breathe. Sometimes they are intentional through drug or alcohol abuse. Other times they are unintentional such as poor diet and nutrition. Harmful chemicals and toxins decrease the body’s ability to function and impede our ability to deal with both internal and external stresses. 
  • Emotional causes pertain to stress. Medical research has proven that emotional stress adversely affects physical health. When stress levels grow to extreme levels beyond management, the body responds with neurological, chemical, and hormonal changes that diminish function and immunity, leading to injury and disease.
