When mind and body are in balance, the natural expression of health is effortless.
“There is a vast difference between treating the effects and adjusting the cause.”— BJ Palmer, son of the founder of chiropractic
Listen to your body. It knows.
People of all ages come to Balance Atlanta for a variety of reasons.
Spinal adjustments serve to re-establish normal communication between the brain, the spinal cord and the body through vertebral motion and position in the spine.
With nine years of higher education, clinical internships, and the completion of state and national board examinations, doctors of chiropractic are recognized as primary health care providers.
They are experts in detecting and correcting the Vertebral Subluxation Complex – namely the damaging effects of improper spinal biomechanics leading to pinched and irritated nerves, muscle spasm or weakness, inflammation, scar tissue and bone degeneration. The purpose of the nerve system is to coordinate the function of all muscles, glands and organ systems. Think of it as a high-speed internet system. Considering the many layers of physical, emotional and chemical stress the nerve system accumulates over a lifetime, restoring and maintaining the body’s ability to handle stress is essential.
Chiropractic is about one thing: performance.
The goal of chiropractic is to gently correct the alignment of specific vertebrae that may be aggravating the central nerve system.
By restoring proper biomechanics and relieving neurological damage, the body is better able return to homeostasis. When the nerve system transmits information without interference, muscles, glands, and organs function efficiently. Chiropractic patients experience faster healing and greater balance – our natural state of health. Chiropractors do not claim to cure diseases or conditions. Instead, their job is to:
- find and correct the cause of the problem,
- enhance the body’s ability to maintain health, and
- encourage patients to pursue a wellness-based lifestyle – athletes, parents, children, business people, cancer survivors, or rock stars alike!
