Not Just About Relieving Pain
Chiropractic is not just about relieving pain; it’s about enhancing even the seemingly healthy person’s function, performance, and quality of life. Chiropractic looks at not only the structural but the mental, emotional, and nutritional side of wellness. Chiropractic care ensures that the spine works properly to maximize normal nerve flow and minimize pressure on the nervous system from stress and postural strain or injury, leading to pain, dysfunction, and decreased quality of life. It is gratifying to see people of all ages turning to chiropractic as a safe and effective alternative to medication and surgery for a wide variety of health issues.
Chiropractic care aims to relieve pain, promote healing, restore and maintain function, reduce the likelihood of re-injury, restore proper motion, and prevent accelerated degenerative spine disease. However, comprehensive chiropractic healthcare goes much further. It all comes back to wellness, defined as not simply the absence of sickness. Wellness suggests a proactive lifestyle approach, which results in optimal physical, emotional, and social well-being. This involves learning how to get healthy and stay healthy by practicing positive health habits and giving up harmful ones. To do this, we teach people to listen and respond to their bodies warning signals before illness interrupts life’s activities. The chiropractor’s role is to facilitate and increase the potential for health so we can live life to its fullest.
Chiropractic Care In Los Angeles
Over the last 124 years, chiropractic care has been the leading natural and non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions. The field of chiropractic medicine continues to change. Our clinic specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic care with spinal rehabilitative exercises for pain management and pain relief, with the long-term goal of spinal stability. Chiropractic care works by first relieving the tension or inflammation of the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain. When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. With chiropractic care, patients respond to painful spinal conditions and other conditions affecting the entire body.
What We Offer!
At the office of Steven M. Gillis, DC, located in Los Angeles, CA, we offer holistic care, as all of our treatments are non-invasive alternatives to traditional medicine. Holistic care addresses the patient as an individual rather than a symptom or condition. Care at our office includes chiropractic adjustments, spinal corrective rehabilitative exercises, and wellness and lifestyle education. Because your entire body is based on signals sent through your spine, chiropractic adjustments and rehabilitation can often correct an upset that lies elsewhere in the body as well as those directly related to the spinal column. In addition, we offer post-surgical pain management when necessary, as well as coordinate your care with other providers. We are dedicated to addressing your health conditions’ root cause, whether physical, nutritional, emotional, mental, or social.
