Chiropractic Care in Little Rock
Chiropractic is a health care profession that emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system. Our chiropractor in Little Rock, AR, Dr. Faulkenberry, performs adjustments (manipulations) to the spine or other parts of the body. The goal is to correct alignment problems, ease pain, and support the body's natural ability to heal itself.
What do Chiropractors do?
Chiropractors are concerned with locating and treating the vertebral subluxations. A chiropractic subluxation is the altered position of the vertebra which results in subsequent functional loss. This joint change can compromise neural integrity and may influence function and general health.
Using a number of highly refined skills, a chiropractor checks the patient’s spine for any misalignments, fixations, or abnormalities. If subluxations or other abnormalities are detected the chiropractor will apply a gentle corrective force to the affected area.
In addition to spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue techniques such as a massage in Little Rock, physiological therapeutics, dietary changes and lifestyle modification may also be used to facilitate healing
Chiropractic and medical doctors differ in how they approach some health conditions. Chiropractors take a more holistic approach which includes identifying and correcting the cause of the ailment.
